(Link to Isaiah 61)

"If neither the words of the Scriptures arouse you, nor do our admonitions penetrate your minds, at least let the great suffering of those who desired to go to the holy places stir you up.

Think of those who made the pilgrimage across the sea!"

Even if they were more wealthy, consider what taxes, what violence they underwent, since they were forced to make payments and tributes almost every mile, to purchase release at every gate of the city, at the entrance of the churches and temples, at every side journey from place to place: also, if any accusation whatsoever were made against them, they were compelled to purchase their release; but if they refused to pay money, the prefects of the Gentiles, according to their custom, urged them fiercely with blows. What shall we say of those who took up the journey without anything more than trust in their barren poverty, since they seemed to have nothing except their bodies to lose? They not only demanded money of them, which is not an unendurable punishment, but also examined the callouses of their heels, cutting them open and folding the skin back, lest, perchance, they had sewed something there. Their unspeakable cruelty was carried on even to the point of giving them scammony to drink until they vomited, or even burst their bowels, because they thought the wretches had swallowed gold or silver; or, horrible to say, they cut their bowels open with a sword and, spreading out the folds of the intestines, with frightful mutilation disclosed whatever nature held there in secret. Remember, I pray, the thousands who have perished vile deaths, and strive for the holy places from which the beginnings of your faith have come. Before you engage in His battles, believe without question that Christ will be your standard-bearer and inseparable forerunner."
The Pope

(Link to exegesis of peace through massive pilgrimage)

Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church:

Isa. 60:1 Arise, (O'Israel), shine; for thy enlightenment is come, and the glory of the LORD, (the meaning of Hebrew scripture), is risen upon thee.

Isa. 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth (for 1000 years), and (a Dark Age), the gross darkness of the people: but the LORD, (the Word), shall arise upon thee thereafter, and his glory shall be seen in the enlightenment upon thee.

Isa. 60:3 And the Gentiles (of Christianity) shall come to thy enlightenment (O'Israel), and kings (of political rule) to the brightness of thy (nation's) rising.

Isa. 60:4 Lift up thine eyes you people of Israel round about, and see (the non-stop flow of pilgrim tourists): all, (the 1.44 billion Christians), they gather themselves together, they come to thee (in the Promised Land): thy (own) sons (of the Diaspora) shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side (from 1948 forever).

Isa. 60:5 Then, thereafter, thou shalt see (these hoards of Christianity, and ye O'Israel), flow together (with them), and thine heart shall fear (the truth of Christ in your conversion), and be enlarged (in understanding of scripture); because the abundance of the sea (of unconscious realizations) shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles, (now Christians, 1.44 billions in number), shall come (as pilgrim/tourists) unto thee.

sa. 60:6 The multitude of (their) camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah (Jordan of today) ; all they from Sheba shall come (to pilgrimage in the Holy Land): they shall bring gold and incense (and economic prosperity); and they shall show forth the praises of the LORD.

Isa. 60:7 All the flocks (of the Jordanian immigrants in Gaza) of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of (the West Bank), Nebaioth, shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory, (the House of Israel and the House of Judah).

Isa. 60:8 Who are these that fly as a cloud (from the Americas), and as the doves (of peace) to their (cathedral) windows (if NOT the Christians)?

Isa. 60:9 Surely the isles (of the New World) shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first (from Western Europe), to bring thy sons (of Abraham) from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD, (YVHV), thy God, (the Word of scripture), and to the Holy One of Israel, (Jesus), because he hath glorified thee (in Christianity).

Isa. 60:10 And the sons of strangers (from the Americas) shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister peace unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee (in Holocaust), but in my favour (restoring my chosen to Israel) have I had mercy on thee.

Isa. 60:11 Therefore thy gates, (O'Promised Land), shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring (as tourists) unto thee the forces of the (rich Christian) Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought (supporting your sovereignty).

Isa. 60:12 For the nation and (religious) kingdom that will not serve thee (Israel, in honoring thy right to exist), shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

Isa. 60:13 The glory (of Golan Heights) of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree (of the West Bank), the pine tree (in Ramallah), and the box (in Gaza) together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary, (the Holy Land); and I will make the place of my feet, (Jerusalem), glorious.

Isa. 60:14 The sons also of them (in Germany and Western Europe, in Russia, too) that afflicted thee (O' Israel), shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee, (the Holy People of scripture), shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee (Hebrew) Christian, The city (of the New Jerusalem) of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel, (The Promised Land).


Isa. 60:15 Whereas thou, (Israel), hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations (in the spiritual fulfillment of scripture).

Isa. 60:16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the (Christian, once called) Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD, (the almighty Power of the Universe), am thy Saviour and (Christ) thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob (David, the root and lion of Judah).

Isa. 60:17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace (officers throughout the Promised Land), and thine exactors (of taxes) righteousness (in economic productivity throughout Israel).

Isa. 60:18 Violence (of Terrorism) shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting by armies nor destruction with extortionistic bombings within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls (Jewish) Salvation, and thy gates (Christian) Praise.

Isa. 60:19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD, (Jesus), shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God, (the rational Universe), thy glory.

Isa. 60:20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy (New) moon withdraw itself (in that day when electricity will light the land): for the LORD, (Jesus), shall be thine everlasting light, (drawing unending pilgrims day and night to thee), and the (2000 years of) days of thy mourning shall be ended.

Isa. 60:21 Thy (Jewish) people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the (Promised) land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work (and prophesied miracle) of my hands, that I, (the Word) may be glorified.

Isa. 60:22 A little one shall become a thousand (in 1948), and a small one a strong nation (by 1980): I the LORD will hasten it in his time.
