The Feast of St. Joseph, the most pure guardian of the Virgin Mary, the man who nurtured the Son of God, was celebrated in Nazareth on March 20 with a solemn Mass presided by the Custos of the Holy Land, concelebrated by several priests and religious and attended by many faithful.

Custos of the Holy Land
"Joseph teaches us that we must let God speak to us even in surprising ways: this is the meaning of the dream Joseph had. Our intelligence does not take us too far, but if we open our hearts and minds to God's suggestions, then sometimes we will be able to even find an explanation to difficult situations."

After the concelebrated Mass and the procession to the crypt that was built on the place where the Holy Family lived, the headquarters of the Christian Media Center was inaugurated: it is located in a building located just in front of the Basilica of the Annunciation.

Custos of the Holy Land
"Nazareth is one of the symbols of God's communication to humanity: here we can learn how to accept a message that comes from God. Our plan is, therefore, to continue to consolidate the commitment of communication the Custody is carrying out through the Christian Media Center in Jerusalem, through this section of the Christian Media Center in Nazareth as well as through the magazines, the web sites and the different applications."

The mission of the Christian Media Center is to create bridges between the Christians of the Holy Land and the Christians of the whole world through the media. The branch located in Nazareth specializes in liturgical broadcasting and evangelization programs.

"The inauguration of the CMC of Nazareth is the culmination of a four year project. We broadcast in about 20 countries through 8 TV channels promoted by the Custody of the Holy Land in collaboration with the Canção Nova Community, the Shalom Community and the Focolarini. Nazareth is the place of the announcement, of the Word, of the Gospel that reaches the entire world."

The feast of St. Joseph and the inauguration of the center coincided with the 12th anniversary of the Mission of the Canção Nova Community in the Holy Land. This mission which originated in Brazil is dedicated to evangelization through social media.

Director of the Christian Media Center and Head of Canção Nova Community in the Holy Land
"The CMC opens a new subdivision! We started in Jerusalem and after a few year journey, we were able to open a new branch in Nazareth. The good news start here, in Nazareth and from here, reach the entire world. We already were producing news in six languages, and now we have the opportunity to broadcast the celebrations that take place here in Nazareth. For us at Canção Nova, this is a blessing and at the same time a commitment, because it is a service. Our mission is evangelization."
