"A Spiritual Force"

Principally to justify the hefty price-tag news organizations pay to nab a seat on the Volo Papale, the Pope continued the tradition of holding an in-flight press conference on this morning's hop to Amman.

While prior papal pressers in the cabin caused controversy and set the first-day tone for several of B16's eleven prior foreign trips, today's plane-points focused on interreligious dialogue and cooperation.

Ergo, unlike last time, no "damage control" in the offing.
