Jerusalem patriarchate sends Ramadan greetings
June 10, 2016
The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem has sent greetings to Muslims for the month of Ramadan.
“In a Middle East beset by violence, we ask God to help every person to respect one other, to pray and be courageous that hatred and injustice will have no force of law in our region, the cradle of civilizations,” the patriarchate stated.
Its statement continued, “Our thoughts are with Syria, a country devastated by many years of conflict, to the Iraqi war, to Egypt striving to recover from a difficult political transition, to Jordan or Lebanon destabilized by the daily influx of refugees, and to the Holy Land where ongoing violence continue to raise fears of a worsening conflict.”
