Day three

We have left the Hotel Golan which was our home base in Tiberias and are traveling south to the actual site of Christ’s baptism by St. John. We will continue on to Jericho and Jerusalem this afternoon.

We all received a special blessing from Father Nick as we stood at the very spot where St. John the Baptist baptized Jesus. (See Matthew 3:3-17)This site is different from Nayarit (the site visited by most Christian pilgrims as shown in yesterday’s post), as it lies alongside the border of Israel and Jordan. As I stand at this site I think fondly of my own godparents.
