Holy Land Pilgrimage Day 6
by Steve Ray on January 27, 2008
Another great day though it was a bit cold. Everyone is doing great – not even a sickness or injury or problem. I am sorry I was unable to upload videos (I have them created but have not uploaded them due to unusual technical difficulties). And the internet cafe was closed on Sunday. Today we toured the Mount of Olives with Mass at Gethsemane. Then we visited the Western Wall and had lunch. The prayers from Mrs. Schuette's 2A class were placed in the cracks of the Wailing Wall today. Then we went to Mount Zion to visit the Dormition Abbey where Steve talked about the Assumption and Queenship of Mary; and we prayed the appropriate Rosary Mysteries. Then to the Upper Room for Amer's history and Steve's talks on the Sacraments and Pentecost, along with the Rosary Mysteries for the site. Some pilgrims walked back to the Notre Dame, others went shopping. Before dinner I took everyone up on the roof of the Notre Dame for a talk on the history of Jerusalem. Talked again with radio personality Lino Rulli (Sirius Satellite's "The Catholic Guy") who is also staying here – he IS behaving himself in case any one wants to know! I should be able to get videos or pictures of Days 4, 5, and hopefully 6 up on Monday.
