From I Come in Peace— Peace is very much like that experience of finding what was never lost. It’s present regardless of conditions or circumstances. When you find peace within yourself, then that’s what you bring forward. You bring forward the message, “I come in peace.” Read more here . . .
From How can I Respond to Abusiveness with Unconditional Loving — It takes great courage to not strike back. It takes great courage to find a way to stop the againstness, to neutralize it — to have the sins that were our father’s and our mother’s that are part of our inheritance not continue on. So if my father was a liar and my mother was a thief, that doesn’t mean that I have to be a liar or a thief. I don’t have to continue the negativity. I can choose into the positive and love it all.

St. Mark- Jerusalem- Painting of the Virgin Mary by St. Luke II
Jerusalem is relatively not ancient in that much rebuilding has been done over the two millennia. Still, it’s more than interesting to ponder and consider what is the blessing here and now including for the inscription in Aramaic for the time of Pentecost.
Claudia Flores, Leigh and I returned to the Notre Dame Catholic facility where we celebrated John-Roger’s birthday dinner on the rooftop. By “chance” we met Father Christofo now working there and originally from Mexico and a close friend of a very close friend of Claudia and her family. He then personally gave us a tour of the relatively new Museum of the Shroud (based upon the Shroud of Turin} which is arguably considered to have been used to cover Jesus’ body after the crucifixion.
Regardless of the authenticity of whether it was Jesus who provided the image on the shroud, there is an unsolved mystery as to how the image was photographically created by some form or flash of light even with the technology of today. Whoever the man of the shroud was, it’s clear he was crucified by the body markings and fluids still on the shroud linen. While the carbon 14 test showed the shroud to be about 800 years old, the sample was taken from a patch that was re-woven and possibly done later by the direction of whoever had custody.
St. Mark- Jerusalem- entrance- Main door
We learned among other things that botanists have scientifically determined that the microscopic pollen still on the shroud not only had to be from an area between Jerusalem and Hebron in Israel but also that certain pollen found on the shroud would be flowering between March and April. Hmm.
Furthermore, the shroud has the blood such that they know the type was AB, and the shroud images match up with a secondary face cloth that has been housed in Ovieto, Spain since the 7th century. That translates in human genome terms to we have the man’s DNA.
I am reminded of the scripture, “He is not here. He is risen.”
After the recent Light Tour in Israel, Leigh and I traveled to Neuchatel, Switzerland for some MSIA/PTS/IIWP/HeartFelt service. Over two days, we facilitated the PTS Gratitude, IIWP Peace, and HeartFelt Circle of Light workshops, an MSIA Q&A, and MSIA Baptisms. Veronique Sandoz and Dominique Kohler were our hosts with some expert assistance volunteered by IIWP Administrator, Debbie Roth.
Prana Switzerland is alive and well. Enjoy the scenery.

During an open day in our schedule in Jerusalem, a group of us limited to 35 walked the so-called tunnel at the original foundation of the western wall of the temple mount. One of the foundation stones stretches across some 10 meters and weighs 57 tons. How that stone was so precisely hewed and placed is still considered an unsolved mystery.
The greater importance is what is above just east on the Temple Mount considered to be of the Holy of Holies in which God placed Its original creation into manifestation and marked as where Abraham was to sacrifice his son Isaac, the dwelling place of the Arc of the Covenant, and location of the Ascension of Muhammad with archangels Gabriel and Michael in attendance. We continued our walk circumnavigating the Temple Mount and making a brief visit to St. Anne’s Church named for the mother of the Virgin Mary who was born nearby. St. Anne’s is famous for many PAT IV renditions of the MSIA Alleluia song.
As we continued our walk around the Temple Mount, we stopped along the eastern wall at a place just below the still sealed Golden Gate for a Moment of Peace and Blessing before continuing our walk along the walls. The last time I recall one of our groups spending so much time along a wall was in 1988 at the Berlin Wall when J-R famously told the group about putting a worm of light into the wall and declaring the wall would come down within two years. And it did!
Our group also drove through nearby Jericho where another famous wall came down when Joshua led the Israelites across the River Jordan into the land of Canaan to walk seven times around that oldest known city wall while shouting until it came down.
Let us join in prayer for the peace of Jerusalem so that all may find harmony and goodwill living together as neighbors and friends as an example to all of the world.
