So sad, so very, very sad...

"Monks brawl at Christian Holy Site in Jerusalem"

This is not the first time something like this has happened, and it probably won't be the last.

"For the peace of the whole world, for the welfare of the holy Churches of God, and for the union of all, let us pray to the Lord."
Kyrie Eleison -
Great litany, Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

Some of this is instigated by the Israelis. While there have been problems (and historically have been problems)--there is not a cooperative government.

Still, a bad example of peace among men.

You may have a point, Jamal, although this stuff long predates the State of Israel. It has been going on for centuries and has included Roman Catholics as well.

Very sad when tempers and loyalties clash so as to destroy the Christian witness.

The keys to this church are kept by a Moslem, Jamal.
