I didn’t follow much the news about the Pope’s visit to Israel last week. I once had the pleasure to shake the Pope’s hand. Not this one, but the previous, previous, previous one. The one just before the one that was (probably) killed. At the time I didn’t realise how momentous the moment was. I guess it was due to my young age; I was barely a teenager.
Anyway, so because I didn’t follow the news, I was happy that Jon Stewart summarised the Pope’s visit for me.
