Legatus Israel Day 3: Mount of Transfiguration, Renewal of Wedding Vows in Cana, and Nazareth
by Steve Ray on September 21, 2019
Two videos today: 1) Our pilgrimage, 2) Magdalena Dinner and Talent Show.
Unusually early morning so as to be the first bus to the taxi stand since the taxis need to drive us up the hair-pin turns to the top of Mount Tabor – the Mountain of the Transfiguration. We had an 8 AM Mass in the Basilica at the top peak of the mountain (homily here). After the Mass we discussed the biblical history of the mountain and what it all means.
Next to Cana of Galilee where we renewed our wedding vows and then headed for lunch in Nazareth before visiting the Church of the Annunciation where Mary was approached by the angel with the message of Jesus’ birth.
A few hours of free time in the afternoon to enjoy the Sea of Galilee and to relax a bit before going out to one of the nicest restaurants in Israel, called the Magdalena, for a magnificent meal.
Magdelena dinner and Comedy/Talenr Show.
We pilgrims are having the best time of our lives! Scripture is coming to life and experienced by us in such a beautifully spiritual way. There is such a balance of activities and holy sites and Steve and Janet Ray are masters of efficiency and logistics. The hospitality of Legatus will long be remembered as is the Quality planning and delivery of the most meaningful experience.
