Pilgrimage Day 4: Boat on Galilee, Capernaum, St. Peter's Fish, to Jerusalem & more
by Steve Ray on April 26, 2012
Today was another great day with marvelous weather, curious pilgrims, insightful talks, great food, and wonderful holy sites in the footprints of Jesus and Our Lady.
Mass at Capernaum is always special – partaking of the Body and Blood of Our Lord right where he said, “Eat My Flesh, Drink My Blood.” The long boat ride across Galilee is always a highlight, as is eating the same fish Jesus ate.
We have conversion and vocation stories on the bus on the way to Jerusalem, but we stopped along the way at the place of the Visitation for a talk on Mary.
We had a special blessing after dinner. The bishop of Jerusalem called me (Steve Ray) and offered to come visit with our pilgrims. It was a great evening. See the pictures. Tomorrow we spend the whole day in Bethlehem.
