Thursday, 12 February 2015 08:57

altBethlehem - "They want to build the separation Wall in the Cremisan valley and then expropriate the lands that belong to Palestinian Christians. If that happens, the whole area will be suppressed from the grip of the wall, and the first to go will be Christians". This is the future scenario envisioned to Agenzia Fides by the mayor of Bethlehem, the Palestinian Catholic Vera baboun, who on Wednesday, February 11 met Pope Francis at the end of the general Audience and then was received by Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, together with Nicola Khamis (Mayor of Beit Jala), Hani al-Hayek (Mayor of Beit Sahour) and Issa Kassissieh, Ambassador of Palestine to the Holy See.

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.

Patriarch Kirill: Real Genocide of Christian Population Perpetrated Before Our Eyes in Middle East PDF Print E-mail

His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia, in his remarks during the opening of the Russian Orthodox Church Bishops’ Conference on February 2, 2015, stated that Christians continue to be persecuted on a mass scale in several states of the Middle East.

‘The continued persecution of Christians in several countries of the world, especially in the Middle East, is a matter of our Church’s meticulous attention. Using violent measures, killing Christians for their confession of faith in Christ, extremists seek to physically eliminate Christianity itself, to break the existing interreligious balance’, he said in his report to the Bishops’ Conference at the Church of Christ the Saviour in Moscow.
