2023 Desert Formation Experience: Vlog Day 10

by Editorial Team

Seminarian Ryan Ferrigan from the Diocese of Lansing shares his thoughts on what it means to pray at the sites contained within the Holy Sepulcher Church. Being the location of the entire Paschal Mystery, this church has been a favorite spot for the Seminarians to come and pray. The morning was spent praying in the Holy Sepulcher at the various sites within the Church. Inside, there is what is believed to be the place where Jesus died on the cross, a place where St. Helen found the True Cross, the stone of unction, where Jesus was laid after being taken down from the cross, and what is believed to be the site where Jesus was laid in the tomb!
