Terra Santa News 19/12/2014
THIS WEEK ON TV: Messages for Christmas 2014 from the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Fouad Twal, and the Custos of the Holy Land, Pierbattista Pizzaballa, are at the heart this week’s edition of Terra Santa News, which also introduces its new name: the Christian Media Center. The Franciscan Media Center, the multimedia center of the Custody of the Holy Land, is in fact changing its name, to reaffirm its commitment as the information service of all of the churches in the Holy Land. A few days before Christmas, we tell you about the expectations in Bethlehem for the arrival of the pilgrims, with an analysis and projections by the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism. Then, we bring you the experience of 3000 Indian immigrants in Israel, who participated in the march from Jerusalem and Bethlehem, as a prayer for peace. We close with images from various cities in the Holy Land that in recent weeks were permeated with the spirit and the atmosphere of Christmas, in spite of differences in cultures and faiths.
