Mercy In The Holy Land
"Rome is often the first place people think of when considering the Catholic Church. In Rome, a Catholic experiences the beauty, grandeur and history of Catholicism. Most of the disciples, martyred for their faith, are buried there. The Vatican Museums display beautiful art, produced over centuries and depicting what Catholics hold sacred. In the life of the Catholic Church, Rome is its Sunday best.
But Israel is the place to experience the day-to-day, living faith of Christianity." - Elizabeth Westhoff
