Steve Visits Magdala
by Steve Ray on July 22, 2011
Several years ago we joined Fr. John Solana on a visit to Magdala, home of Mary Magdalen. Fr. John was appointed head of the Notre Dame Center in Jerusalem by the late Pope John Paul II. We went up to Galilee to shoot a TV show at the ruins of the old city of Magdala — home of Mary Magdalene. Joe Reynolds, our videographer from Skyline Productions, did the video work.
Above is just a 2-minute video clip of the ruins of Magdala and the stones you see me walking on are part of the ancient Via Maris, the Way by the Sea. Jesus and his disciples walked along this road just about every day since it was the main thoroughfare along the sea.
