Gethsemane Mass

May 3, 2012

In the stillness of last evening we gathered in the grotto of the garden of Gethsemane for Mass.   This was a brief ten minute bus journey from our hotel after dinner.  At 8.30 we entered the grotto in silence. Fifteen minutes later we began Mass, praying for your intentions.  Following Mass, we again took time to pray in silence before returning to the hotel.
