Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos among Heads of Churches of Jerusalem to meet with Holy City’s mayor

The Patriarch of Jerusalem, His Beatitude Theophilos III, was among the Heads of Churches of Jerusalem who met with the City’s mayor, Moses Leon, at the Catholic Monastery of the Franciscans.

In addressing the meeting and the mayor, His Beatitude noted, among others, stressed that “…As you are well aware, this unique identity of Jerusalem and its universal vocation are the serious peril from Israeli radical groups whose actions threaten the very fabric and foundation of this Holy City.

So egregious is their activity, that it is catching the attention of religious and governmental leaders around the world, who recognise the dangers of such groups, and we cannot but express our deep concern to you.

The Churches are willing to work together with you for the common benefit and common good of all our people, but this work must rest upon mutual respect and the security of the historic rights and privileges of the communities that make up our society.”
