Pope Francis Heads to Holy Land, Safety a Concern
Pope Francis will be heading to the Holy Land this weekend for the fiftieth anniversary of Paul VI's 1964 trip, but many are concerned over his safety with the rising levels of violence against the Christian population. Despite lack of American media attention, Christian persecution, like the Sudanese woman sentenced to execution last week for marrying a Christian, extends past the Middle East into India, Indonesia and Kenya among other nations. The pope is set to speak on Christian persecution around the world.
