We spent Tuesday night in Nazareth. 

It takes an hour and a half to climb Mt. Calvary.  You need a clearance from your doctor to walk it.  There are two monasteries on the top of the mount.  A monk there was a student of St. Paisius.

The Apostles saw Christ, but we consume Him in Communion.  Many people left Him when He said, "Eat My Body" and "Drink My Blood."

We see Christ with our inner eyes when we read the Gospels.  We always see Him, but we don't understand.

Moses was talking with God and He wanted to see God. God told him that he can see only his backside. Godís face is His glory. Moses was able to see only a reflection of Godís glory.

Jesus was incarnate and people saw Him as a person, but nobody saw the Father. Peter and the two Apostles were the first to see Godís glory in the Transfiguration. Moses couldnít see Godís glory because he would die. We as sinners canít stand Godís glory.

When Christ came, He transfigured our nature. Godís light is not optical nor physical. It doesnít have physical properties.

Out of 12 Apostles, Jesus usually picks the three. If you want to see God, you have to perfect your heart. The three saw God because they had pure hearts. Mt. Hebron was close to Nazareth.

While waiting to go to the top of the Mount Tabor, a man from San Antonio TX came over to me and apologized for last night. I told him that I thought that the whole thing was funny and gave him my card.

The previous evening I went to the gift shop at the hotel and asked for a converter.  A couple from Texas gave me one.  When I went to my room, I was with more people with Texas and they accidentally left me off the elevator on the wrong floor.  I thought that the whole thing was funny, but they really felt bad.

There were two groups in Israel from Romania.  I was able to inquire about Bishop Vasili of Kluj.  The information was heart breaking.  He had brain surgery a few years ago. 

When Jesus told Peter to go to catch a fish to pay the tax, people laugh.  When Peter caught the fish, people wondered Who He is.

This hotel had a temporary gift shop and a couple from Texas gave me a converter for my electronics there.
