The end of the era of the pilgrim Pope?

The prospect that Pope Francis may soon undergo knee surgery could put an end to the “era of the pilgrim Pope,” according to Marco Grieco, journalist at the Italian daily Domani. He notes that apart from the trip to Malta, the Pontiff has not left Rome this year, and that, apart from an African trip to the DRC and South Sudan, many projects seem to be on hold for now. However the journalist wonders if the uncertainty about several trips, notably to Lebanon, could be a sign of “mistrust of the Holy See’s geopolitical weight in the international community.” The prospects of a meeting with Kirill in the Middle East or a trip to Kazakhstan – problematic because of the context with Russia and China – would tend to confirm this idea. No news about the trip to Canada has emerged either, notes the journalist, who concludes by saying that it is known that “the silences of the Pope speak louder than his words.”
