CWN Editor's Note: In an interview with Aid to the Church in Need, Abbot Nikodemus Schnabel of the Abbey of the Dormition in Jerusalem discussed the catastrophic effects of the war on the Holy Land’s Christians.

Christians, he said, were among those killed in Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israel and in the subsequent Israeli military response in Gaza. In addition, “many Christians work as bus drivers, restaurant owners, hotel staff, or tour guides. The lack of pilgrims has resulted in an economic catastrophe for them.”
