This issue of our magazine, which has taken the title Jerusalem Cross, referring to the banner that we carry, recounts the year 2016 which saw an exceptional increase in donations from our members for the benefit of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, confirming the trend of previous years. The visits of the Grand Master, Cardinal Edwin O’Brien, to the Lieutenancies around the world have contributed to this success: the number of members of the Order is increasing and our community life is growing spiritually. Our awareness of having to assist the new Apostolic Administrator of the Patriarchate, Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, in his office further promotes our mobilization in favor of the many pastoral projects (schools, parishes, reception of refugees ...) in these difficult times for Christians living in the biblical territories. In the magazine we will discuss the important moments since the beginning of Msgr. Pizzaballa’s ministry, and hear from him first hand in order to know him better. We will also retrace the Holy Year of Mercy, not only in the Holy Land but also in the universal Church and the Order, where our members have actively participated in the Jubilee.
