SAFEGUARDING THE CHRISTIAN PRESENCE IN THE HOLY LAND
- The effects of this pilgrimage will likely be enduring, perhaps even epic. The sea change in Catholic-Jewish relations has been registered by people who may have heard something about it previously, but have now seen it embodied. One can only hope that the Palestinian people, seeing what mature leadership looks like, will be able to demand it of their own leaders. As for the impact on the Catholic Church, I’d venture the guess that this pilgrimage will, one day, loom large in the deliberations of the conclave that chooses John Paul’s successor”many years from now, I devoutly hope.
