Pinnacle Day! Via Dolorosa, Calvary, Mass at, and Entering the Tomb and more
by Steve Ray on September 18, 2023
Early morning for the Via Dolorosa, touching the top of Calvary, and having Mass at the tomb. After the Mass we were the first group allowed to go inside the tomb where Jesus was buried in rose again.
After breakfast, we went up the Mount of Olives to visit Paternoster, where Jesus taught his disciples to pray the zOur Father and from which he ascended into heaven. After a Shawarma lunch overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem we went to Mount Zion to visit St. Peter in Gallicantu were Peter denied Jesus, and where Jesus was kept in a prison over Holy Thursday night.
We arrived back to the hotel at 2:30 and everybody had free time to go to the old city of Jerusalem and time to explore or rest.
