Roman-era Mosaic from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre
I am still in Jerusalem. Today I heard a Latin Mass sung in a stone church by a minor order of brothers charged with keeping the sacred places in this city. I visited the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Tomb of King David, and a room vaulted by Crusaders because they believed it to be the hall of the Last Supper. Yesterday I heard a Mass, or their equivalent, by the Armenian church which remains quite important here. They have a tremendously beautiful form. Later I walked by the garden of Gethsemane, through the Valley of Kings, and to the Mount of Olives.
Look for me to return home toward the end of the week. Greetings, though: I wish you well this third Sunday of Advent.
