THE BURIAL SITE

Apr 21, 2011

..."Then, He, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit."  And He bowed His head, and gave up His spirit.  When evening had come, soon after everything had been done, a respected member of the council, a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea, went to Pilate to ask permission to take down the body of Christ from the cross and bury it.  They took down the body of the Savior from the cross, anointed Him with the spices, wrapped Him in a new funeral shroud and laid Him in a new tomb in a garden next to Golgotha."......       Following the reading of the 12 Passion Gospels, several parishioners stayed in the church to prepare the burial tomb.  A note:  to enlarge the pictures, please move your curser slowly over the first, or any picture, especially around the edge of the photo, until you find the hand with the pointing finger.  Click on the hand and you should be able to enlarge the photo.  When you have the enlarged photo, just click on the arrows under the picture to go on to the others.
