In the city of John the Baptist

We are staying at the Greek Melkite Guesthouse. The Greek Melkite Catholic Church is an eastern Church in communion with Rome.  Last night, Monsignor Jule, the retired Greek Melkite Archbishop of Jerusalem, shared with us about his church and his faith life.

Monsignor Jule is a gentle and wise spiritual father!

This morning, we visited the town where John the Baptist was born.
