All Day Bethlehem!
by Steve Ray on January 4, 2019
We went through the checkpoint from Israel into the Palestinian West Bank and entered Bethlehem at 8 AM in the morning. We learned about olive wood carvings and icons and had time to shop before Mass in a cave at Shepherds Field where the angels appeared on the first Christmas Eve. Homily here.
Lunch of falafils and shwarma before visiting the birthplace of Jesus in the Church of Nativity. Rosary in the Church of St. Catherine and the a rollicking fun evening of dinner and dancing!
