2023 Desert Formation Experience: Vlog Day 11

by Editorial Team

Seminarian and Franciscan Friar of the Holy Spirit, Br. Lawrence, shares the history and beauty of the Church of the Transfiguration on Mt. Tabor! The seminarians traveled to Jericho in the morning and then made their way to the top of Mt. Tabor, where the Church of the Transfiguration is. They had Mass inside the Church, in the crypt altar, which contains many stunning mosaics. The Church is owned by Franciscans who also have a monastery on top of the mountain, with a beautiful view of the land around it along with a view of the city of Nazareth!
