Tour the Holy Land with Father Michael, CP
“Walk Where Jesus Walked”
Many people dream of making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I invite you to join me on May 20-28, 2020 to Walk Where Jesus Walked. We will visit the many holy sites where Jesus and the Apostles lived and worked over 2000 years ago. The cost is $3999 per person based on double occupancy. Brochures are available in the Monastery office. Collette Tours, with over 100 years of experience in the travel industry, has put together an outstanding package for us. I invite you to contact John Henry, our travel agent, at 631-708-5361.
Two thousand years ago the Magi in the Gospel travelled rugged terrain in search of the new born King. All they had was a star to guide them until they found the true Light of the world in the town of Bethlehem. Modern day pilgrims are also drawn by a light, an inspiration, to visit the Holy Land where Jesus walked, preached, performed his miracles, and the city in which he suffered, died, and rose from the dead for our salvation. We will celebrate Mass together at many of these holy places.
Pilgrims leave the comfort and security of their homes on a journey of faith. They immerse themselves in a foreign culture, mixing with strangers every day, and relying upon the hospitality of hotels and tour guides. Buoyed up their prayers and religious experiences at many holy sites, they endure the hardships of travel in order to drink in the glory of God that surrounds them. Such a spiritual pilgrimage can be a life changing experience that bonds a person more deeply to Jesus, and to the Christian family that nurtures one’s faith. I hope you can join us for this memorable pilgrimage.
Fr. Mike Salvagna, CP
