Pilgrimage to the HOLY LAND
Of all Christian pilgrimages, the Holy Land must surely be the most desired. Since the first day of that empty Tomb - pilgrims from all over the world have made their journey of faith to that sacred spot to ponder, wonder and above all to re-live the life of Jesus.
This is the land where Jesus was born, suffered, died and rose from the dead for our salvation. Many pilgrims, in Origen's words, wished
"to walk in the footsteps of the Master"
The land is a mixture of rocky mountains, fruitful plains, sea coasts and spectacular deserts as well as containing a spiritual and historical treasure trove. From the Mt of Olives to the shores of the Sea of Galilee and green oasis, it is full of contrasts.
In Pope John Paul II's words, ...
" It is a witness which sets me in a long procession of people, who for 2000 years have gone in search of the "footprints" of God in that land, rightly called "holy", pursuing them as it were in the stones, the hills, the waters which provided the setting for the earthly life of the Son of God ... How many pilgrims, how many saints, have followed these paths down the centuries! Even when events in history disturbed the essentially peaceful nature of pilgrimage to the Holy Land, giving it an aspect which, whatever the intentions involved, was hard to reconcile with the image of the Crucified One, more sensitive Christian souls sought only to find the living memory of Christ on that soil".
Walk in His Footsteps and see through His eyes. A visit to the River Jordan, Bethlehem and Nazareth and the many other places associated with Jesus and His Holy Family make this
"the pilgrimage of a life time."
