Mass collection for Good Friday will help Christians in the Holy Land

CARD. LEONARDO SANDRI ;

Prefect, Congregation for the Oriental Churches

“We have a duty to help them. The Christians there are the heirs to the history of the Church, not only in Israel and Palestine, but in all of the Middle East.” ;

The Holy Land is the birthplace to Jesus and the first Christian communities. However, nearly 2,000 years later, their day to day lives are under pressure. ;

CARD. LEONARDO SANDRI ;

Prefect, Congregation for the Oriental Churches ;

“We have a greater duty of solidarity, a duty to say we are here to support you, so that the holy sites can be looked after, so they can be visited and maintained.” ;

The additional economic help will not only help preserve these historic monuments, but also help maintain Christian communities in the birthplace of Christianity. ;
