Pilgrimage to the Holyland - Part 2
It has taken me some time to collect my thoughts about the pilgrimage. What made it so special was thought that it really brought the Bible and in particular the Gospels to live. Being in the places where the stories took place was a wonderful experience.
Church of the Pater Noster - where the Lord's Prayer was given to the disciples
Church of the Holy Sepulchre
This covers the site of the crucifixion and burial of Jesus
