to Jerusalem

Apr 20, 2012

In just over a week parishioners of Our Lady of Victories, with family and friends leave Christchurch on pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  

To journey as a pilgrim to the Holy city of Jerusalem is a goal of every Jew and Muslim. Along with Christianity, these three communities of faith are decendants of Abraham, our ‘father-in-faith’.

The Temple at the heart of the city of Jerusalem was the centre of Jewish faith.

This video-clip from Denis McNamara (one of my teachers on my sabbatical leave last year), is a good introduction to the life of the Temple.
