TABGHA

A palce two miles from Capernaum, Palestine, is the pilgrimage spot of Christ's miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fishes. An ancient basilica was excavated mearby where a large mosaic was recovered, pituring two fishes and three loaves in a basket. In the company of a Franciscan monk and an Orthodox priest Pope Pual, in 1964, on his way to the Sea of Galilee, visited Tabgha to see the mosaic set in the floor and blessed this hallowed shring.
