Saint of the Day: St. Alphonsus Liguori

Journey to Jordan: Happy Easter!

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 04/12/15

We spent the afternoon visiting a souk (open air marketplace) in downtown Amman. Amid the blocks and blocks of winding streets, meandering alleys and open storefronts, you can buy anything and everything. The shopkeepers were uniformly friendly and helpful (and, it should be noted, willing to barter).

It gave us a chance to sample a little local culture, and wander around some of old downtown Amman—seeing, among other things, a famous citadel and an ancient amphitheater, now located in a central city park.
It also gave Frank Weathers a chance to show off his muscles.

Take a look.
