Holy Land Volunteers’ day

Saturday 19th October 2013

Last saturday we were invited to the meeting in the 6th Holy Land Volunteers’ day which was held in Rome in the Antonianum University. It was a very rich program: in the morning father Alessandro Coniglio, from the Custody of the Holy Land, talked about “How to live the faith in the Holy Land”; at 11.45 a.m. Gabriele Allevi introduced us to the project “Terra Sancta Museum” which aims to built a new area of three museums in Jerusalem. In the afternoon a very special moment was the testimony of the emeritus bishop from Aleppo, Mons. Giuseppe Nazzaro, who explained us the situation in Syria. At 4.30 p.m. father Pizzaballa, Custos of the Holy Land, met all the volunteers to answer all their questions about problems; he also listened willingly all their proposals and different points of view. The day ended with the celebration of the holy Mass with all the invited people.
