Holy Land church leaders recall Jesus was born amid military occupation

ROME – Christian leaders in the Holy Land have called for an end to the current war in Gaza in their annual Christmas message, saying that the commemoration of Jesus’s birth, which itself occurred under a military occupation, is a sign that hope is present even amid darkness.

In a Dec. 21 Christmas message, the patriarchs and heads of churches in Jerusalem conveyed their Christmas greetings to believers around the world “in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, born here in Bethlehem more than two thousand years ago.”
