"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

How about a set of places from famous events in the Gospels?



Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem


Jesus' baptismal site in the Jordan (a few different theorized locations)


Peter's House in Capernaum


Mount Tabor, traditional site of the Transfiguration


A theorized site of the Transfiguration


Pool of Siloam


The Temple (had events like Jesus walking there at the Feast of Hanukkah and chasing out the moneylenders)


Pool of Bethesda


Path of the Via Dolorosa


Church of the Holy Sepulchre


Mount of Olives

I feel incredibly blessed to have experienced life before internet/cell phones.

Lost it silly in "Expelitraumas":

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."
