“WHEN YOU HAVE TWO PEOPLE IN CONFLICT WHOSE SENSE OF JUSTICE IS GETTING EVEN, OR TAKING ADVANTAGE, WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO END UP? JUST MORE OF THE SAME. SO IN MY MIND, ANYWAY, THE PRESENCE OF THE CHRISTIANS IN THE HOLY LAND IS AN ESSENTIAL PIECE TO ANY KIND OF LASTING SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS OVER THERE. ANYTHING THAT MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR CHRISTIANS TO LIVE AND TO STAY IN THE HOLY LAND, IN THE MIDDLE EAST, IS A CONTRIBUTION TO HUMANITY, BECAUSE ITS A CONTRIBUTION TO A PRESENCE THAT REPRESENTS A WAY OF SOLVING A PROBLEM.”
– Msgr. Frank Lane, Mt. St. Michael’s Seminary, Cincinnati, Ohio
Cradling Christianity is a not for profit organization with no political affiliation. We assist the Franciscan Foundation to the Holy Land to help the marginalized Christians in the Holy Land by providing education opportunities, housing, and employment. All funds raised go directly to the Franciscan Foundation to the Holy Land. The Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization.
