We then visited the Via Del Rosa or the "Way of Sorrow/ Way of the Cross." This was another somber experience. We spent time in the place where Jesus was sentenced by Pilate to be crucified. We prayed here as well. After this it was on to the pool of Bethsada where Jesus perfomed a healing miracle and then we went to visit the new part of the city before lunch. We are not going to the tomb for until Tuesday so today kind of left us on Good Friday.
The theme of prayer and sorrow continued in the afternoon as we went to the Holocaust Memorial and Museum. This is an incredible museum marking a terrible time in history. The museum is dedicated to the over 6 million Jews that lost there lives and the heroes that faught to save the lives of Jews during this time. This was a moving experience. As I left the memorial to the children that were killed during the holocaust I just wanted to hug and hold my kids. Did I mention that I missed them?
