Good wishes to the fraternal Greek Catholic Church

The Catholic Center for Studies and Media in Jordan

The Catholic Center for Studies and Media (CCSM) in Jordan joyfully conveys its sincere wishes to His Beatitude Patriarch Joseph Absi for his election as new patriarch of the fraternal Greek Catholic Church.

CCSM Director Fr. Rif’at Bader recalls the unstinting efforts carried out by his beatitude the patriarch--in his capacity as part of the Catholic family in the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC)--where at the time when he was the representative of the Greek Catholic Church, he showed wisdom, sagacity and gave right opinions designed to surmount the crises which the MECC encountered in the past decade.

The CCSM is confident that the spiritual, the broad-based liturgical sense, and the humility of the patriarch will enable him-while relying on the grace of the Lord--to guide his Church with skill, wisdom and love. His Beatitude the patriarch will share the suffering of his people will consolidate the unity of his Church in full partnership with the successor of St. Peter, His Holiness the Pope, as well as will maintain firm relations with the sister Churches and with all shades of Arab societies in support of human dignity, justice and peace.

Your Beatitude, the patriarch, we convey to you our best wishes. May the Lord give you the potential to skillfully guide this dear Church.
