Fr. Bader named official spokesperson of papal visit

Amman (Abouna)

Following is the text of the address by Fr. Rif’at Bader, director of the Catholic Center for Studies and Media and the official spokesperson of the upcoming papal visit to the Holy Land:

His Beatitude, Excellencies, dear colleagues,
This year is distinguished and it is conducive to consolidate dialogue, brotherhood and cooperation. These days, we mark the 50th anniversary of the visit of Pope Paul VI to the Holy Land, which started from Jordan, where he was received by His Majesty King Hussein, may his soul rest in peace, the East Catholic patriarchs, headed by Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem at the time Patriarch Alberto Gori.

Tomorrow, Monday, we will celebrate with the Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land, the launching of the new church built at the site of the Baptism Site, near the River Jordan.

On January 10, Catholic churches will celebrate pilgrimage to the Baptism Site, while Orthodox churches will mark the celebrations next week.

In the first week of February, the global week of harmony among religions will include several events. It is to be noted that Jordan is the side that took the initiative for this week while the United Nations adopted it unanimously.

On March 3, a memorial book will be launched. It marks the 50th anniversary of the visit of Pope Paul to the Holy Land and the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Holy See-Vatican and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on March 3, 1994.

On April 27, Pope John Paul II, who visited the Holy Land in 2000, will be proclaimed saint. Furthermore, this year is the 10th anniversary of the launching of the Amman Message.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue which was launched by Pope Paul VI after his visit to the Holy Land. The Council has a permanent office for dialogue with Muslims, headed by a Jordanian priest, Father Khalid Akasheh.

In the spirit of the papal visit of Pope Francis, I invite you to share with us at the Catholic Center for Studies and Media these events. We will announce soon, in coordination with the Media Department at the Royal Court registration details to cover Pope Francis’ visit to the Kingdom.

Please follow up the details on abouna.org site.

We welcome the guest of Abu Hussein, His Holiness Pope Francis.

Thank you for your cooperation.
