On the vigil of the Feast of the Transfiguration, Saturday, August 5, Father Giuseppe, parish priest of Tiberias, and the brothers and sisters of the Koinonia John the Baptist community were invited by the Sri Lankan community in Tiberias to bless their new weekend residence. Despite the scorching weather, the group rejoiced together with a time of prayer and blessing of the apartment followed by a wonderful meal and a time of sharing, prepared by the Sri Lankan sisters. We thank the Lord for the gift of friendship and his generosity in our lives.
