CCSM conveys well wishes on Easter and Ramadan

Fr. Dr. Rif'at Bader

The Catholic Center for Studies and Media (CCSM) in Jordan conveys well wishes to the extended Jordanian family on the occasion of Easter celebrations and the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.

CCSM Director Fr. Dr. Rif'at Bader said the almost coincidence of the two religious anniversaries confirms the closeness of the extended family, which is prevalent these days, as this has been the case all the time and is manifested in genuine expression of solidarity, brotherhood, and working hand-in-hand in order to keep at bay all evils afflicting the world, including our region, namely COVID-19.

Fr. Bader said that with regards to Easter celebrations, we have respected the directives issued by the authorities, so that the churches remained closed while a small number of bishops and priests prayed in some main churches, at a time when the prayers were live-streamed through television and social media outlets to the believers who were locked down and celebrated the feast in their homes among the extended family members.

He said that the CCSM, while marking its 8th anniversary this year, extends its sincere gratitude and appreciation to His Majesty King Abdullah II Ben Al-Hussein, the leader of the Jordanian progression towards development and the preservation of human's health, life and dignity. This is what we have witnessed over this period, which represents an enhancement of all Jordanian accomplishments abounding with the preservation of sacred human dignity and rights, notably the right to life, health, safe homes.

The CCSM highly appreciates the efforts exerted by the government by the prime minister, the Ministry of Health as well as the workers in the health care sectors who have been striving hand-in-hand to preserve human dignity, treat the infected people, and protect the citizens. The CCSM states, "The words expressing gratitude and appreciation to the security apparatuses and the Arab Army do not suffice for the strenuous efforts they are undertaking to protect human life. Easter represents a victory over evil, death and sin. During this period prayers were lifted up in various churches, albeit rather empty, with a large number of believers taking part in these prayers in their homes, imploring the Almighty God to eliminate the specter of this pandemic from the entire world and from the extended human family, as well from our beloved country where ties have been corroborated among the various citizens during this period. May the Almighty called God keep His Majesty the King in good health so as to continue to steer the Jordanian ship to the shore of safety and stability.

Father Bader also conveyed well wishes on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan, hoping that it will be a month of blessing and marking the end of the pandemic that has afflicted a large number of people. He also wished a speedy recovery of the infected, eternal rest to the souls of all the departed, and safety to all our students who are returning soon to their beloved homeland.

May God protect Jordan and the extended Jordanian family with its Christians and Muslims.
