VIDEO: Pilgrims From Around the World Celebrate Easter in Jerusalem

26 Apr 2011



















In the Old City of Jerusalem, several hundred Catholic pilgrims from around the world gathered for the Easter Vigil at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Catholics had their vigil just after daybreak 23 April, and the Israeli police set up roadblocks in anticipation of the many people expected for the Orthodox vigil later in the day. In the early morning hour, Catholics prayed as they waited to pass through the roadblocks.
