Two white doves that were released as a peace gesture by children standing alongside Pope Francis were attacked by other birds.
As tens of thousands of people watched in St Peter’s Square on Sunday, a seagull and a large black crow swept down on the doves after they were set free from an open window of the Apostolic Palace.
One dove lost some feathers as it broke free from the gull. But the crow pecked repeatedly at the other dove. It was not clear what happened to the doves as they flew off.

I do not think we should pay to much attention to this “peace initiative” from the Papacy. Jesus said: “Look at the birds”, related to created beings that do bot have to worry.
But the Messiah was not willing to let the doves of he Pope be used to underline the importance of this scripture.
