A DELEGATION OF BRITISH MUSLIM LEADERS VISITS THE PATRIARCHATE
His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos III was pleased to welcome a delegation of British Muslim leaders to the Patriarchate on 6 April 2019. The delegation was on a fact finding mission to the Holy Land, exploring opportunities for peace and reconciliation.
The delegation discussed the role of the Churches in the Holy Land, as a force for peace and reconciliation that has been present for nearly 2,000 years. They also discussed the shared heritage of Christians, Jews and Muslims, and how it is venerated together in the holy city of Jerusalem: a city that is made holy not by history, but in the constant prayer that surrounds it.
