The pilgrims waited patiently in the square fronting the Church of the Nativity. Rain fell during the late afternoon but. still they waited. Most of them had been there since 2 p. m.. when his beatitude, the Latin patriarch, came from Jerusalem. His procession passed through the historic Jaffa sate and along the Roman road past the Hill of Tan-tur and the remains of Herod's palace and the Tomb of Rachel. At Rachel's tomb the procession halted and the mayor of Bethlehem pxtended the ancient greeting to the Latin patriarch. Then it continued to Manser Square.
