It was an inspiring, full day of discovery that took us 2000 years back in time to the world of the Bible.
It was our dream fulfilled in Nov 2005 . Our visit to the Holy Land has been an unforgettable experience .It was a gift from our Blessed Lord .The pilgrimage to the Holy Land was s totally different experience, a great spiritual holiday,it was a wonderful and emotional experience following the steps of our Lord
While walking on the Holy land, one experiences a great closeness to our Lord and our Blessed Mother, and we truly live the gospel in a more conscious manner. Each passage from scripture comes alive with such intensity; we suffer along with our Lord and the Blessed Mother, love them more and become more grateful for their great love towards us, for His redemption, for His word which is light to our lives. In short, it leaves an indelible mark in our hearts and our beliefs are reaffirmed and strengthened more profoundly.
The days spent there was an emotion I cannot explain. You have to live it and experience it, words cannot describe it.
To visit so many places where our Lord was and where our Blessed Mother lived with St. Joseph. Places where our Lord preached and performed so many miracles, where He prayed and where He suffered so much for us. In the Way of the Cross, “The Via Dolorosa”, one experiences an indescribable emotion.
We cry with our Blessed Mother, and we experience the pain that she and our Lord suffered for our sins, but at the same time we experience a feeling of peace and joy. To renew the promises of Baptism at the River Jordan where our Lord was Baptized by John the Baptist, and the promises of marriage at Cana of Galilee where our Lord performed His first miracle through our Mother’s intercession, is an unforgettable experience where you have a feeling of immense joy.
We wish and pray to get one more chance in this life time!
This is an experience that every Christian has to experience at least once in his or her lifetime!
