MECC: The territorial integrity of Syria must be safeguarded

Agenzia Fides
: The Middle East Council of Churches (MECC) has followed with deep sorrow and pain the martyrdom and wounding of hundreds of Iraqis last week, and is currently following with greater pain the Turkish attacks on northeastern Syria, which would potentially have "serious repercussions on its territorial integrity", and thus exacerbate the humanitarian situation of refugees and displaced persons. Therefore, the MECC prays for the "end of all forms of violence and for the protection of human dignity which is the pillar of any peace or stability, while affirming the right of peoples to self-determination, in line with Arab and international instruments, and upon values of love, justice, human rights and common responsibility in peace-building". The MECC calls upon the consciences of...

: Following is the meditation of Most Rev. Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, for the 29th Sunday of Ordinary Time, year C, October 20, 2019: In the Gospel account of Luke, the theme of prayer frequently occurs, whether it refers to Jesus withdrawing to pray, to His disciples who ask Jesus to teach them to pray, or to when He invites them to pray. Two parables, in a special way, refer to prayer: one which we have heard today, and the other that’s found in Chapter 11 (Lk 11:5-8). A type of paradox occurs in both: in Luke 11 we find a man who, on seeing his friend come to his home at night, has no food to offer him. He therefore asks another friend insistently for something to eat. The latter, won over more by the insistence of...
