Beatitudine Eminentissima,
Eccellenze,

Al termine della nostra riunione plenaria, che ha avuto luogo dall’8 al10 marzo 2010 sul Monte delle Beatitudini, in presenza di Sua Eccellenza il Nunzio Apostolico, Noi, Ordinari Cattolici di Terra Santa, vogliamo esprimere la nostra fraterna vicinanza alla care chiese dell’Iraq, Pastori e fedeli, senza distinzione, in questi tempi difficili.

Raccogliendo il messaggio del luogo santo che ci accoglie e pensando a voi, le parole di Gesù che più attirano la nostra attenzione sono: “Beati gli afflitti, perché saranno consolati … Beati i perseguitati per causa della giustizia, perché di essi è il Regno dei cieli“, insieme all’altra beatitudine complementare: “Beati gli operatori di pace” (Mt 5,5.10.9)

Noi fedeli di Giordania, Palestina e Israele pensiamo a voi, soffriamo con voi e preghiamo per voi. I vostri fratelli, i cristiani di Terra Santa, uniscono le loro voci a gridare “Basta! “ e innalzano la loro supplica per dire: “Signore, abbi pietà!” . La campagna di solidarietà con i cristiani iracheni e in particolare di Mosul e di tutta la regione di Ninive lanciata da Télélumière, da Nour-Sat, da www.abouna.org Web, da Web www.lpj.org e da altri mezzi di comunicazione sarà anche la nostra.

Con il profeta Giona ci rivolgiamo verso il “Dio misericordioso e clemente, paziente e di immensa bontà, sempre pronto a riconsiderare le sue minacce” (Jo 4,2) per implorare:

– di far sorgere nuovi sentimenti e nuove disposizioni alla conversione in tutti coloro che vivono a Mosul, l’antica Ninive, e perché si convincano che il nostro Dio è un Dio di amore e non di odio;

– di mantenere nei nostri fratelli cristiani di Mossul, insultati, perseguitati e uccisi, l’atteggiamento cristiano coraggioso che li caratterizza. “Padre, perdona loro perché non sanno quello che fanno” (Lc 23,34);

– Che i nostri fratelli cristiani nella regione di Ninive sopportino le loro prove con pazienza, certi che le forze del male non prevarranno, mentre la forza dell’amore è eterna e che dopo il Calvario della croce c’è sempre la redenzione liberatrice e l’alba della risurrezione.

MESSAGE AUX CHRÉTIENS d’IRAK

11 mars 2010

Béatitude Eminentissime,
Excellences,

A l’issue de notre réunion plénière du 8-10 mars 2010, qui a eu lieu sur le mont des Béatitudes à la présence de Son Excellence le Nonce Apostolique, Nous, Ordinaires Catholiques de Terre Sainte, nous voulons exprimer notre proximité fraternelle aux chères églises d’Irak, Pasteurs et fidèles, sans distinction, pendant ces temps d’épreuves. Cueillant le message du lieu saint qui nous accueille et en pensant à vous, les paroles de Jésus qui attirent davantage notre attention sont : « Heureux les affligés, car ils seront consolés… Heureux les persécutés pour la justice, car le Royaume des cieux est à eux », accompagnées de l’autre béatitude complémentaire, « Heureux les constructeurs de paix » (Mt. 5,5.10.9)

Nos fidèles de Jordanie, de Palestine et d’Israël pensent à vous, souffrent avec vous et prient pour vous. Vos frères, les chrétiens de Terre Sainte, unissent leurs voix pour crier « Ça suffit ! » et élèvent leurs intercessions pour dire « Seigneur, prend pitié ! ». La campagne de solidarité avec les chrétiens d’Irak et spécialement de Mossoul et de toute la région de Ninive lancée par Télélumière, Nour-Sat, le Web www.abouna.org, le Web www.lpj.org et d’autres Media sera aussi la nôtre.

 Avec le prophète Jonas nous nous tournons vers le « Dieu bienveillant et compatissant, patient et d’une immense bonté, toujours prêt à revenir sur ses menaces (Jo 4,2) pour implorer :

– de faire surgir de nouveaux sentiments et de nouvelles dispositions à la conversion tous ceux qui habitent  Mossoul, l’ancienne Ninive, et se convaincre que notre Dieu est un Dieu d’amour et non de haine ;

– d’entretenir en nos frères chrétiens de Mossoul, insultés, persécutés et tués, l’attitude chrétienne courageuse qui les caractérisent. « Père, pardonne leur, ils ne savent pas ce qu’ils font » (Lc. 23,34) ;

– que nos frères chrétiens de la région de Ninive endurent leurs épreuves avec patience, sûrs que les forces du mal ne prévaudront pas, tandis que la force de l’amour est éternelle et qu’après le Calvaire de la croix  il y a toujours la rédemption libératrice et l’aube de la résurrection.

MESSAGE OF THE ASSEMBLY OF THE ORDINARY OF HOLY LAND TO THE CHRISTIANS OF IRAQ

11th March 2010

Your Beatitude,
Your Excellencies,

After our Plenary meeting which took place on the Mount of the Beatitudes between March 8th and 10th, 2010 in the presence of His Excellency the Apostolic Nuncio, we, the Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land want to express our fraternal closeness to the beloved churches of Iraq, their pastors and faithful without distinction, in these trying times.

In choosing a message for you from this Holy Site where we are meeting that we would like to share with you the words of Jesus pronounced here that most strikingly call to us: “Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” These words are accompanied by another beatitude that compliments it: “Blessed are the peace-makers” (Mt 5:5, 10, 9).

Our faithful in Jordan, Palestine and Israel are thinking of you, suffer with you and pray for you.  You brothers and sisters, the Christians of the Holy Land, raise their voices and shout as one, “Enough!” And they lift up their hearts in intercessory prayer to say: “Lord, have mercy!”

We make our own the campaign of solidarity on behalf the Christians of Iraq, particularly those of the city of Mosul and through the region Nineveh that was launched by Télé Lumiere, Noursat, www.abouna.org, and www.lpj.org as well as other media.

Together with the prophet Jonah we turn to our “gracious and merciful God, slow to anger, rich in clemency, loathe to punish” (Jo 4:2) and we implore:

– May all the inhabitants of Mosul, the ancient Niniveh, be incited to new feelings and a new openness towards conversion, becoming convinced that our God is a God of love, and not hate;

– May our fellow Christians in Mosul, insulted, persecuted and facing lethal violence, be sustained in the courageous Christian attitude that characterizes them. “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34);

– May our Christian brothers in the region of Nineveh endure their trials with patience, confident that the forces of evil will not prevail, while the strength of love is eternal and that after the cross of Calvary there is always liberating redemption and the dawn of the resurrection.
