People from all walks of life have expressed their solidarity with those living through the conflict in the Holy Land—from Pope Francis and now to New York's Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

CARD. TIMOTHY DOLAN
Archbishop of New York

I must be honest. We have seen reasons to cry. We have seen reasons to smile. We see darkness; we see light; we see death; we see resurrection.

The Cardinal met with different Church leaders in Jerusalem to discuss building fraternity and strengthening the ongoing humanitarian work in the region.

Cardinal Dolan also spoke with both the president of Palestine and of Israel. He encouraged them to find a path to lasting peace and called for money to be spent on building homes, hospitals and care centers rather than on military weapons.

During his short visit, the Cardinal celebrated Mass with the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Cardinal Pierbattista Pizzaballa. The ceremony marked 75 years since the pontifical missions began in Jerusalem.

The ongoing conflict escalated during his visit, cutting the cardinal's trip short. Nonetheless, his presence had an impact.

Cardinal Dolan is the chairman of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association. It is a papal organization founded to support Eastern churches in their pastoral and humanitarian missions.
