Legatus Pilgrimage: Tabor, Cana, Nazareth
by Steve Ray on October 12, 2009
First, I want to thank Legatus for trusting us to bring their group on pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Everyone is very pleased. Second, I want to thank Corporate Travel (in USA) and Shepherds Tours (Israel) for working with me to arrange such an incredible and trouble-free trip. It is all about teamwork and this is the BEST team.
Today was the first full day of pilgrimage for Legatus. We went first to Mount Tabor where the Transfiguration took place. After that we went to Cana to renew wedding vows, then to lunch.
After lunch we went to Nazareth to tour the Church of Annunciation and the Church of St. Joseph where the Holy Family lived for the 30 silent years. After that Mass in front of the Grotto where the Angel Gabriel approached the little Jewish girl Mary with the Announcement.
After Mass we arrived back in Tiberias at 4 PM for a free late afternoon and evening. Great dinner. Some went swimming, others rested, others went for walks and runs along the sea.
Thank you for posting these daily videos of your pilgrimage! It is very special for us to be able to share it with you “virtually”. I look forward to following along with you all week!
I was moved to tears to see my parents Mike and Judy Johns renew their wedding vows…. HOW very special indeed for me to witness such and incredible vow between such incredible people!! Please send my love to them…. It looks like they are happy, and that is just wonderful! I look forward to the coming week! Thank you kindly!! s
What a joy to see our friends and Rector from Orlando! Our prayers are with all of you.
Thank you so much for the daily updates. Enjoy seeing my family, the Fischers, on such an awesome trip.
I too was moved to tears when David and Lisa repeated their vows. Can’t wait for the next update.
My love to my family.
