Our Lady of the Holy Valley Choir: Jordan is blessed by Lord Jesus' baptism

By Munir Bayouk-en.abouna.org

The Our Lady of the Holy Valley Choir, coming from the Syrian Governorate of Homs, held a hymn eve at Mar Elias, Ajloun Governorate, on Tuesday, August 13, as part of its tour in the Kingdom, organized by the Catholic Center for Studies and Media (CCSM) and the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities.

After playing the national anthem, CCSM Director Fr. Dr. Rif'at Bader conveyed well wishes to His Majesty King Abdullah II and the extended Jordanian family on the advent of Eid al-Adha. He also expressed pleasure for holding the first hymn eve at this important site of religious tourism.

He pointed out that this eve is a sincere prayer for Jordan and fraternal Syria, as well as peace in the Middle Eastern countries. He thanked all the parties that helped make this eve come into reality such as the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the Jordan Tourism Board, Ajloun Governorate, the Department of Tourism and Antiquities in Ajloun, all national institutions, and security departments.

A young lady delivered an address on behalf of Our Lady of the Holy Valley Choir in which she said that: "The Bible testifies that the land of Jordan draws man closer to the Almighty God. This land has been blessed by Lord Jesus Christ's baptism and the resounding voice of John the Baptist, who said, 'Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world'.''

She stressed that the hymns, whose lyrics and hymns, produced by members of the choir, "are our response and weapons in the face of cruel and unjust war that left no room for peace in our homeland."

She added, "Jordan's waters have been blessed by the baptism of Lord Jesus. As for Syria, the river of blood does not stop flowing, where this needs someone who can stop it by performing a miracle similar to that of the Prophet Elijah."

The eve included Byzantine chants for the Prophet Elijah for peace, love and steadfastness in the homeland.

The eve was attended by Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan Bishop William Shomali, Bishop Elias Toumeh, priests and nuns, as well as a large number of people from various parts of Jordan.

On the third day its visit to Jordan, Our Lady of the Holy Valley Choir visited Jerash, Our Lady of the Mount on the heights of Anjara, Ajloun Castle which preceded the hymn eve held at Mar Elias in Ajloun Governorate.
