Next we drove to visit Mount Carmel place where Elijah encountered the 450 prophets of Baal challenging their god and asserting his faith in the one true God. We offered mass for the Carmelite communities and visited Stella Maris, Church over the cave where Elijah hid before the mission God had given him, to challenge Baal and bring people back to the one true God. This prophet is patron of women wanting a child and of the sick who are in need of God's healing grace. It is also the place where Mary gave the scapular to Simon stock. This was followed by Haifa-observation point. A beautiful garden built by the Bahai community overlooking a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean sea and port destination. We were transferred to Palestine by evening.
Tel Aviv Street
The main beach of city has a spectacular view from Jaffa. I forget if this was the sunset or sunrise but it was magical either way. That little tiny boat in the far distance looks so peaceful and serene. In reality, there were probably a bunch of sweaty, Jewish men trying to fish on it.
