IsraelandYou wishes a Merry Christmas to all of our Christian readers. This post is a preview of your pilgrimage to Israel to follow Jesus’ steps on the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem. We have chosen a video by Episcopal priest, the Rev. Matthew Moretz, which presents an on-site tour of the Stations of the Cross, also called the “Via Dolorosa,” in the Old City of Jerusalem. Although he is a priest, he certainly is a fine tour guide. Israeli tour guides must know their way around the Via Dolorosa in order to present them to Christian tourists. The Stations are a path of piety that follows the traditional path of Jesus’ journey to Golgotha. Each station is marked on the street and has its own traditions.
