God’s dream for Gaza, Palestine and Israel

God’s dream for Gaza, Palestine and Israel

By Fr. Bernard Holzer, aa


The first reading of the Mass last Monday is taken from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah (65:19-21). It’s God’s dream for Jerusalem, it’s God’s dream today for Gaza, Palestine and Israël.


“No longer shall the sound of weeping be heard there,

or the sound of crying;

No longer shall there be in it

an infant who lives but a few days,

nor anyone who does not live a full lifetime.

They shall build houses and live in them,

they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.”


Let us beseech the Lord for his dream to come true.

Let us commit ourselves, according to our possibilities, to building peace within ourselves and around us. Above all, let us not be indifferent and silent!

May the Lord bless us: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” (Matthew 5:9)
