    It looks good, but I can’t get the English subtitles to work.

    I did understand “Baba Francis”.

      The video by the Palestinian Committee for Church Affairs contains messages by different Gazans expressing their welcome to Pope Francis and asking for his prayers for God to bring peace to the land.

      It’s a happy video since you can tell how much these Christians of Gaza are excited about the visit but at the same time, it’s also a sad one as we know that these people are actually in a jail of sorts and are not free to go to the other side of Palestine to actually cheer their visitor. They are as if celebrating the visit from behind prison bars.

      just, move your cursor over the ‘cc’ in the youtube bar below the video, click yes. then click the screen and make sure that bar sinks because the subtitles are in back of the black bar.

    One guy says he just want the Pope to realize “we want to live like all other people around the world.”
