Bridging the Gap Dug By Hatred

In the light of yesterday's post about The Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism, Catholics in the Holy Lands of Israel and Palestine play an essential role.

"We are all called to work to build bridges and to uproot hatred from hearts," Archbishop Fouad Twal said. Archbishop Twal is coadjutor patriarch of Jerusalem.
[A coadutor is a bishop assisting a diocesan bishop and often having the right to succeed him. As one of the four ancient sees, Jerusalem's bishops are known as patriarchs.]

Archbishop Twal made his appeal at the recent Meeting of Friendship Among Peoples. His appeal ended with words of hope, and reminders of hope in the Holy Lands of Israel and Palestine cannot be heard often enough.
