PRAYER AND ACTION FOR PALESTINE THIS ADVENT & CHRISTMAS 2019
In Bethlehem, Christmas is a remembrance of what happened
2,000 years ago. In the hearts of people, there is joy and prayer but
also sadness: O Lord, have mercy. Because in Bethlehem, in all the Holy
Land, Israel and Palestine, soldiers armed with weapons dare to silence
the voice of the angels.
