Early Morning Via Dolorosa, Mass at Holy Sepulchre, Western Wall and Dancing in Bethlehem

by Steve Ray on January 5, 2017

Our last day of pilgrimage was a fantastic conclusion to a deeply spiritual and whole lot of fun adventure. Enjoy today’s recap as we wake up at 5:00 AM to pray the Stations of the Cross before the streets of the Old City turn into chaos. Mass at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (excellent concluding homily here).

Then we gave everyone some free time to enjoy Jerusalem before loading the bus with our luggage and heading to the Western Wall. We ended the day at the Grotto Bedouin Tent Restaurant in Bethlehem for great salads, grilled meats and most fun — DANCING!

I was wondering, in all of your journeys and pilgrimages to the Holy Land, have you ever had a chance to head a little north and visit St. Maron’s Monastery and pray before St. Charbel’s grave/shrine? I’ve heard he is a very, very powerful intercessor.
