Gethsemane, Mount of Olives, Rain, Mount Zion and more
by Steve Ray on April 10, 2018
Today we started out with Mass at Gethsemane. It is very moving and powerful for the people and some said it was a highlight of their trip so far. Fr. Scott’s homily is HERE.
Then to the top of the Mount of Olives and lunch at a Jewish kibbutz. Then to Mount Zion where we visited the Church of the Dormition of Mary and the Upper Room.
We saw the Holy Thursday Dungeon of Christ and the Holy Steps on which he walked in Saint Peter in Gallicantu where Peter denied Christ.
We arrived back at the hotel for the Shroud of Turin Exhibit, confession and a wonderful dinner.
