Bishop Sheen Celebrates Mass in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem

This is the altar under the care of the Latin Church on Mt. Calvary, watched over by the Franciscans of the Custos.  It is called the "Nails of the Cross Altar," where Jesus was nailed to the cross, located adjacent to the Greek-Orthodox chapel where Christ was raised on the cross.  I am privileged to say I have stood here, praying these same words, in the Usus Antiquior, on a FSSP pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  We offer one every November, after American Thanksgiving.  Stay tuned for 2018.
