The Stone of Anointing

The Stone of Unction, also known as the Stone of Anointing. This is the place where Jesus’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.
It is customary for pilgrims to kiss the stone or rub it with oil and then wipe it with a handkerchief. Since we have learned so much about Buddhism and Hinduism on our travels- we decided we would also learn more about Christianity, so we all touched the rock for a chance at becoming a bit holy. 🙂
