Bishops Call for Human Dignity as Basis of Peace - Statement of the Co-ordination of Bishops’ Conferences in support of the Church in the Holy Land

E-mail Print PDF

Holy Land 2015-1We came to pray with and support the Christian community and to promote peace and human dignity in this divided land.

We witnessed the tragic consequences of the failure of both local and international politicians to advance peace. Human dignity is given by God and is absolute. The ongoing conflict assaults the dignity of both Palestinians and Israelis, but in a particular way our commitment to the poor calls us to lift up the suffering people in Gaza. A year ago, we called Gaza "a man-made disaster, a shocking scandal, an injustice that cries out to the human community for a resolution." In the wake of the terrible destruction caused by last year's war, our presence reminded the small Christian community that they are not forgotten.
