Holy Sepulchre

Christ opened his arms on the Cross
to embrace the whole World,
because Golgotha stood at the centre of the World"
- (St. Cyril of Jerusalem)

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.
