Worthy Christian News » World News » 'Intense Prayer Session' for Mideast Peace at Vatican (Video)

Pope Francis carried out a headline-grabbing three-day tour of the Holy Land, visiting refugees, hugging clerics and honoring the victims of the Holocaust. But perhaps the most interesting moment of the trip came during an exchange with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a meeting in Jerusalem. The Israeli premier and the pope found occasion for a slight historical quibble.
Pope Francis carried out a headline-grabbing three-day tour of the Holy Land, visiting refugees, hugging clerics and honoring the victims of the Holocaust. But perhaps the most interesting moment of the trip came during an exchange with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a meeting in Jerusalem. The Israeli premier and the pope found occasion for a slight historical quibble.

Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas are expected to meet at the Vatican Sunday for what is being called an "intense prayer session" with Pope Francis.

The unexpected invitation was extended during the pope's recent visit to the Middle East, where Francis engaged in the kind of photo opportunities that popes usually avoid. He stopped at the barrier erected around the Palestinian territories and at an Israeli memorial for victims of terrorism.

On the plane home, Pope Francis told reporters he is not getting involved in the stalled peace process.

Christopher Hale of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good has argued in Time magazine that the pope's accomplishments in the Middle East have shown him to be "the world's best politician."

    Not sure how a Catholic, a Jew, and a Muslim are going to have a prayer that they can agree on?

    When this pope was in Jordan (talking about Israel giving up some land) they had an earthquake! You can not go against Israel in anyway without consequences!!

    Its already Answered in the Bible,,Believe It or Not, from the Holy Spirit Matthew 10:33-35
    King James Version (KJV)
    33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
    34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

    35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

      This is prophecy. The aim of the papacy is to rule the world like they did in the dark ages, it will happen again, she is just biding her time.
