Advent 4 – Compassion – Mary's song, the Magnificat, is a song of oppressed people longing to be liberated. In Bethlehem, as in other parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territories, there is continuous oppression of ordinary people by Israeli officials and military. But at checkpoints, demolition sites and ruined family farms there are volunteers, be they Christian, Muslim or Israeli, standing in solidarity with the oppressed. We are called to be the embodiment of Christ, to move into the neighbourhood to engender hope, peace, justice and compassion.
Luke 1: 46b - 55
