A method called paleomagnetic dating measured changes in the earth’s magnetic field across a sequence of samples to calculate the age of the soil around the tools.Ari Matmon, also from the Hebrew University, took soil samples for a different test known as cosmogenic burial age.The new disclosures are contained in a biographical sketch of Father Ford by Germain G.Grisez, who worked with the priest in Rome during a critical period in the commission’s proceedings.The second day, when the pilgrim has been awake for 24 hours and has completed nearly all of the stations, is particularly powerful, Martin said."You get an inner stillness that really makes you think about things on a deeper level," he told Our Sunday Visitor.Over the course of the three days, pilgrims pray at nine penitential stations called "prayer sequences." Each station involves a style of Celtic prayer where the silent praying of the Lord's prayer, the Hail Mary and the Apostles' Creed is repeated in a mantralike fashion.Five stations are located outside around "penitential beds" and four are located within St. At each bed they pray, walking three times around the outside, kneeling at the entrance, walking around the inside and kneeling at a cross in the center.

To determine reliable dates for the age of the tools discovered in Wonderwerk Cave scientists used an unusual combination of tests.
Hagai Ron of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem took more than 50 small samples of soil from the cave where the tools were found.
The earliest evidence for cave occupation by hominids has been discovered in South Africa.
Stone tools found at the bottom level of Wonderwerk Cave show that human ancestors were in the cave two million years ago, earlier than thought, according to an international research team led by Michael Chazan, director of the University of Toronto’s Archaeology Centre.
Pope Paul expanded the commission’s membership and mandate in June 1964.
