    These are Christ's words:
    Matthew 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

    As a leader of Christ's people, this is a trip that should be made and henceforth treated with utmost humility.

    "If you wish to plan a tour following in the footsteps of this memorable Papal visit, please let us know. We have arranged special priced tours for groups of 15 people or more."

    For what reason should a Christian's visit be made to the Holy Land? To see the beauty of Jerusalem? Yes. To see and walk about in the places where Christ did? Yes.
    To follow the Pope's footsteps? (What answer does your heart give?)
    Shame on you. Merchandising...it's always about merchandising, isn't it?
