Retracing the Footsteps

Holy Week is only a few days away and many possibly are thinking of vacation spots, reunions and beaches. While other will just opt to confine themselves at home to avoid the rush or for whatever reasons. Attending the church services is also a must for us Catholics during this season. But what could be more compelling than any other is, visiting the Holy Land.

Since many of us could not visit Jerusalem in our lifetime, I created an interactive map to point the landmarks where the Last Supper took place (Cenacle on Mount Zion), the Garden of Gethsemane, the place where He was sentenced ( now The Church of Condemnation) to Via Dolorosa (Way of the Suffering) and end to Golgotha or Cavalry now the Church of Holy Sepulcher.

Visually, you can make a rough estimate of the distances Jesus Christ have walked. From the Garden of Gethsemane where He was arrested, to the place where He was sentenced and to Cavalry where He was crucified. You can also see on the map important places mentioned in the bible e.g. Mount Olives.
