Chaldean Patriarchate: No "Approval" from The Patriarch to The Emigration of Christians in Germany and Canada PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 13 January 2015 11:50

With an official statement the Patriarchate of Babylon of the Chaldeans denies the allegations circulated online that Patriarch Louis Raphael I granted his approval to the emigration of 13 thousand Iraqi Chaldean Christians in Canada and Germany. These strange statements - reads the statement, issued by the official media of the Patriarchate and also sent to Agenzia Fides - turn out to be completely unfounded. Regarding the emigration of Christians from Iraq, the Patriarchate endorses the position already expressed on other occasions: whoever decides to leave the Country torn by sectarian conflicts and destabilized by the creation of the Islamic Caliphate, does it in full freedom.

Bethlehem has always loomed large in our imagination. For generations, the feelings evoked by this town have been captured in multiple art forms, serving to inspire both believers and non-believers with its message of hope and the joyful promise of new life.

For those who do not know the place, Bethlehem possesses a timeless quality, derived from these artistic creations. It is a place of mystery and contradictions. It is the peaceful little town that played an out-sized role in history; the birthplace of Jesus, the child born in a cave, heralded by angels, and visited by shepherds and kings. For hundreds of millions of Christians world-wide, these are the images that define Bethlehem. Sadly, in reality, all of this is but a fantasy, since the pressures of daily life confronted by the residents of this historic community paint a remarkably different portrait.

altOnce again, we gather in Bethlehem, from around the world, to celebrate the story of our Lord Jesus’ birth. Our hearts are filled with joy as we hear again the Good News that Christ is born, and God is with us. All earth is hopeful, the Savior comes at last! We have heard the Angel announcing “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11)

The Christmas story always fills us with joy, and yet we know that all was not calm on that holy night in Bethlehem.

altBETHLEHEM — This holy city is praying for another Christmas miracle.

Months of violence near this cradle of Christianity has dampened visits by holiday pilgrims, and there are few signs tourism will rebound anytime soon. Still, residents hope the expected upsurge of visitors on Christmas Eve will lead to long-term cheer in the struggling tourism industry.

"There are no tourists. It's been this way for half a year, but we understand the hotels are full for Christmas, so that's a glimmer of hope," said Louis Michel, a storekeeper and resident of this town where tradition holds the Virgin Mary gave birth to Jesus.
