Die Versammlung besprach folgende Themen:

1– In Bezug auf die Angelegenheit der syrischen und irakischen Flüchtlinge betonten die Bischöfe deren dramatische Situation und deren Wunsch, den Nahen Osten zu verlassen, um in anderen Ländern mehr Sicherheit und Würde zu finden. Sie erinnerten an die Berufung und Aufgabe aller Christen, besonders jener des Heiligen Landes, trotz der gegenwärtigen Herausforderungen in ihrem Land zu bleiben.

2– Die jungen Menschen des Heiligen Landes werden am Weltjugendtag (WYD) in Panama teilnehmen. Die Bischöfe betonten die Notwendigkeit einer guten Vorbereitung der jungen Leute, die an diesen Tagen teilnehmen werden. Zwei Bischöfe des Heiligen Landes, Erzbischof George Bacouni und Bischof William Shomali, werden an der Bischofssynode zum Thema „Die Jugendlichen, der Glaube und die Berufungsentscheidung“ teilnehmen.

3– Pater Rafic Nahra, Koordinator der Seelsorge für Migranten in Israel, kündigte an, dass es bald eine eigene Pfarre für Migranten geben werde und dass die derzeitige Struktur ab dem 20. Mai zu einem Vikariat für Migranten aufgewertet werden solle. Die Versammlung forderte die Gläubigen des Heiligen Landes dringend auf, mehr Migranten in ihren Pfarren aufzunehmen und zu integrieren.

4– Pater George Kraj erläuterte das Kapitel 8 des Apostolischen Schreibens „Amoris Laetitia“ und besprach den Fall von Paaren in Schwierigkeiten, die Versöhnung und Kommunion suchen.

5– Laudato Si: Pater Kustos Francesco Patton stellte die Enzyklika „Laudato Si“ von Papst Franziskus vor, die der Umwelt gewidmet ist und über „unser gemeinsames Haus“ nachdenkt. Der Heilige Vater schätzt das Thema der ökologischen Umkehr und der Reflexion über die Lebensstile der Menschheit.

6– Pilgerreisen ins Heilige Land: Pater Patton berichtete, dass die Besucherzahlen der Pilger an den Heiligen Stätten 2017 im Vergleich zu 2016 gestiegen sind und dass die Vorschau auf 2018 noch positiver ist, weil sich die Zahl verdreifachen könnte. Offizielle Statistiken sprechen von 3,5 Millionen Besuchern im Heiligen Land, unter ihnen mehr als die Hälfte christliche Pilger. Die Versammlung ermutigt diese Pilger, lokale christliche Gemeinden zu treffen.

L’Assemblea ha affrontato i seguenti argomenti:

1- I vescovi, citando la questione dei rifugiati siriani e iracheni, hanno constatato la loro situazione e il loro desiderio di lasciare il Medio Oriente verso altri paesi al fine di trovare più sicurezza e dignità. Essi hanno ricordato la vocazione e la missione di tutti i cristiani, specialmente di quelli in Terra Santa, di rimanere nella loro terra, nonostante le sfide attuali.

2- I giovani di Terra Santa parteciperanno alla GMG di Panama. I vescovi richiamano l’attenzione sulla necessità di una buona e previa preparazione dei giovani che vi parteciperanno. Due vescovi di Terra Santa, mons. George Bacouni e mons. William Shomali, parteciperanno al Sinodo dei Vescovi sul tema «I giovani, la fede e il discernimento vocazionale».

3 – Migranti in Israele. Padre Rafic Nahra, coordinatore della pastorale dei migranti in Israele, ha annunciato che ci sarà presto una parrocchia proprio per i migranti e che l’attuale struttura diventerà un vicariato per i migranti dal 20 maggio prossimo. L’Assemblea ha voluto esortare i fedeli di Terra Santa ad accogliere ed integrare più migranti nelle loro parrocchie.

4 – Padre George Kraj, spiegando il capitolo 8 dell’Esortazione apostolica «Amoris Laetitia»ha parlato del caso di coppie in difficoltà che cercano la riconciliazione e la comunione.

5- La Laudato sì. Il Custode Francesco Patton ha presentato l’Enciclica “Laudato Sì” di papa Francesco, dedicata all’ambiente, che opera una riflessione sulla «nostra casa comune». Il Santo Padre apprezza il tema della conversione ecologica e della riflessione sugli stili di vita dell’umanità.

6 – Pellegrinaggi in Terra Santa. Padre Patton ha annunciato che il numero di pellegrini ai santuari è aumentato nel 2017 rispetto al 2016 e le previsioni per il 2018 sono ancor più positive, con l’attesa di triplicare i numeri. Le statistiche ufficiali parlano di tre milioni e mezzo di visitatori in Terra Santa, tra i quali oltre la metà sono pellegrini cristiani. L’Assemblea incoraggia questi pellegrini a incontrare le comunità cristiane locali.

I membri di A.O.C.T.S. hanno visitato l’Arcivescovo della Chiesa di Cipro. Dopo aver incontrato l’unione di persone consacrate da Cipro, hanno incontrato anche leader religiosi locali, cristiani e musulmani.

The gathering of the members of the assembly was organized jointly by the Maronite Archbishop of Cyprus Msgr. Youssef Soueif and by the Patriarchal Vicar in Cyprus Father George Kraj.

The Assembly addressed the following topics:

1- The Bishops, referring to the issue of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, noted their dramatic situation and their desire to leave the Middle East for other countries to find more security and dignity. They recalled the vocation and mission of all Christians, especially those of the Holy Land, to remain in their land despite the current challenges.

Greek Melkite Catholic Patriarchate of Jerusalem

Greek Melkite Catholic Patriarchate of Jerusalem

.

The Greek Melkite Catholic Church in the Holy Land shares a common history with the Greek Orthodox Church.  This common history lasted until 1724 when the hierarchy was split in two in the three Melkite Patriarchates of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem.  Since that date, there have been parallel lines of Orthodox and Catholic Patriarchs, which explains why the Melkite Church is in full communion with the Church of Rome and, at the same time, deeply rooted in the Eastern tradition.

In 1772, the Greek Melkite Catholics of Jerusalem asked Patriarch Theodosius V Dahan of Antioch to come under his jurisdiction.  Pope Clement XIV responded favorably to their request.  Since 1938, the Greek Melkite Catholic Patriarch of Antioch carries the personal title of Alexandria and Jerusalem.

Syro-Catholic Patriarchal Exarchate of Jerusalem

.

In conformity with a decision made by the early Church, Jerusalem kept its status within the Syrian Church of Antioch as one of the vicariates of the Patriarchal See of Antioch. The Syrian Church, which united to Rome in 1659, established the Vicariate of Jerusalem in 1890. By a firman dated May 6, 1845, Ottoman Sultan Abdel Majid recognized the civil rights of the Syrian Catholic Patriarchate of Antioch in Jerusalem and in the Holy Land and exempted it from all taxes and customs.

The residence of the Exarchate shared the vicissitudes of the wars and revolutions that took place between 1900 and 1973.  It was successively transferred in 1948 from Damascus Gate in Jerusalem to Bethlehem and in 1965 from Bethlehem back to Jerusalem, to the present House of Abraham (Maison d’Abraham) at Ras El Amud – Silwan. In 1973, it purchased a property and settled definitively at 6 Chaldean Street.  In 1986 the church of Saint Thomas was built along with other facilities that include the Saint Thomas Center for Pilgrims and a Youth Center.
