Galilee Jewish-Christian prayer & tree-planting ceremony video

(Terra Sancta Blog)  With all of the bad news about conflict in the Middle East and beyond, it’s nice to hear some good news.  Christian and Jewish pilgrims, making a joint pilgrimage, planted trees in honor of Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini who was an advocate of Christian-Jewish relations and who tried to inspire a great love for the Holy Land.  He was also instrumental in promoting to Catholics a greater understanding of our Jewish heritage.  Both Jews and Christians prayed at the tree-planting ceremony.  The forest that will be developing is officially named in Cardinal Martini’s honor.  Click here to watch the video.
