As every year, hundreds of faithful gathered on the last Sunday in October at the Marian Shrine of Deir Rafat, to celebrate the feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Palestine. Among the faithful, many groups came from Galilee and the Palestinian territories. The Patriarch took the opportunity to share the experience lived in Assisi with Pope Benedict XVI and other religious leaders.
