Default Pope's dove of peace attacked by Seagull after Pontiff releases it from balcony

This should give the Doomers something to add to their repertoire.

Watched by thousands of pilgrims below the fearsome gull, leading with its beak, chased and harried the terrified dove as it tried to escape among the ancient pillars and porticos.

It is not the first time the Pope's prayers have not protected his birds of peace. Last year the two doves he released turned tail and flew straight back in through the open window.

'They want to stay in the Pope's home,' Benedict had said.

What he had to say about yesterday's kerfuffle was not known. But someone must have said a quick little prayer, as the dove eventually made good its escape.

Doves of peace are always under attack from one foe or another

Even though the Hawk is a fearsome bird of prey, Crows routinely harass Hawks, they do it all the time and to foxes too. Bluejays dart at Cats. This is the way of nature.

Right on!

I see it as a sign of how evil is attacking Christians all over the world, in a world that is becoming more and more secular and falling away from grace.
