ATTENTION READERS !
Mea culpa--I am guilty of a big mistake in yesterday's post and offer my apology to you and to the Ecole Biblique. I assumed that the burials in the crypt were of people's ashes. NOT true! It is the normal burial (of a body in a casket) of deceased Brothers.
The text following my photo of the crypt has been duly corrected.
Professor Strugnell's ashes, brought from America, are the only ashes.
Dina, Dina, why did you assume something without checking the facts?
I had never seen multi-story burial. I have much to learn . . .
Sincere thanks to Fr. Jean-Michel de Tarragon of the Ecole for pointing out my error, and (mercifully) in a kind and friendly manner. Thank God for teachers such as he.
