In the Jubilee Year of Mercy, many couples met on the Mount of Beatitudes to talk about mercy within the family.
In Galilee, a meeting brought together several couples to discuss mercy within the family. The event was sponsored by the Regional Commission for the families of the Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land, made up of members of the Latin, the Maronite and the Melkite Churches.
The meeting was held in the place where Jesus delivered the speech of the Beatitudes. There, Jesus spoke of mercy in terms of a path to happiness. The theme of the day, dedicated to the family, was introduced by the Parish Priest of the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth.
