Holy places

   I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."
Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem. - Ps 122:1-2


 Non enim pro locis res, sed pro bonis rebus loca amanda sunt
"Things are not to be loved for the sake of a place,
but places are to be loved
for the sake of their good things."
