Archbishop Lahham recalls Mother Teresa's visit to the Holy land

Amman-The Catholic Center for Studies and Media

Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan Archbishop Maroun Lahham has provided en.abouna.org site with a photo that dates back to November 8, 1982. The photo documents a visit by Mother Teresa (saint) to the Holy Land, which included a visit to the Latin Patriarchate-affiliated seminary in Beit Jala.

In a statement to en.abouna.org site, Archbishop Lahham said: “I do not recall the reason that made me visit Jerusalem and Beit Jala as I had been at the time the Latin parish priest in Madaba, Jordan. When I shook hands with Mother Teresa, I did not realize at the time that I had shaken the hand of a saint. I do experience nowadays the grace of her canonization which concerns the entire humanity.”

Archbishop Lahham, who presided in Amman in March 2016 the requiem Mass of the four brutally murdered nuns in Yemen, who belong to Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity said: “I pray to the Lord asking Him, through the intercession of Mother Teresa, to grant our world, which is burdened with pain and blood, peace and tranquility so that humanity would sincerely worship God, love one another, and respect human dignity particularly the poor and the sick exactly as Mother Theresa used to do.
