“Let us work together to replace despair with HOPE, fear with human SECURITY and humiliation with DIGNITY”

Fr. Patton: Holy Land is where Christians live in concrete unity.

The Custos of the Holy Land, Fr. Francesco Patton, describes the Pope’s audience with The Holy Land Review, and affirms that local Christians of various confessions seek to live in concrete unity.

“I would dare to say that the Holy Land is the place where Christian communities are closest to unity. I would say that in the Holy Land we speak less about the theory of ecumenism and instead practice unity much more.”

Fr. Francesco Patton, OFM, offered that assessment of life in the Land of Jesus at the start of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

The Franciscan Custos of the Holy Land was speaking in an interview with Vatican News’ Alessandro Di Bussolo on the heels of an audience with Pope Francis.
