Day 7: Via Dolorosa, Mass at Calvary, Western Wall, Free Afternoon, Dinner on Roof of Jerusalem

by Steve Ray on November 15, 2017

F5ED32C3-E84E-432B-99E5-6F32E9F5D9F8 Today was our very early morning. We wanted to walk the Via Dolorosa before the sun rose and arrive at Calvary with our hand held olivewood crosses. We all touched the top of Calvary and had Mass at the foot of the cross. Homily here.

We also went to the Western Wall and then had a nice walk through the old city of Jerusalem for lunch at a favorite restaurant to help support the Catholic family. We gave everyone the rest of the afternoon off for confession, Eucharistic Adoration and time to explore Jerusalem on their own.

We ended the day with a magnificent dinner on the rooftop of Jerusalem looking out over the holy city.

Hey grandma and papa hope you guys are having a lot of fun. Looks like you are eating some pretty funky food. Don’t drink to much of that fancy wine. Love you guys a lot and have a safe trip.
