captionThere are about 150 persons who are working full time for this project, including laborers, technicians, and volunteers. There are 37 Arab-Christian workers, 32 Arab-Muslims, 20 Druses, 10 Maronites, and 21 Hebrew technicians. The progress of this project has been, as we can see from the chronology, extraordinarily rapid. Even more surprising is the profound communion that is given and is still being given among people of such various religions, cultures and mentalities. Certainly, overcoming any type of barrier or prejudice, everybody perceives the visit of the Pope as an epochal event. They also perceive to be participants in the construction of a project of historical importance.
