Not sure why he's wearing a pectoral diamond
The Israeli border guards seem to have blocked a bunch of Bishops going into Gaza to pray with the Christian community there. Link to the story here.
Bishop Lang said
Being held up for eight hours at the Erez crossing was difficult and disappointing as we were unable to celebrate Mass with the people in the Holy Family parish in Gaza. It did, at the same time, give us a small insight into the experiences of the few Gazans who are allowed to come in and out of Gaza.I wonder if they would have been so easily turned away if they were in full regalia in a series of black Mercedes!
Still... it's pretty bad form. And for a Lion of Judah as well...
