Archbishop Patrick Kelly of Liverpool blesses children from the parish of St Justin in Rafidia, a northern suburb of Nablus in the Palestinian territories, during a pastoral visit on January 9. He told parishioners: ‘We are here to be with you in solidarity, but also to encourage you to build bridges. We all bring our sorrows, but we can transform them.’
