|The Site of the Resurrection|
* The door
* Sunday Vigil
Today the Site of the Holy Sepulchre of Jesus lies amidst the buildings of the Old City of Jerusalem. Surrounded by markets, souvenir shops and minarets it invites pilgrims to meditate about the Mystery of Redemption that unfolded at this spot. Time and history have left their scars but it has managed to preserve its incomparable meaning. Even if many a time you find yourself distracted by the masses of pilgrims walking in all directions, you can still fall on your knees and proclaim with joy: "Alleluia! Jesus is Risen, he is not here". Regardless of the Christian denomination you belong to, you will feel that this spot has witnessed the "Glory of God in Jesus Christ".
This Web site wants to be a "virtual visit" to this most sacred Christian site. We shall also review the twenty centuries of history of this unique monument.
