What is it?—Nineteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle B)
1 Kings 18:44; Ephesians 4:30–5:2; John 6:41–51 Man hu (מו הוא)? That's Hebrew for "What is it?" And that’s

Newly restored Church of the Nativity It's been a very long day. We came through the border crossing to Jordan this morning and spent the rest of the day making our way to Petra, via the Valley of Moses. We arrived after 9:00 PM, and we have to check out an...
