A Historical ''Memorial'' For Pope John Paul II at the Baptism Site PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 11 February 2015 09:14

altIn memory of Pope St. John Paul II’s visit to the Baptism Site, a historical memorial was erected 15 years ago. On the pilgrimage day at the Baptism Site which coincides on January 16, 2015, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Fouad Twal—accompanied by a number of bishops and Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Nidal Qatamin—visited the memorial next to the site where the Pope had prayed.

The memorial displays a picture of the Saint Pope praying in front of Mar Elias Hill. Under the mosaic picture the last words uttered by the Pope—during his historic visit on March 21, which marks its jubilee—are inscribed. In the inscription the Pope pledges to pray for Jordan, its King, its people and for the sick and the elderly in particular, something that Patriarch Twal recalled in his homily on the pilgrimage day this year.
