Within Your Gates: A Pilgrim Guide to the Holy Land
A Pilgrim Guide to the Holy Land
Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem. - Psalm 122:2
In May 2009, Benedict XVI became the third pope to ever visit the Holy Land. His encounter with the Fifth Gospel, as this land is often described, cast new light on the shrines that commemorate the life of Jesus, as well as the rugged geography He roamed two thousand years ago.
Salt + Light’s Kris Dmytrenko retraces the Pope’s pilgrim path through Israel and the Palestinian Territories. Dmytrenko leads viewers from Nazareth, home of the Holy Family; to the shores of the Galilee, where Jesus preached and healed; and finally through the gates of Jerusalem, where love triumphed over death.
Biblical passages and the Pope’s homilies breathe life into the ancient sites. Interviews include His Beatitude Fouad Twal, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem; and Rabbi Yona Metzger, Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Israel. Rare footage and a stirring soundtrack capture the Holy Land as never before.
