I suppose we expected this: ISIS have threatened the life of the Holy Father. As the world's foremost Christian leader, it should come as no surprise that those martyring Christians would want to take a shot at the Pope.
Well we can be sure Francis is surrounded by good men who can look after him, just as long as he lets them. He is courageous, no doubt about that, but let's hope he's not foolhardy and eschew the Swiss Guard. In reality, the protection he receives, and the care that must be taken, is not about Bergoglio, it is about the Pope who belongs to the People of God. For our sake he must be prudent and take care.
Let us pray for our Holy Father.
