Catholic Patriarch of Jerusalem’s moving letter on the situation in the Holy Land

“I feel the need to share with you a word that has its origin in the Gospel of Jesus, because after all that is where we must all start from and where we must always return. A word from the Gospel that helps us to live this tragic moment by uniting our feelings to those of Jesus”, says Cardinal Pizzaballa in his letter to the Catholics of the Diocese of Jerusalem.
