Postcard from Washington’s Franciscan Monastery

Beside the Memorial Church of the Holy Sepulchre at the Franciscan Monastery, the garden is home to the Stations of the Cross tucked among the many flowers and trees.

During Lent last year, a trip to the Holy Land really wasn’t an option. But a day away to the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America was. Inside the beautiful church and outside in the garden are memorials to key moments in Jesus life, death and resurrection. Nice to think about my visit again now on Ash Wednesday, standing in six inches of snow, looking forward to spring and Easter.
