Cruise Day 5: Rhodes and Steve’s Talk on St. Paul
by Steve Ray on October 24, 2018
Rhodes is a biblical site mentioned in Acts 21:1 where St. Paul stopped on his 3rd Missionary Journey. Private Mass at Santa Maria Catholic Church in Ialysos, Rhodes and you can hear the homily here.
I was able to make the arduous climb all of the way to the top of the acropolis with about 12 others in the pouring rain and the wind blowing hard enough to knock you off the mountain so that I can get pictures of the port of St. Paul where he arrived 2000 years ago.
We took a tour of ancient Rhodes in the archaeological site on our way back to the ship. Return to the ship for lunch and a free rest of the day. There’s a lot to do on the ship and people are enjoying themselves. I also gave my talk “The Life and Ministry of St. Paul” at 5:00 before we had dinner. Enjoy Rhodes!
