Pope Francis will travel to the Holy Land May 24-26. He will visit Bethany beyond the Jordan, the site where John the Baptist was baptizing. He will also travel to Palestine to visit Bethlehem.
In Jerusalem, he will visit the Western Wall, the Mount of Olives, the church of Gethsemane, and the Cenacle.
The Pope will address refugees and the physically disabled on his trip. He will meet with Jerusalem's Grand Mufti, the Sunni cleric entrusted with the city's Muslim holy places, as well as Jerusalem's chief rabbis.
He will also meet in private with Patriarch Bartholomew I, the Eastern Orthodox Archbishop of Constantinople; the two will sign a joint declaration, after which there will be a public ecumenical meeting at the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre.
