  Holy Land Pilgrimage for Peace

    Today (Tuesday) we met with Palestinian leaders to hear the plight of the Palestinian people who lost 78% of their land in 1948 and see themselves living in their homeland occupied by Israel.
   

Bishop Blaire attends meeting (after the First Supper in Jerusalem for the Peace Pilgrimage) to be briefed on the schedule of prayer gatherings and meetings with religious, government and community leaders in Israel and Palestine.

We prayed for all victims of violence throughout the world. We prayed for Jerusalem the city of peace which is not at peace. A way must be found for a two state solution (Palestine and Israel) if there is to be peace.

Wonderful flight over. Arrived at 4:45 pm this afternoon. After dinner we had a briefing meeting. We are ten hours ahead of California time, so our day is close to finished. More tomorrow…
