The feast of the Virgin Mary’s Nativity opens the news from the Holy Land this week, with the images of the Mass at the Basilica of St. Anne in Jerusalem, the place where we remember the birth of the Virgin Mary. The life of the Church and of the Holy Land is at the heart of another report, with an interview with Melkite Bishop of Galilee, George Bacouni, who tells us about his plans for the diocese.
