BENEDICT XVI AND THE HOLY LAND
Let us recall some stages of his pilgrimage to the Holy Land
God of all the ages, on my visit to Jerusalem, the “City of Peace”, spiritual home to Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, I bring before you the joys, the hopes and the aspirations, the trials, the suffering and the pain of all your people throughout the world.
(Benedict XVI, prayer at the Western Wall in Jerusalem)
IN MEMORY OF BENEDICT XVI
Let us remember Benedict XVI together
Pro Terra Sancta proposes a fundraiser in memory of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to be allocated to the Convent of the Flagellation in Jerusalem, where Christian tradition places two moments of the passion of Jesus: the flagellation and the condemnation to death. In addition to the two sanctuaries, the Terra Sancta Museum and the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum are annexed to this complex, fundamental places for the study of archeology, history and the Holy Scriptures.
It is a concrete action to remember him and carry out his mandate through the custody of the place, the historical and physical memory of Jesus’ life on earth ant to help priests and students from all over the world, who study the Sacred Scriptures at the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum. These scholars are the “living stones” who will go on the streets of the world to teach, deepen and spread the “living word” of the Holy Scriptures.
Here’s what we’d like to do:
PRESERVING THE HISTORICAL AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL HERITAGE
The place of the Flagellation of Jesus
Support for priests and students of the SBF
DONATION IN MEMORY OF BENEDICT XVI
We remember his mandate in the Holy Land
Take part in the fundraiser in memory of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to be allocated to the Convent of the Flagellation in Jerusalem!
