Photos of Stella Maris

Here’s a few photos from the church on Mount Carmel dedicated to Our Lady.

The site has a complicated history. The Carmelites were kicked off Mount Carmel (and in some cases also killed) a number of times, but the present basilica and monastery date from 1836.

In the Holy Land Again

Filed under: Catholic News — Fr. John Larson @ 5:51 am

Yes. I’m back in the Holy Land, and while there are many similarities to my previous trip, I’m seeing a few new sights.

In this trip, I saw–from a distance–the many caves spotting Mount Arbel. I found a blog entry from someone who explored the caves:
Mount Arbel

Our guide suggests that the zealots were hiding out in these caves at the time of Christ, and that perhaps, while Jesus was on his way down to the Sea of Galilee, he called Simon the Zealot out of one of these caves. It’s possible.
