All Pilgrims to Israel have arrived safely!

by Steve Ray on June 4, 2010

But we never doubted it. Follow our Twitter reports from my home page multiple times each day. All is well, safe and beautiful in Israel. Have no fear! All is going as planned.

A good Mass on the shore of Galilee, a good dinner and all are in bed getting ready for a great day tomorrow on the Mount of Transfiguration, renewing Wedding Vows in Cana, and Mass at the place the Archangel Gabriel announce to Mary the birth of her new divine Son.

    Hey Steve can you take a picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary statue in the back where Archangel Gabriel announce to Mary the birth of her new divine Son? It outside in the back, the one where she on the big long pillar with her hands out.

    Say Hello to my mother Helen Marcucci. Tell her that I am with her here on this video. Make sure you get good pictures so I can scrapbook. Have fun. I feel like I am there with you.
    I can’t wait to see the video for today.

    GREETINGS TO DIANITA PATUEL & JIM LACKEY from Dianita’s mom…Praise the Lord!!! You have arrived safely and are walking on the same streets that Our Lord walked on. How awesome is that…please take care of yourselves and take alot of pics to bring home. Also, keep us updated on the upcoming nuptials…still praying for guidance for both of you.

    Say an extra prayer for your Mom!

    Hi Gene & Benitia —

    I didn’t see you on the arrival video — don’t be so camera shy!

    It appears that you’re following pretty much the same shcedule we have with Stevey and Scott when we went in 2009, and I’m sure that this trip is just as much a blessing for you as it was for us.

    We’ll have lots to talk about when you return. You and your fellow travelers are in our prayers.

    God bless,

    Good shot of Jim & Dianita at the 6:00 minute mark. Then a few seconds later is Sister Norberta(?), who is in the same religious order as Sister Mary Margaret from Our Lady of the Atonement.

  • Deb Crane says:
