“The work will finally begin, and it is past time,” said the Rev. Peter Vasko, president of the Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land.

“The place is falling apart,” he said.

Vasko recalled the first time he prayed over the covered tomb as a young priest and trembled with the realization, “I am not worthy.”

“This is the real thing,” Vasko said. “It is not a holy place. It is the holy place.”

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
