Prayers at heaven's gate include Emmanuel Episcopal's own Wailing Wall

Many of us are familiar with the Wailing Wall, which is located in the Old City of Jerusalem on the western side of the Temple Mount. It is a remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the courtyard of the Temple in Jerusalem. That temple is believed to have been constructed around 19 BCE by Herod the Great. It was destroyed by the Roman Empire along with the rest of Jerusalem in 70 CE. This remnant of the ancient wall has been called the Wailing Wall, which comes from “Place of Weeping”, the traditional Arabic name for the wall.
