Jordan Day 4: Petra! Cooking Class and more
by Steve Ray on September 11, 2018
One of the Seven Wonders of the World and a site related to biblical history with both Moses and St. Paul, today we toured Petra! This is one of those sites that seems to be on everyone’s Bucket List.
We left our beautiful Marriott Hotel and entered the massive and colorful sandstone corridors leading up to the great Treasury and the city carved into rock. Some of our folks rode camels and horses and we had a marvelous time.
We drove north again through the deserts of Jordan and came to Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, where we had Mass in a church I consider one of my top five most beautiful churches because of the murals and paintings. You’ll see them in the video. You can enjoy another great homily by Fr. Gavin Badway here. We spent the night in Madaba.
