Another astounding day. We have to admit that we love the emptiness – 90% of groups canceled their trips to the Holy Land so we have no lines, no crowds, no pushing and shoving. My people were smart to trust me. It is quiet and safe and we are having a great time – the Holy Land is ours!
I hope you enjoy today’s video starting with a moving Mass at Gethsemane. Did you know that it was here that Jesus suffered more than he did on the cross? Then to the Western Wall to pray at the holiest place for Jews and the place dearly loved by Jesus.
From there to lunch at a Jewish kibbutz (delicious, by the way) and then to Mount Zion to visit the Dormition of Mary and the Upper Room. Why did Luke tell us there were about 120 “names” in the Upper Rome? If you were with us you would know why :-)
We had time for confessions, a deacon’s meeting, a Catholic Bible software demonstration (www.Verbum.com/SteveRay) and then we went to meet the Bishop of Jerusalem – wonderful. Then dinner and bed.
