Headline: ASIA/PHILIPPINES – The Islamic-Christian movement “Silsilah”: Advent and Christmas, time of mercy
Zamboanga – “The new liturgical year, which began with the season of Advent which will culminate with the celebration of Christmas, is an invitation to Christians to enter a phase of new conversion of the heart that Pope Francis presents in the “Misericordiae Vultus”, recalling that God’s mercy is a Christian’s identity card”. This is confirmed in the message issued on the occasion of Advent and in view of Christmas by the Islamic-Christian movement “Silsilah” , born in Zambanga, on the island of Mindanao, in the southern Philippines on the initiative of Fr. Sebastiano D’Ambra, missionary of PIME.
