After spending several years visiting the churches in Asia, Paul moved on once again into Europe to strengthen his churches in Macedonia before returning to Jerusalem (via Turkey). However, upon his arrival Paul discovered that his preaching had caused so much opposition from local religious leaders, that he was arrested and spent two years imprisoned. Exercising his right as a Roman Citizen to an appeal in front of the Emperor, he was shipped off to Rome as a prisoner.

In May 2001, Pope John Paul II spoke to 23,000 people gathered in St Peter’s Square of his forthcoming pilgrimage to Greece, Syria and Malta, and asked the faithful to accompany him in prayer “on this trip which is so meaningful to me”.
