Church of the Holy Sepulchre
We'll be walking all 14 of the stations of Via Dolorosa ("Way of Grief" in Latin), from the Praetorium and up to Golgotha. This is a path where Jesus was lead in agony, carrying the crucifixion cross. There are a total of 14 stations along this path (known as the "Stations of the Cross"), based on biblical that occurred on the way to the Golgotha hill, the site of crucifixion.
Every Friday afternoon along the Via Dolorosa members of the Order of St. Francis, the religious community that oversees protection of the Christian sites in the Holy Land, walk the Stations of the Cross, showing the way for the Catholic Ppilgrims from all over the World. We’ll also pray at the Holy Sepulcher Church. This huge building covers what Christians believe to be the site of the most important event in Christianity: the place where Jesus rose from the dead.
We'll further visit the Last Supper room, which has been just recently restored after the historical visit of the Pope. This site is the traditional site of the upper room of the "Last supper" ("Coenaculum" - dining room). The "Last Supper" is one of these most important events from the life of Jesus.
We’ll finally proceed to The Garden of Gethsemane it is believed that Jesus was betrayed by Judas and arrested. This garden has some of the world’s oldest olive trees which could have been saplings in the time when Jesus came here with the disciples on that fateful night.
We’ll also visit the nearby Church of All Nations, officially called the Basilica of the Agony, which contains a section of stone that is believed to be where Jesus prayed on the night of his arrest.
