One more dream place to visit in my life. As a child I was always fascinated by the Old Testament stories in the Bible.
I used to listen with great interest these stories in the catechism classes. I loved reading them whenever I was free and would be amazed filled with awe and admiration to know how God has been great source of inspiration.
Jacobs’s twelve sons became ancestors, known as the twelve tribes of
Israel. Later on Moses led the
Israelites out of Egypt
from slavery to land flowing with milk and honey. Israel is also supposed to be the
birth place of the Hebrew language and today it’s a sacred place for major
religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
Israel is disturbed place, wherein
religion has become cause for social unrest, tension and all forms of violence prevailing
in this place. I pray for peace in this
land; and hope for a change, wherein
human lives become more important than religion.
Sending peace and harmony to all !!
