    It’s a shame that a visit from the Pope will draw millions of the faithful, all looking over their shoulders for a possible terrorist attack. Banning all of these drones, balloons, etc. are necessities of the times, and its great we’re letting the terrorists know exactly how we are protecting the Pope…..why not just paint a target on his zuchetta? Viva, La Papa!

    As I understand, the extreme security measures are being implemented by the city and state, but it’s all being directed by the U.S. Secret Service.

    I keep thinking that these extreme measures are so unnecessary because the Catholic Church could simply solve the whole security problem with just a few novenas and/or ordinary prayers. By not doing so, isn’t the Church tacitly admitting that novenas and ordinary prayers don’t work?

  • Dominic

    Geez, who didn’t see that remark coming? Prayers and prayers connected with novenas are calls to unite your needs with the Will of God, to have you accept the answers on faith in His perfect wisdom. Jesus, Himself, could not pray Himself out of His crucifixion…..for God’s Will saw the greater good resulting from His sacrificial death. Prayer is placing yourself in God’s hands.
    The Pope’s security is not merely for him, but for the millions of faithful who wish to see and hear him. God expects everyone to act appropriately, but there are many out there who dismiss any divine authority and believe their mission is of greater importance. ISIS, for example.

    Ummm, I’m pretty sure that ISIS people believe their mission is fulfilling Allah’s will.

  • Dominic

    And Allah is a false god of a heretical faith.

    They all are false. Even the ones with cool virtual long beards.
