Following his arrival Sunday afternoon at Ben-Gurion Airport, Pope Francis continued on his tour of the Holy Land with a stop at Mt. Scopus in Jerusalem.

Upon landing in Israel, the pope said that it was God's will that Jerusalem be "the city of peace" as its name suggests, but unfortunately the city is still suffering from the consequences of a continuing conflict.
