10 Israel: Via Dolorosa, Mass at Calvary, Tomb and Western Wall
by Steve Ray on November 14, 2022
We started early today and it’s one of the most meaningful day for many folks. The bus rolled out of the parking lot at 5 AM and we walked the Via Dolorosa through the Old City of unimpeded.
After a tour of the Holy Sepulchre, we had Mass on top of Calvary. After walking back for breakfast, we had a group picture and then some free time before driving to the Western Wall where I gave a talk to explain its meaning and significance.
We had the nice café reserved just for our group. There were 420 other people jockeying for the buffet line in the cafeteria. Then most of our folks went back to the Holy Sepulchre to get in line and enter the tomb. Free afternoon before we had dinner at the Cheese & Wine Restaurant looking out over the Old City of Jerusalem.
