Stopping time - Touching History

On one of my visits to the old city of Jerusalem, I visited the church of the Holy Sepulcher. It was a very emotional moment for me, despite the fact that I am Jewish, to see this pilgrims shed tears when they touch the stone where Jesus was taken off the cross. They were still, saying their prayers, crying, and it seemed that for them, the time stopped for a few minutes.
