SCARVES ON SCARVES
Ahhh! To step foot on the land where I was born! The excitement has spread, the heat has risen and the scarves have been wrapped. What an incredible feeling. The day we visited the Church of the Annunciation, the Franciscan Church in Cana, and the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes, the temperature was well over 100ºF. I was instructed not to wear a tank-top/skirt combo because of entrance rules, but my Californian bred body could not bear the burden of wearing jeans and a t-shirt. To my luck, the minute we arrived to the Church of the Annunciation, we were offered a selection of scarves to choose from. I had to not only wrap my legs, but wrap my shoulders, as well. *Upper body scarf not pictured in above photo due to heat*
Significance of the churches:
- Church of the Annunciation: Tradition says that this is the home of the Virgin Mary.
- Franciscan Church in Cana: This is where Jesus was said to have turned water into wine.
- Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes: It is said to have been the location of Jesus’ third appearance to his disciples after his Resurrection.
I should have taken more photos, but I wasn’t able to engage in the spiritual energy at the same time.
