Day 6: Gethsemane, Mt. of Olives, Mount Zion, Upper Room & more
by Steve Ray on November 19, 2019
Moving 3 buses around is always a challenge but it’s going as smooth as silk and everyone is very happy. We are covering all the bases and doing it was great organization and joy!
Today we started out with Mass and talks at Gethsemane. This is always a very moving place for people. From there to the top of the Mount of Olives to the place where Jesus taught the disciples to pray the Our Father. Also the place he ascended into heaven.
Lunch at a kibbutz and then to the high lookout promenade overlooking Jerusalem for my talk “The Story of Salvation from Adam and Eve until Today.“ Mount Zion was next for the Upper Room and Church of Dormition. Most of our group lined up and entered the empty tomb of the Holy Sepulchre. Some free time and dinner at the hotel.
