Mary's Tomb

From the Garden of Gethsemane we went to Mary's Tomb, which is adjacent to it.  There is an impressive flight of steps into a chapel and the grotto, which is believed to be at the place where Mary was laid to rest, is in the chapel.  It was an opportunity to remember Mary's contribution - and also to reflect on our contributions.  We all have a role in God's great plan - but how strong is our response?

By Mary's Tomb is the Cave of Gethsemane or the Cave of Betrayal which is believed to be the place where Judas betrayed Jesus.  Do we betray - sometimes?  And what do we do about it?
