Gethsemane, Mount of Olives, Mount Zion, Upper Room and more
by Steve Ray on February 19, 2019
We started the day with Mass at Gethsemane. The homily was exceptional and you can see/hear it here. From there we went to the top of the Mount of Olives to visit the cave where Jesus taught his disciples to pray the Our Father. It is also from here that Jesus ascended into heaven.
Then to lunch at Ramat Rachel Kibbutz before visiting Mount Zion. We talked about and prayed at the Upper Room before going to St. Peter in Gallicantu where Jesus was tried by the High Priest and imprisoned over Holy Thursday.
We returned back to the Notre Dame where people had a couple hours to regroup and rest before dinner. Great day!
