    “…despite excitement in the country there are doubts the visit will have a lasting impact.”

    You don’t say. Not even after he successfully cleansed Italy of the Mafia by wagging his finger at them and tut-tutting?

    I’d like to see the pope stop in Medjugorje, where Mary has been appearing daily since 1984. He could sit down and hear confessions. Most priests who visit there, hear confessions from early evening until midnight, and then do it all over again the next day. Medjugoje is the largest confessional in Europe. The pope should recognize that. If you could statistically list the Sacrament of Reconciliation by “hits”, then Medjugorje would show a data spike since 1984, sending it through the roof. Come on Pope Francis!

    Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6,7), and he was also the messenger of peace when on earth. He advised that those who use the sword will perish by the sword, and that true Christians should love their enemies and pray for those persecuting them (Matthew 26:52; 5:44).

    Nothing the Pope says or does will bring the entire world of mankind “real peace,” but the millennial rule of Christ Jesus, King of God’s kingdom, in the near future, will (Isaiah 11:1-9).

    Peace is a powerful weapon of mass construction.
