Way of the Cross to Mass on Calvary, Tomb, Western Wall and more
by Steve Ray on January 5, 2019
In some ways today is the pinnacle of the whole pilgrimage, which is why we start up in Galilee and end up in Jerusalem for the Passion of Christ. Up early in the morning each carrying their own cross as we pray the Stations of the Cross we all arrive at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where we go directly up and touch the top of Calvary.
We have Mass where Jesus was crucified and then a tour of the church (Gospel and Homily here). Back for breakfast, a group picture and then off to the Western Wall where we learn the history of this most important Jewish side and it’s meaning for us today as Catholics.
A great lunch inside the Old City, entering the tomb of Christ to pray and touch our religious items, free time to explore on their own and then a great dinner on the rooftop of Jerusalem looking out over the Old City.
