CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE - JERUSALEM, ISRAEL
CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE
The site where Jesus was crucified and buried is without question one of the greatest places I have ever visited. Being at this place brings your Faith to another level. We waited for several minutes before each of us had a minute to kneel below the alter and kiss the ground where Jesus died on the cross. Being at this place is surreal. There are crowds but somehow you feel alone. When you kneel down below the alter it seems like the sound stopped and it was just you with the Lord. After this experience we prayed and blessed scarfs on the Stone of Anointment where Jesus layed after his death. Finally we visited the sight of Jesus's burial and resurrection where we were given just a few seconds to kneel and pray inside which seemed to be a large vault. Simply humbling and amazing day.
