Pope Benedict on Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

by Steve Ray on December 28, 2010

P1000536“To go on pilgrimage is not simply to visit a place to admire its treasures of nature, art or history.

“To go on pilgrimage really means to step out of ourselves in order to encounter God where he has revealed himself, where his grace has shone with particular splendour and produced rich fruits of conversion and holiness among those who believe.

“Above all, Christians go on pilgrimage to the Holy Land, to the places associated with the Lord’s passion, death and resurrection.”

–Benedict XVI (Nov. 6, 2010)   (Picture: Place of Jesus’ birth)
