Dear Brothers and Sisters,
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14).
Our work this year remains formidable, and it is important for us to stay united in Christ’s mission to care for the poor and the vulnerable, those who are forced to the margins of society, and those whose voices are silenced by louder, stronger voices. When we lessen another person’s burdens, we are the face of God to the one who is suffering, and we know Christ calls us to be the presence of God to those in need whether it is spiritual, emotional, physical, or financial support.

Our Christian brothers and sisters in the Holy Land continue to suffer in many ways that are often too painful to recall. This year they need support of food and medical supplies during the worldwide economic crisis. They need to find meaningful jobs at just wages that allow them to work for a brighter future as they rebuild Palestine according to their dreams and visions. We feel their political and economic vulnerabilities, and our prayers for them rise to the heavens because we are at the limits of human powerlessness. Donate here
We are all God’s children, and when one of us hurts, we all hurt. Jesus Christ teaches us to depend upon God for all things and to trust in God’s work through humanity that builds bridges of solidarity for victims of injustice. Palestinian Christians continue to face distress on many levels, and many do not see a political resolution to their situation soon.
In the face of enormous adversity, we may feel overwhelmed, and yet we know that hearts are changed one at a time. I appeal to you to be the face of God for our suffering friends by making a generous contribution to HCEF on their behalf. We can do our small part, and we will know that we made someone’s day a little brighter. This is what it takes to rekindle hope for one who is on the verge of losing it. Your generosity may alleviate one’s sense of desperation as someone learns that you care about their plight and want to lessen their suffering and to give them the promise of hope. Donate here
Your tax-deductible support in the amount of $25, $50, 100, $125, $250, $500, $1000, or whatever you can afford yields life-changing results.
“Let us work together to replace despair with HOPE,
fear with HUMAN SECURITY, and humiliation with DIGNITY”.
Christ was born to us so that we know that God understands human suffering and that God dreams of a more loving world for us
God bless you, and Merry Christmas
