Let Us Hold Unswervingly to the Hope We Profess PDF Print E-mail

Dear Brothers and Sisters,


With the onset of spring and Holy Week approaching, it is a time for renewed Hope in spite of a long cold winter and seemingly intractable violence in many parts of the Middle East.  


We saw a glimmer of that this past week with the announcement by White House Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough, who publically declared that the Israeli Occupation "must end."

However, "Hope", like that little mustard seed, is something, that needs to be nurtured and tended to.Last July, during the attack on Gaza, I had organized a delegation that nurtured this most recent hopeful White House Declaration last July.

Patriarch Twal: Weary We May Be, But Not Without Hope PDF Print E-mail

While lamenting that the situation in the Holy Land is troubling and its Christians are being tested, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem said that if we trust in the name of the Lord—and Him only—those suffering can be helped. During this interview, His Beatitude Fouad Twal said that the Psalms remind us that we can have hope.

“As the Psalm 27 writer says,” he recalled, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.’ And Psalm 146: ‘Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.’”

HCEF CEO & President, Sir Rateb Rabie, KCHS, and BSCC Elder Members


HCEF is proud to employ over 20 life-giving programs, each one playing a special role in caring for people of the Holy Land. With every project HCEF undertakes, not only are we focused on fulfilling the needs of the intended direct beneficiaries, but also the needs of all those involved in the project. That is why each of our efforts to care for specific populations are also efforts in creating jobs across the board and building up the community as a whole. Two amazing examples of this are HCEF's Birzeit Senior Citizen Center (BSCC) and the Handicraft Workshop Development (HWD).
