Latin Patriarch's Midnight Mass Homily. . . Bethlehem last night.

Midnight Mass happened in the David's city last night. Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal of Jerusalem presided and preached, pronouncing among other things:
Peace is a right for all men. It is also the solution for all conflicts and differences. War does not produce peace, prisons do not guarantee stability. The highest of walls do not assure security. Neither the aggressor nor the aggressed enjoy peace. Peace is a gift of God and only God can give that peace: "My peace I give to you" Jesus says. "I do not give to you as the world gives" (Jn 14:27).
