NBC‘s brief look at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is intertesting enough on it’s own.
But what is particularly entertaining, is what one of the priests says at the end.
You see, there are several Christian traditions that lay claim to various parts of the church. As you might expect if you’ve ever attended any church for any length of time, they don’t always get along.
And by that I mean there are occasional fist fights that break out in the holiest place in the Christian faith.
But what’s not sad, is what one of the church’s priest says (around the 10:32 mark) in response to why the various denominations are so careful to make sure they use their allotted time and space to perform whatever ceremony it is they need to perform.
It’s simple really.
“If you don’t use it, you lose it.”
