Fr. Matt joined 49 faithful pilgrims on a journey through Galilee and Jerusalem. Here are comments from one traveler.
The HolyLand is incredible. To stand, pray and experience the places where Jesus lived out his ministry brings new life to the Bible and scriptures. To celebrate Mass everyday in different places that were part of Jesus life makes the Eucharist that much more meaningful.
The Sea of Galilee is so calm and beautiful. We sailed the same waters where Jesus appeared to the disciples and he walked the shore. The sea has not changed in 2000 years.
One of my favorite places to celebrate Mass was in Bethlehem overlooking Shepherd field. The simplicity of the place and the incredible calm you feel overlooking this field, make you reflect on how our Lord chose to enter this world in the most simple and humble of circumstances.
