Article from Zenit.org - NEW UNIVERSITY IN ISRAEL TO PROMOTE RELIGIOUS PEACE

JERUSALEM, SEPT. 4, 2003 (Zenit.org).- A university dedicated to improving Arab-Israeli relations is scheduled to open soon, offering a glimmer of hope in the troubled Mideast.

The Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need reported that when it opens in October, the Mar Elias University will become the first-ever Christian, Arab and Israeli university in the Middle East.

An initiative of the Melkite Catholics, the university will meet a vital need for a serious academic environment where Arab Palestinian Christians, Moslems, Druzes and Jewish Israelis will have the opportunity to study, plan and search together for a common future. International students will also be welcomed.

Father Elias Shakour, a Catholic priest who promotes better ecumenical relations in the Mideast, passed on the news of the school to the charity.

Official accreditation has been granted by the Council of Higher Education of the Israeli Ministry of Education. Courses will be offered primarily in English, with some courses offered in Arabic and Hebrew.

The provisional campus is in Ibillin, in the Galilee, where the Melkites already have an educational complex.

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.
