Ave Maria Pilgrimage: Tuesday to Bethlehem
by Steve Ray on March 19, 2009
Today we started the Via Dolorosa (Stations of the Cross through Jerusalem) at 6:00 AM. Then back to the Notre Dame Center for breakfast. Then we went to St. Ann’s where Mary was born and where the Pools of Bethesda are (Jn. 5). Then to the Western Wall to enjoy the many Bar Mitzvah’s going on and then to Mass at Abu Ghosh. The rest of the day was free with several options including a Shroud of Turin Exhibit and my talk on the Palestinian/Israeli Situation.
Tomorrow we go to Qumran, Masada, the Dead Sea and Jericho. Everyone will ride a camel.
Still trying to catch up, but here is the video of Tuesday to Bethlehem. More coming soon. Everyone is well and very happy!
