The “Our Father” as Jesus would have spoken it.

This is a video clip from our pilgrimage to the Holy Land earlier this year. I’ve had some difficulties up loading it but today it has worked. So, here we are in a Christian store in Bethlehem. Ephram, the owner, has just taken a drink and saluted the Queen. He is a great salesman but first of all he tells us about his community, the Syrian Orthodox Church, who speak Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus. Listen to him say the Our Father as Jesus would have spoken it two thousand years ago. It brings back happy memories of our wonderful parish pilgrimage to the Holy Land. If you didn’t get there this time then remember, the next pilgrimage for all ages will be in February 2013. Start saving!
