We the Sisters of Sion from Ecce Homo invited the community of Chemin Neuf,our volunteers and a few seminarians from the White Fathers to join us in a sing-a-long to prepare for Christmas. 20 people representing 12 nations coming from Brazil, Canada, France, Martinique, Kenya, Congo, Italy, USA, Scotland, Lebanon, Slovakia and Australia, gathered in the warmth of St Mary’s apartment in Ecce Homo to sing Advent and Christmas songs together and to drink the traditional mulled wine. It was a delight to be together, to enjoy the laughter, the talent and to rejoice in the richness and the differences of language and customs, encouraging each other, as we prepare to celebrate Christmas in the Holy Land.
Rejoice before the Lord; for he is coming, for he is coming to judge the earth…and the peoples with his truth. Psalm: 96.
