Reflections From Palestine: a Christian Blog From Gaza PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 11 August 2014 08:08
GAZA – Dina, a Christian woman originally from Jerusalem, has spent six days in Gaza with a medical team. In her mother’s blog “Reflections from Palestine – A Journey of hope” she tells what is happening in Gaza, and shares the frightening vision of a devastated tight peace of land.
Today is day six in Gaza, the day it all starts getting to you. Yesterday we went out to look around and started saw the devastation. Homes destroyed, pharmacies, doctors’ surgeries…all blatant violations of the Geneva Conventions. I was still detached, I went around with my colleague Dr. Haytham, accompanied by old friends from Gaza. Dr. Yehia drove us around; we started in the Shejaieh neighborhood and Hay al Tuffah. The destruction, the putrid smells – I could see his pain as he showed us where was born and where his children were born. They destroyed my memories, he said. I could see him taking in a deep breath as he said this was enough for today…we were both seeing this destruction for the first time.
Pope Makes Angelus Appeal for Peace in Iraq, Gaza PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 11 August 2014 06:48
Pope Francis renewed his call for prayer and practical support for the suffering populations of Iraq today (Sunday). Addressing the crowds gathered in St Peter’s Square for the Angelus, the Holy Father also made prayerful appeals for an end to the fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, and for the victims of the Ebola outbreak and for all those fighting to stop it. “Let us pray together to the God of peace,” said Pope Francis, “through the intercession of the Virgin Mary: Give us peace, O Lord, in our days, and make us builders of justice and peace.”
Vatican Radio’s English translation of the full text of Pope Francis’ address follows below: 
Dear brothers and sisters,
The news reports coming from Iraq leave us in dismay and disbelief: thousands of people, including many Christians, driven from their homes in a brutal manner; children dying of thirst and hunger in their flight; women taken and carried off; violence every kind; destruction of historical, cultural and religious patrimonies. All this gravely offends God and humanity. Hatred is not to be carried in the name of God! War is not to be waged in the name of God!

Prayers Finally Heard – Gaza Update PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 07 August 2014 06:46
altToday marks the second day of the 72-hour ceasefire agreement which concluded nearly a month of vicious hostilities. Just 5 minutes before the ceasefire went into effect; I heard a large explosion from my home in the Old City of Jerusalem, only to find out later that it was a rocket that was fired from Gaza and mistakenly landed on a home in Beit Sahour causing moderate damages. We continue to pray that this ceasefire will lead to something more permanent and hopefully in a very short period of time, a sincere resumption of peace negotiations that will address all of the root causes of this conflict and the never ending cycles of violence where civilians end-up paying the heaviest price.
