Franciscans Institute Catholic Worship Above King David’s Tomb

Only one day after the Pope’s interfaith prayer for peace at the Vatican in Rome, eye witness reports and video evidence appear to indicate that regular Catholic Mass has begun in the Cenacle Room above King David’s Tomb, located on the Diaspora Yeshiva campus on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. This despite a rash of Israeli government denials that came in the wake of Pope Francis’s visit to Israel, Jordan and Palestinian areas two weeks ago. There are a lot of unanswered questions, for example:

Why is it that Franciscan Friar Pierbattista Pizzaballa, a man who lays claim to the Cenacle Room above the King David’s Tomb and other properties in Israel, was so visibly involved in every aspect of the Pope’s” non-political” interfaith prayer ceremony at the Vatican yesterday?

The answer may be in this breaking news item:

You have to wonder how the Jews who joined the Kiddush Club on the Vatican lawn yesterday are feeling now.

Unfortunately for the Jewish state, the city of Jerusalem and people of Israel, it seems outgoing President Shimon Peres chose to take his last diplomatic bow facing Rome.
