Pilgrimage: Rome and Holy Land

I will be leading a pilgrimage to the Holy Land which will include a three-day stop in Rome, departing on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, and returning on Saturday, March 3, 2018.

On February 20th we will fly from San Antonio to New York City, where we will enjoy a 5-hour tour of two important sites: The 9-11 Memorial, built at the place where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once stood, as well as St. Patrick's Cathedral.

That evening, we will board our trans-Atlantic flight to Rome - the Eternal City - arriving the following morning. We'll spend three days in Rome and visit some of the places most important to our Faith.

Then, on February 24th we will depart on our flight to Tel Aviv, going directly to our hotel on the Sea of Galilee. Nazareth, Mount Tabor (Transfiguration), Cana, Mount Carmel, Caesarea, Capernaum, Tiberias, Mount of Beatitudes, Bethlehem, Bethany, Jericho will be on our pilgrimage as we head for our destination of the Holy City of Jerusalem. There are many places to visit and in which to pray in this most important city We will walk the original Stations of the Cross, taking us to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre - the site of Calvary and the Tomb.

We will, of course, offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass daily, and we will read and contemplate the Holy Scriptures - especially the Gospels - in the very places where it all happened.
