Tour Day Five

The morning started in Cana where Fr. Mike spoke about discerning ones vocation. The three married couples on the pilgrimage renewed their marriage vows there. Next the group took taxis to the top of Mt. Tabor for Mass at the beautiful Basilica of the Transfiguration. As they journeyed toward Jerusalem, they stopped to cool off at the natural springs, Sachne, for lunch and a swim. Then they stopped at the spot of Jesus' baptism and renevew their baptismal promises. On the way up the hills to Jerusalem, they had the chance to ride some camels and also to view St. George's Monastery and learned about monastic life. Final stop before the hotel in Jerusalem was the overlook on Mt. Scopus, the first glimpse of the Holy City!
