Pilgrimage Day 4, Parts 1 and 2

by Steve Ray on January 17, 2010

Great day and great group. Very cooperative pilgrims which make it possible to cover lots of ground and get a lot done with joy and excitement. Today we finished touring around Galilee, ate St. Peter’s fish and headed south — UP to Jerusalem. Beautiful weather though we found rain in the night in Jerusalem.

Before stopping at our hotel we drove to Ein Kerem, the place of the Visitation and the birth of John the Baptist. Then to the Notre Dame Hotel for check in and dinner. Many then took walks in the Old City. Tomorrow we spend the day in Bethlehem.

    Hello Steve,

    Once again, thanks for sharing these videos. I love reliving my pilgrimage experience from last year by keeping up with the current group. It brings back so many memories. I especially appreciate Amer’s words concerning the Christians in the Holy Land. Please let him know that I for one have not forgotten them and will do all I can to support the Christian presence there. It is so essential to preserve those Holy places. He and all the Christians in the Holy Land continue to be in my prayers. Thanks to you and Janet also for buying a plot of land and planting an olive tree in Bethlehem. That is a great idea!

    May God bless you, Janet, Amer and all the pilgrims as you continue your journey this week!

    Mary & Jerry Minihan,

    Just a short note to say that I am glued to these daily play-by-play videos every morning and evening looking at all of the great and holy sites that you are visiting. It appears that Steve and his wife have put together a wonderful package for you to experience the many places of the Holy Lands.

    Please keep me in your prayers during your trip, as I am keeping you in mine for a safe return.

    May God Bless……
