Anyone going to Jerusalem for the Triduum?

If so it may be worth visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. This historic church used the traditional Roman rite for the Triduum services right up until the late 1990s.

The times of the services (for slightly adapted MR2002 celebrations) are of significant interest. Alas I fear I would not be able get up for 5:30am!

I would love to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, regardless of what rite the Catholics there use.

However, it is very sad that all the different groups have so many conflicts. The ladder, the renovations that need to happen, the fights, such a shame. The place could and should be a place of friendship, an example for (acceptable) ecumenism.
