Today we went to the Nazareth Area. This is where Jesus grew in Adulthood and Middle Age. We went to Mt. Tabor where Jesus showed himself to be God. He was transfigured before the eyes of three of the Apostles. It is on top of a Mountain all by itself, up from the Jezreel Valley. Even with four busloads of people it did not seem crowded at all. It was hazy today, so you couldn't see as far as uusal, but it was still beuatiful. We took a shortcut to Nazareth, really a rock road from a small town to a divided highway leading into Nazareth. Went to the Church of the Annunciation and the Synagogue where Jesus studied and taught. Even went to the Precipice where the Leaders of the Synagogue wanted to throw Jesus over for blaspheming. But he walked through their midst. And then drove back to Jerusalem. Another wonderful day. I have named my project as "Praying the Path of Jesus". So I took a number of pictures today of paths from the Nazareth Village. I will probably use one of them as the cover of the Project. Here are a few samples.
I am a Catholic Priest. Usually I am a Pastor of a Parish, but now I am on Sabbatical in the Holy Land. I would like to share with you my journey. I hope it inspires you to become closer to Christ. This is a great adventure for me, so check back & see what I have done each day.
