But it’s a task that comes with a major price tag. That’s why Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, has written a letter to bishops all over the world to encourage them to participate in the annual collection for the Holy Land on Good Friday.

The Congregation for Eastern Churches coordinates the Holy Land collection. Each year millions of dollars are raised for the cause.
