What is the “Holy Land”? PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 03 October 2014 06:41

altReflection – The answer seems obvious, yet the term “Holy Land” alone calls to mind millennia of history: the stories of different people and different countries.  From a geographical, biblical and spiritual perspective without dismissing political or apolitical considerations, the question “What is the Holy Land” is placed in a context of perhaps not having an answer but an invitation to reflection.

altThe head of the Vatican’s Council for Christian Unity says he regrets that Catholics and Orthodox leaders are unable to give a stronger sign of unity for Christians suffering persecution in the Middle East.

Cardinal Kurt Koch has just returned from a meeting in Amman where he served as co-president of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Orthodox and Catholic Churches. A communique released on Wednesday reflects the difficulties the two sides encountered in the search for agreement on the theme ‘Synodality and Primacy’ which has been at the heart of the discussions since a 2007 plenary meeting in Ravenna, Italy.

altThe "issue of the Christian Arabs" has always been the main concern of His Majesty the King. In addition to the historic initiatives which Jordan hosted and founded--to become conspicuously global in today's world where religion has a say in large and minute affairs--His Majesty’s address at the United Nations this year has had resounding global media reverberations. The Christian Arabs are an integral part of the fabric, even if this Arab fabric is torn apart, as His Majesty said: “Arab Christians are an integral part of our region’s past, present, and future."

Bishop Younan Attends the FMEEC Conference On Evangelicals and Christian Presence in The East PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 29 September 2014 05:10

altThis Conference comes as a follow up to FMEEC’s previous conference on the same topic that was held in Beirut, Lebanon in 2012. It also comes at a very critical moment in our history because of the tragically deteriorating situation of Christians in the Middle East region, but especially in Iraq and Syria; where widespread proliferation of “takfiri” terrorism and violence, unprecedented in Middle East history, has wrought waves of killing, destruction and displacement. All this, is in addition to the tension and violence currently prevailing in Palestine and Lebanon.

U.S. Bishops: Even the Barrier Wall and the New Colonies Close the Door to Peace PDF Print E-mail

altWashington - In the Holy Land, "the route of the barrier wall, the confiscation of Palestinian lands in the West Bank, especially now in the Bethlehem area and the Cremisan Valley, and any expansion of settlements threaten to undermine the two-state solution". This is what was expressed in a statement from 18 US prelates who made a prayer pilgrimage to Israel and the Palestinian Territories organized by the US Episcopal Commmision for justice and international peace, presided over by Bishop Richard E. Pates of the Diocese of Des Moines. In the days of the pilgrimage, held shortly after the last Israeli military operation in Gaza, the Bishops speak of "having encountered pain, intransigence and cynicism. But also saw signs of inspiration and hope". Many reported - they write - that the window of opportunity for peace was narrowing dangerously. If it closes, the futures of both Palestinians and Israelis will be harmed".
