Blessed by the Pope

On May 26th in Jerusalem, during his historic visit to the Holy Land, His Holiness Pope Francis blessed the tabernacle of the “Duc in Altum” Church in the Magdala Center, a pilgrimage and spirituality center on the shores of the Lake of Galilee. The first phase of the Magdala Center was officially inaugurated on May 28th with a Mass presided by the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, His Beatitude Fouad Twal in the Spirituality Center.  The tabernacle blessed by Pope Francis was placed in the Church. 

The Magdala Center, a project headed by the Legionaries of Christ, also features an Archeological Park which contains the remains of Mary Magdalene’s hometown, including a synagogue in which Jesus is thought to have preached.
