Easter in Jerusalem 2013

Easter time in Jerusalem 2013.

Crowded then ever.

Special energy in the air.

A big Ethiopian group was visiting the Garden of Gethsemane , and at Mary’s Tomb  the Armeniens had their daily service.

Along the Via Dolorosa   various groups were walking in excitment, chanting and and praying at every one of the “stations of the Cross”, reaching eventually the Holy Sepulchre .

The next day I happened to be at the Baptism site , documenting Russians conducting baptismal rites.

.

The “Holy Land” definately deserves its title at times like these.
