From Fr. Bill – 19/20 SEPTEMBER 2020

 

The good news this week is Regional Victoria opening up a little and Metropolitan Melbourne seeing its 14-day average of new Covid-19 cases drop below the magic number of 50 for the first time since June. The numbers this week have given us hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

 

We all have our own list of things that we have missed during this shutdown but this weekend marks a particular disappointment for our Parish Pilgrimage Group who should have been celebrating their first weekend in the Holy Land. Our pilgrims’ disappointment is, of course, of little account when compared with the suffering of those at the other end of the pilgrimage story. The individual and family businesses in Jordan, Palestine and Israel who have not seen a pilgrim or tourist since March together with the plight of all who are involved in the travel and tourism industries.

 

Our cancelled pilgrimage coincides with new so called peace deals between Israel, Bahrain and the UAE. Hardly a peace deal as Bahrain and the UAE have never been at war with Israel. The reality is it’s an arms deal between the USA and the UAE, a consolidation of American military bases in Bahrain and the UAE and political and electoral opportunism for Trump and Netanyahu. The Palestinians have been completely written out of the story and the Christian and Muslim communities of Palestine have again been betrayed by both the West and their Arab neighbours as the illegal occupation of Palestine continues. We continue our prayers for a just peace and in particular, we pray for those Palestinian Christian communities and families we were planning to visit as a part of our pilgrimage.
