Catholic Connection – June 1, 2015 – Hour 2

+  Intro and News

+  Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land

  • Description: "Christians throughout the Holy Land face ongoing discrimination and often find themselves caught in the middle of tensions between fundamentalists of all kinds. The result is that more than 300 Christian families leave the Holy Land each year. “That number used to be a lot higher,” said Fr. Peter Vasko, ofm, President of the FFHL. “I can remember a time when more than 500 Christian families were leaving the Holy Land each year. That’s why we founded the FFHL. We wanted to stem the tide of Christians leaving the Holy Land by giving them reasons to stay.” The new website gives easy-to-find descriptions of the fourteen programs being funded by the FFHL and provides videos of Christians telling their own stories about how the Franciscans have made a life-changing difference in their lives."
