ASIA/HOLY LAND - CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM LATIN PATRIARCH OF JERUSALEM

Jerusalem (Fides Service) – “Fear not. Hark, I bring you tidings of great joy: unto us a Saviour is born” (Lk 2,10-11). This passage from St Luke’s Gospel was the centre of a Christmas Message addressed to Christians and all people of good will in the Holy Land by Latin Patriarch Michel Sabbah in Jerusalem. Urging governors to speak words of peace and to act with peace, the Patriarch said he hoped Christmas would mark the end of hostilities and the beginning of a period of hope and peace for the martyred people of the Holy Land.
