Experiencing Good Friday

The faithful flocked to Jerusalem to retrace the steps of Jesus on Good Friday along the Via Dolorosa. The route, which was extrapolated by Franciscan monks in the 14th century, ends at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre–the church believed to be on the site of Jesus’ death and burial, and owned by Muslims.
