Pope John Paul the Second has embarked on a politically sensitive pilgrimage to the West Bank town of Bethlehem, revered as the place of Jesus’ birth.
The Pope kissed a golden bowl of Palestinian soil on his arrival on Wednesday, in a highly charged gesture normally reserved for sovereign states.
In the presence of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, the pontiff also reaffirmed what he said was the Palestinians’ “natural right to a homeland.”
The Pope flew from Jerusalem to the West Bank town of Bethlehem by helicopter on Wednesday morning.
The day before, while flying over the West Bank en route from Jordan to Israel, the pontiff sent a telegram of good wishes to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat – a papal recognition normally awarded only heads of state.
The papal helicopter touched down near Arafat’s presidential palace, where the pontiff was formally received by Palestinian clerics, diplomats and officials at the start of his only stop in Palestinian territory on his week-long Holy Land visit.
As John Paul stepped off his Blackhawk helicopter, the Palestinians – in a gesture laden with symbolism for their statehood hopes – presented him with a golden bowl of soil, to which the pontiff briefly touched to his lips.
The speaker of the Palestinian parliament said the gesture was powerful recognition of Palestinian independence.
But Vatican officials were quick to play down the event, suggesting the gesture was religious in nature.
As the pontiff moved slowly forward, Arafat put a steadying hand on his stooped, bent back.
The Vatican has said the Pope’s week-long Holy Land tour was a spiritual journey and that he wanted to stay above the political fray.
But that has turned out to be a nearly impossible task.
On Tuesday, upon the Pope’s arrival in Israel, Israeli leaders made repeated references to disputed Jerusalem as the eternal Israeli capital.
The Palestinians demand the eastern sector of the city as their capital.
In his speech in Arabic welcoming the pope, Arafat claimed the city as the eternal capital of Palestine.
Arafat’s translator also used the phrase “occupied Jerusalem,” but Arafat himself did not.
“The Palestinian people value highly your principled position in support of their cause and their rightful presence in their homeland as a sovereign and independent people. Throughout their history, the Palestinian people lived in fear of god and mutual respect with the blessings of the Church of the Nativity, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the holy mosque.”
SUPER CAPTION: Yasser Arafat, Palestinian leader
Palestinian officials said the pope’s arrival speech was a clear endorsement of their cause.
The Pope reaffirmed what he said was the Palestinians’ “natural right to a homeland” and said the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should be resolved “on the basis of international law and the relevant U-N resolutions and declarations.
“The Holy See has always recognised that the Palestinian people have the natural right to a homeland and the right to be able to live in peace and tranquillity with the other peoples of this area. Your tolerance is before the rest of the world.”
SUPER CAPTION: Pope John Paul II
The Palestinians have argued that under U-N resolutions calling for an Israeli withdrawal from lands occupied in the 1967 and 1973 Mideast wars, Israel must hand back all of the
West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.
Israel has a different interpretation, saying the resolutions do not refer to all war-won land.
Israeli Cabinet Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami played down the Pope’s remarks, saying the pontiff was reiterating the Vatican’s traditional position.

this was the driving theme that inspired a worldwide movement more than 50 years ago.
The United States of America is one of the most industrialized producers of food in the entire world.
Here in the U.S., we are so successful at food production that every day, nearly 40% of food produced in the U.S. will go uneaten or discarded.
Soup kitchens, shelters and local churches have been providing free meals for over a century. But these places provide one meal at a time and only to those who are physically able to show up. A place where a family or a shelter could get a weeks’ worth of groceries, for all of the people they feed, simply did not exist.
Until the 1960’s when a compassionate man named John Van Hengel along with a few other resourceful Phoenicians came up with a simple, yet ground breaking notion; – gather food where there is an abundance and deliver it to those in need. A simple thought that no one had dreamt prior to 1967.
So, with a three thousand dollar loan from his church, St. Mary’s Basilica, John Van Hengel secured an old abandoned bakery in South Phoenix and opened St. Mary’s Food Bank…. The World’s First Food Bank.
So why the name Food Bank?
What started out as an innovative idea to help feed the hungry has blossomed into a worldwide movement. Currently there are over 200 food banks in the United States, and hundreds more around the world helping tens of millions of people every day find their next meal and transition into self-sustainability. All thanks to a man and his desire to help those in need.
Fifty years later, St. Mary’s Food Bank will be distributing its one billionth meal. That’s enough to feed the entire population of the United States, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner with plenty of leftovers.
Since 1967, St. Mary’s Food Bank remains a team of extraordinarily compassionate and innovative people who just happen to be operating the world’s first food bank. Their number one goal remains to work themselves out of business, when going out of business means ending hunger. And for that, tens of millions of people around the world are grateful.

San Antonio is the seventh most populous city in the United States and the second most populous city in both Texas and the Southern United States. Founded as a Spanish mission and colonial outpost in 1718, the city became the first chartered civil settlement in Texas in 1731, making it the state’s oldest municipality. The city’s deep history is contrasted with its rapid growth: it was the fastest-growing of the top ten largest cities in the United States from 2000 to 2010, and the second from 1990 to 2000. Straddling the regional divide between South and Central Texas, San Antonio anchors the southwestern corner of an urban megaregion colloquially known as the “Texas Triangle”.
San Antonio serves as the seat of Bexar County; recent annexations have extended the city’s boundaries into Medina County and, for a tiny area near the city of Garden Ridge, into Comal County. Since San Antonio was founded during the Spanish Colonial Era, it has a church (San Fernando Cathedral) in its center, on the main civic plaza in front, a characteristic of many Spanish-founded cities, towns, and villages in Spain and Latin America. As with many other Western urban centers, areas outside the city limits are sparsely populated.
San Antonio is the center of the San Antonio–New Braunfels metropolitan statistical area. Commonly called Greater San Antonio, the metro area has a population of 2,473,974 based on the 2017 U.S. census estimate, making it the 24th-largest metropolitan area in the United States and third-largest in Texas. Growth along the Interstate 35 and Interstate 10 corridors to the north, west, and east make it likely that the metropolitan area will continue to expand.
San Antonio was named by a 1691 Spanish expedition for Saint Anthony of Padua, whose feast day is June 13. The city contains five 18th-century Spanish frontier missions, including The Alamo and San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, which together were designated UNESCO World Heritage sites in 2015. Other notable attractions include the River Walk, the Tower of the Americas, SeaWorld, the Alamo Bowl, and Marriage Island. Commercial entertainment includes Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Morgan’s Wonderland amusement parks. According to the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau, the city is visited by about 32 million tourists a year. It is home to the five-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs and hosts the annual San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, one of the largest such events in the U.S.

Established on March 3, 1865, by President Abraham Lincoln, the Bank was a landmark institution that had over $57 million in deposits and 70,000 depositors. The Bank’s records remain the single largest repository of lineage-linked African-American genealogy, containing upwards of 480,000 names.
Members of AAHS will present Freedman’s Bank records at the National Archives, and there will be a moderated discussion with Operation HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant, Ambassador Andrew Young, ESSENCE Magazine Editor-In-Chief Vanessa DeLuca, and other dignitaries on the historical significance of the Bank and how its unfinished journey still resonates today in issues of poverty, income inequality, and race relations. A reception will follow.
The event is free and open to the public, register online.

His church, Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in San Jose, is one of the first to divest its funds from Bank of America to a local credit union. The movement is gaining momentum as more and more churches and individuals divest their money from big banks.
