Mass at the Tomb of Christ, Touching the Top of Calvary, Praying the Real Stations of the Cross
by Steve Ray on May 13, 2014
Another great day. Perfect weather and excited pilgrims. We started early this morning walking the Stations of the Cross and then touching the top of Calvary. The perfect sequence was to celebrate Mass at the Tomb of Christ and to enter and touch the place where he lay.
Everybody was in tears and overwhelmed with the whole experience.
Then we went to the Paternoster where Jesus taught his disciples to pray the OUR FATHER and where he ascended into heaven.
Everyone had the afternoon off to go exploring, praying, napping, or whatever they decided to do. At 5:00 PM we had the most wonderful Holy Shroud Exhibit. Then dinner and a free evening.
All is well and and all the pilgrims are doing well, excited and enjoying themselves. Many of them have been in tears throughout the trip.
