We were many people from 32 countries for the meeting with Patriarch Pizzaballa and with some representatives of the local Church and of the pilgrims who come to the Holy Land and who we hope will return soon.
It was a very intense moment of universal fraternity, an opportunity to get to know at first hand the hopes and difficulties and also the complexity in which the Christians of the Mother Church of Jerusalem live, especially in this time of pandemic.
It was a first moment, others will follow!
