“Christians in Gaza, all one family”: the words of the pastor of Gaza

Anyone who has experienced war knows what it is like after a war. At this time, all of us must be strong and start over. I am not only talking about Gaza but both parties who took part in this war, includng Israel. Because nobody wins in a war, everyone must pay the consequences of war in their own way”. Who is speaking is father Jorge Hernandez, pastor of the Latin parish of Gaza, which Association pro Terra Sancta  has supported during this humanitarian crisis and continues to support with the help of many friends.

During the long and complex period of reconstruction, we must rediscover—as requested by the Pope—the deeper sense of the Christian presence in a land that is so troubled.

We have to continue to support the Christians and all the people who rely on the parish of Gaza that, at this time, are in great need. These people lost their families, their possession and , often, their homes: we can’t let them feel deprived of hope too.
