Join CMEP for a screening of a short film about the life, ministry, and advocacy of His Beatitude Michel Sabbah followed by remarks from His Beatitude as well as a Question and Answer time with him.
His Beatitude Michel Sabbah served as the Archbishop and Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem from 1987 to 2008, the first non-Italian to do so in over five centuries, and is an outspoken defender of Palestinian rights.
On December 12, 2020, the film “The People’s Patriarch: Reflections with Patriarch Michel Sabbah” was released during a meeting organized by Al-Liqa’ Center for religious and heritage studies in the Holy Land, the Youth of Jesus’ Homeland, Kairos Palestine and Al-Sabeel Center. The film was directed by Mr. Mohammad Alatar and produced by Dr. Lily Habash. In this film, the Patriarch shares the history of the Palestinian struggle, his views on the current situation, and his uncompromising commitment to the truth.
Rev. Dr. Mae Elise Cannon. CMEP's Executive Director, will join as a panelist for this discussion. She is an ordained pastor, and author of several books including her recent Beyond Hashtag Activism.
Kevin Clarke, Senior Editor for America Magazine. Kevin Clarke is America’s chief correspondent and the author of Oscar Romero: Love Must Win Out (Liturgical Press). Kevin will facilitate this screening and conversation.
