MADISON -- Many people think of the Vatican as the “Mother Church” of the Catholic Church, but Jeffery Abood points out that the true Mother Church is in the Holy Land.

“This is where the Church started,” he emphasized in a recent talk on “Who Are the Christians of the Holy Land” given at Holy Name Heights.
