Mass celebrated for late Fr. Hijazeen

Amman-The Catholic Center for Studies and Media

Patriarch Emeritus of Jerusalem Fouad Twal on Monday, August 8, presided Mass for Fr. Faysal Hijazeen marking the third day of his passing away. The Mass was co-celebrated by Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan Archbishop Maroun Lahham and Bishop Salim Sayegh. Present at the Mass were a number of priests from Jerusalem and Palestine as well as relatives from the tribes of Hijazeen and Akasheh.

In his homily, Patriarch Twal said: “O Fr. Faysal, in your lifetime you were the brilliant teacher as you were responsible for our schools in the Galilee and Jerusalem. In your death and in your silence, we have learned anew that that life is futile at a time when people strive to acquire titles and leaderships.

He added: “Your untimely death is painful and saddening. Your departure abounds with hope for meeting Lord Jesus Christ whom you have served for over 30 years. Lord Jesus is awaiting you to join the other priests who had already left us. We do await that you continue your mission in the Kingdom of God by praying for us, praying for the seminary were you had worked, and pray for the Patriarchate.”
