Christmas in Jerusalem

People wait to enter the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Built around 1200, it replaced an earlier church that stood on this site. TOBY SALTZMAN/Special to QMI Agency
Strolling on the Via Dolorosa, there comes a moment that transcends time, when you realize that -- whatever your faith -- the cobblestones beneath your feet are precious testimonies of the biblical past that shaped our world. If stones could talk, what stories they could tell of the characters that trod this path, and the miracles that bestowed the Holy Land's sacred appeal, which still lures pilgrims after thousands of years.
