Kairos Palestine

Extraordinary day yesterday, with the Cultural Initiative of the STS: “Theological Discussion on Kairos Palestine: A word of faith, hope and love from the heart of Palestinian suffering.” The participants in the Panel were H.B. Michel Sabbah, former Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Fr Rafiq Khoury, and Fr PierGiorgio Gianazza. Fr Rafiq presented the context of the Kairos Palestine document, H.B. the contents, and Fr Gianazza some theological insight and comments. H.B. was extraordinary in his simplicity, lucidity and penetration, and above all in his deeply Christian invitation to be salt of the earth, to live as engaged disciples of Jesus in the Holy Land, without excessive fear of suffering. It was liberation theology at its best. And it was, according to H.B., the very first time that any Catholic institution had requested a session on the document in question.
