Francis is getting no extra security when he visits Albania this coming weekend. Just a gut feeling this trip won't end well for him. Hope I'm wrong. I usually am, but just want to get on record.

"Vatican Says No Extra Security for Pope in Albania"

"Italian news reports, citing unnamed sources, have said Albanian law enforcement had flagged to Interpol concerns that Muslim militants who trained in Iraq and Syria had returned and might pose a threat to Francis".

I am an atheist, But I will get round to reading it at some point.

Depends if you think the Pope is a good person I guess.

God doesn't protect the Pope, automobile manufacturers do. Mercedes, Toyota, Ford and Renault have all made highly secure Pope mobiles over the years.

Just in case God isn't watching, I guess.

WIKI for the pope mobile

The feeling I have isn't based on whether others think he's good or not. It's just the timing of this visit, IMHO, isn't an opportune time for a high profile personality visiting a place where Muslim militants are returning. Also with ISIS making their proclamation a few weeks ago for him to be assassinated doesn't bode well.

"ISIS Planning to Assassinate Pope Francis"?

"The assassination rumours of the Pope gained traction after an Italian daily Il Tempo, citing sources from an Israeli Intelligence claimed that the Pope is "in the crosshairs of ISIS".

The report noted that the 77-year old religious leader was being targeted because he is "the greatest exponent of the Christian religions" and the "bearer of false truth".

He just called out WW3 that had already started. He also is the first Pope in a while to stand for actual value of Catholicism. Bet he will get assassinated at some point.

The ArchDuke Franz Ferdinand of our time you are suggesting?

Possibly, since there is still another Pope alive that could get his big white hat back, a rare set of circumstances.

I don't have any proactive theories. But now that you mention it, holy #. He's the first Latin American pope and he's all about true Christian values. He's been notably open about homosexuality and his by far #1 issue is compassion for the poor.

What better way to crush hope than to take out one of the most prominent signs of progress in Christianity and stir up anti Muslim sentiments. Brazil would find it hard to stay with the BRIC too.

Another world war starting in the Balkans would be poetic eh? Plus we know how America feels about whistleblowers

we might find out,, if it happens,,

after all they did nick name him,,

It's also timely that this article came out yesterday. This even furthers my uncomfortable feeling.

"Isil want to assassinate the Pope, says Iraq's ambassador to Vatican"
"Habeeb Al Sadr warns that Isil's "band of criminals" could have Pope Francis in its sights, ahead of the pontiff's visits to Albania and Turkey"

You get the cookie. I said straight out I'm usually wrong, and this was just another instance.

I don't have any feelings of concern for Pope Francis.

He is a 'good' guy..compared to a lot of the other Popes, imo
He is tackling issues that the Church would not even look at.

Tough job... kudos to him.
