Nope. It's made out of fishing boats on purpose. He was given the cross on his latest trip to Africa. It's actually made of pieces of ships that tried to make it to Europe; but, failed. It's a pretty symbolic cross; all in all.

For diplomatic purpose, as a Cleric. His Charisma points will determine his success in "Turn/Rebuke Undead" and Diplomacy checks;  Has a pope, I imagine he must pretty high in Charisma and, as such, It would not be wise to get him to do a Charisma check. He could very well be immune to "Charm Person" spells

For warring purposes, we have to consider his abilities to cast melee spells, such as "Holy Aura", "Create Greater Undead" and "Cure Serious Wounds, Mass". The ability to cast spells are determine by the cleric's Wisdom. As pope, I can imagine his Wisdom points to be pretty high; a such, prepare for him to be able to cast a LOT of level 8-9 spells.

I would not attacks a pope without at least few clerics on my sides in the background casting , some "Cloak of Chaos" or "Spell Immunity, Greater" to protect my men.

The end of WWII led to the end of shooting wars in Western Europe. Elsewhere, it led to the Korean war, the war in Indochina which became the Vietnam war, war in Algeria, countless and continuing wars in subsaharan Africa, repeated wars in the Middle East, bloody communist coups all over Eastern Europe, bloody put downs of demands for more open societies in Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and East Germany.

WW2 also led to the end of some 30, 40 million people.

Those numbers are so large there's really no way to comprehend how bad it was, except to say that it was the worst human-initiated disaster in history.

So yeah WW2 should be our model.

The end of WWII precipitated the end of colonialism which in turn created the sudden instabilities which precipitated those wars.  Colonialism, especially in Africa, had its own very special brand of evil, but a proper preparation to decolonization, especially in the drawing of national and (sad, but necessary) ethnic boundaries, might have prevented some of the bloodshed.

In Asia, the end of WWII enabled the Chinese revolution which in turn left a strong and aggressive communist presence which led to both the Korean and Indochinese wars.

I would rather he actually do something useful and productive, such as spending some of the church's money to purchase relief supplies to help out those in need.  Prayer is just a way the fools delude themselves into thinking that they are actually doing something to help, when in fact they are doing absolutely nothing at all.
