Wednesday's festive Mass for the Feast of the Transfiguration was broadcast live as streaming video.
Hundreds ascended to the top of Mount Tabor, believed to be the place of Jesus' transfiguration, and packed the beautiful Franciscan basilica.
Father Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Custodian of the Holy Land, and many other priests conducted Mass in the upper part of the church.

Cameras of the Franciscan Media Center were grinding away (including one on a huge long boom).
The view of the Jezreel Valley from the top of Mt. Tabor, the lone rounded mountain, was splendid.
Someone really picked a good place for the transfiguration.
UPDATE: The Franciscan have put up a nice video about the mountain and their church there.
