All around the Sea of Galilee – Day 3
by Steve Ray on December 31, 2022
The cooler weather in December and January is always lovely compared to the heat of summer here. We started out the day with the sumptuous breakfasts at the Ron Beach Hotel before heading to the Mount of Beatitudes for Mass overlooking the sea.
Then to Tabgha to celebrate the multiplication of loaves and fish. I then gave my talk at the Primacy of Peter and we saw the table where the Lord fed his disciples in John chapter 21 and walked down to the shore of Galilee.
Lunch in Capernaum, where we all had Saint Peters Fish, the very fish caught by the disciples and eaten by Jesus. Wonderful view of the sea during lunch. Capernaum was our next stop where we viewed the home of Jesus, for three years during the time of his earthly ministry living with Saint Peter. I gave my talk “Defending the Eucharist“.
We stopped by the hotel for an hour to give everybody time to rest and regroup, and then we drove to Nazareth for the most marvelous New Year’s Eve dinner that could be imaginable. Compliments were raging! People had a choice of salmon, lamb chops, or fillet steak. Everybody’s now enjoying themselves in the lounge or going to bed and we will see you all next year!
