Sacred Heart of Jesus celebration welcomed by Bethlehem Salesians


Situazione in Israele e zone limitrofe...

Sullo stesso sito abbiamo anche scovato un appello firmato dai Capi delle Chiese in Terra Santa riguardo i progetti israeliani di annessione senza biglietto di ritorno.
Documento importante, con parole importanti, frasi che dovrebbero far riflettere tutti coloro che sono attorno al tavolo delle discussioni, anche senza la gran parte dei partecipanti palestinesi.
Vi ho inserito il link qui appena dopo queste righe, da leggere e da commentare, il territorio palestinese si sta rimpicciolendo sempre di più e nessuno dei famosi capi di stato “moderni” sembra dare alcuna importanza in merito.

Pronunciamento dei Patriarchi e dei Capi delle Chiese di Terra Santa

Carissimo Diego e carissimi tutti, venerdì scorso, 19/06/2020, a Betlemme i salesiani hanno organizzato la processione del Corpus Domini, naturalmente rispettando le misure di sicurezza richieste dal COVID-19.
Sul sito ufficiale del Patriarcato Latino di Gerusalemme lpj.org se ne dà ampia relazione illustrata con molte foto tra cui compaiono don Lorenzo Saggiotto, direttore della Scuola Tecnica, e don Pier Giorgio Gianazza, la banda strumentale, l’interno della nostra chiesa del S.Cuore …
Questa processione conserva ancora il privilegio unico concesso alla fine del XIX secolo sia dalla S.Sede sia dal Governo Turco Ottomano, di svolgersi all’aperto per le vie della città, e non all’interno del cortile o “sagrato” della chiesa, come per tutte le altre parrocchie in Medio Oriente. Privilegio concesso a don Antonio BELLONI (+1903) per la sua straordinaria carità verso gli orfani (veniva chiamato Abù-l-Yatàma = padre degli orfani) e a i Salesiani che continuano la sua opera.

Sacred Heart of Jesus celebration welcomed by Bethlehem Salesians

BETHLEHEM – On the mid-afternoon of Friday, June 19, 2020, the faithful of Bethlehem gathered in the Salesian Church of the Holy City to celebrate the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, the Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, presided over the Holy Mass followed by a procession through the Old City.

The Bethlehem faithful gathered in large numbers in the Salesian Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to attend the Mass presided over by Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa.

Bishop Giacinto-Boulos Marcuzzo, Vicar of the Latin Patriarchate for Jerusalem and Palestine, Mass concelebrated with Father Lorenzo Saggiotto, Superior of the Church, Father Yacoub Rafidi, Rector of the Seminary of the Latin Patriarchate, Father Emad Kamel OFM, Father Rami Asakrieh, OFM, parish priest of Bethlehem, Father Ibrahim Shomali, chancellor of the Latin Patriarchate, Deacon Firas Abedrabbo, private secretary of the Apostolic Administrator and other priests of the diocese and Salesian brothers. A small Salesian choir animated the Eucharistic celebration with accompanying instruments and liturgical songs.

All the people present at the Mass gathered in front of the Church to begin a procession towards the Church of Saint Catherine. Led by Archbishop Pizzaballa, the priests, deacons, nuns, seminarians and faithful crossed the entire Old City, to the rhythm of the Salesian scouts’ band from Bethlehem and the praying of the evangelical greeting, “Ave Maria.” finally arriving at the Church. After praying for several minutes in the Chapel, the procession resumed in the opposite direction to the Salesian Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Established by Pope Clement XIII in 1765 and extended to the whole Roman Catholic Church by Pope Pius IX in 1856, the Solemnity of Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated every year on the third Friday after Pentecost. During this feast, the Church contemplates the heart of her Savior and lets herself be guided by it in the depths of the mystery of love in which man and God meet.

The growth of this devotion in the Roman Catholic Church from the 17th century derives from the revelations to a Catholic Visitation nun from the Paray-le-Monial Convent in Burgundy, Margaret-Mary Alacoque, who claimed to have received them from Christ Himself during several apparitions between 1673 and 1675.

During her first apparition, Jesus reveals to her His passionate love for humankind and chooses her to spread “the flames of his ardent charity.” The great apparition of June 1675 will see Jesus addressing her in these terms: “This is the Heart that loved men so much until it was exhausted and consumed, to show them His love.” The Lord subsequently would ask her for a special feast be instituted on the Friday following the Octave of Corpus Christi, to honor His Heart and to repair, with the Eucharist, the outrages that He has received, and finally, promise abundant thanks to those who will give Him this honor.

Today, devotion to the Sacred Heart is an opportunity to reconsider the gifts of tenderness, love, and human relationships that add meaning to life.
