Judith Sudilovsky of the Catholic New Service writes a story about Easter. She is currently in reporting from Jerusalem.
As Easter approaches, it can be a daunting task to find a quiet moment of contemplation at any of Jerusalem's holy sites, but it is especially so at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
At the Stone of Unction, which commemorates the anointing of Jesus before burial, some faithful find the noise from other visitors fades away. Here is a place and a moment when they can feel the strength of prayer.
