Arabs and Jews Undertake Pilgrimage of Reconciliation to Auschwitz Interview with Father Shoufani of Nazareth, Organizer of the Initiative ZENIT - The World Seen From Rome, Code: ZE03052620, Date: 2003-05-26

JERUSALEM, FEB. 5, 2003 (Zenit.org).- It was big news in Israel: Father Emile Shoufani, an ethnic Palestinian of Israeli nationality, is organizing a pilgrimage "of knowledge and understanding" to Auschwitz.

The Greek-Melkite rite priest, director of St. Joseph's School in Nazareth, made his proposal for 150 Christian Arabs, 150 Jews and 150 Muslim Arabs.

If he cannot find enough Muslim Arab pilgrims, Father Shoufani will invite 150 Muslims of France, where he is well known, in part for his book "Le Curé de Nazareth" ("The Parish Priest of Nazareth").

In statements published today in the Italian newspaper Avvenire, Father Shoufani said that with "the Palestinian intifada, almost a total break has been created between the Israeli and Arab peoples. It is necessary to break the cycle of violence and hatred, and to rebuild a climate of trust."

Explaining why he decided on the pilgrimage to the site of the Nazi death camp in Poland, he said: "I think that such a step could help. It is a trip to get to know a place in which the Jewish people lived a reality that has not been understood, and on which many of their reactions today depend."

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
