As the nation joins the global Christian community in celebrating Easter, pilgrims and religious fathers in Israeli visited the holiest places in Christendom and took time to pray for Zimbabwe.
The group led by the country’s honorary Consul to Israeli, Levi Musan visited the Holy Temple of Jerusalem and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where Jesus was crucified and buried.
“These places connect people to the history and the spirituality of religion. It draws into your life a renewed spiritual energy, joy and new hope that will affect and bless your future. We are in the holy land and praying for the nation of Zimbabwe, its people and leadership,” he said.
The rare and impeccable images of religious leaders in Jerusalem praying in significant places while holding a picture of President Emmerson Mnangagwa speaks volumes of the gesture by the pilgrims who saw value in praying for Zimbabwe and its leadership.
Before the Covid-19 pandemic hit the globe, Easter was synonymous with millions of pilgrims from all over the world visiting places such as the Western Wall and the remnant of the Holy Temple of Jerusalem in Israel, to pay homage to the world’s capital city of religion.
