Welcome to Bethlehem!

A nun waves to the helicopter carrying Pope Francis on his way to a mass in Manger Square next to the Church of the Nativity, traditionally believed to be the birthplace of Jesus Christ in the Palestinian West Bank city of Bethlehem, Sunday, May 25, 2014. Francis landed in Bethlehem, the cradle of Christianity, in a symbolic nod to Palestinian aspirations for their own state. He called the stalemate in peace talks "unacceptable."
