An interesting proposal from the Armenian Archbishop of Baghdad, Emmanuel Dabbaghian: that all the world’s bishops make an annual pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
The Holy Land is a country of pilgrimage and is where the Lord revealed himself and lived among us. The Lord wishes to be visited, loved, consulted.
Archbishop Dabbaghian suggests the pope coordinate this, but would the pope himself be bound to visit as a gesture of leadership? Would you think such a gesture would stem the Christian exodus from the Middle East?
