The Holy Land

The Holy Land is a vast topic. It can profitably be considered from the vantage points of Scripture, history, politics, religious conflict and spirituality. It is an inexhaustible mine of divine riches and human woes.

Christians might be excused for starting with the plight of their own. What is happening to Catholics and other Christians in the land Our Lord chose as His home?

Inevitably, however, one wishes to pass from fact to policy. In this connection it is extremely useful to examine the purposes of the Holy See in that region of the world, considering carefully how recent popes would like to see the various problems resolved.

Finally, we should never forget the spiritual significance of the Holy Land, and how that significance can be a source of increased sadness over the present situation. Both are captured in the series of addresses and audiences which Pope John Paul II gave throughout his pilgrimage to the Holy Land in March of 2000.

If you only have time to look at three things, LOOK AT THESE.

  1. The Plight of Christians in the Holy Land
  2. The Holy See's Purposes in the Holy Land
  3. John Paul II's Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
