    That’s a Wrap!

    Posted on
    After finishing all of the blog posts from our trip to the Holy Land, I knew there would be a bunch of stuff that I didn’t have time to share. So I went through the nearly 1000 photos I shot and have picked out a few of my favorites from things we saw and experienced […]

    Papal Mass in Bethlehem

    Posted on
    We had an amazing day attending the Papal Mass in Manger Square in Bethlehem. We arrived about 3 hours before Mass began. There was not a cloud in the sky, and though it was hot out, there was a fairly nice breeze throughout the morning and the humidity was very low. (That’s a real luxury […]

    Holy Ground

    Today our pilgrimage took us to Holy Ground. I have to admit, this is all quite overwhelming. Not only trying to keep up with our amazing guide, George, and take in all of the information that he imparts, but also being in the moment at the places where our Lord lived and died. I suspect […]

    A Day of Prayer

    Posted on
    A pilgrimage should be a time of prayer. Sometimes this is much easier said than done, especially in a place like the Holy Land where there are often huge crowds. You sometimes have to rush in and out of places to make room for the next pilgrim(s). Today was a day of intense prayer for […]

    The Rock

    Today was a day of transition for us. Having spent the last couple of days at the Sea of Galilee, it was now time for us to make our way back to Jerusalem. So we packed our bags and set out to make the journey back south. Before we left the northern region of Israel, […]

    The Sea of Galilee

    Posted on
      What an amazing day in the Holy Land! We spent the day around the Sea of Galilee. This is the area where Jesus and the Apostles spent the bulk of their time. There is so much to see in this region that we decided to stay for a couple of days. Even then we […]

    A Very Busy Day

    Posted on
    Our day in the Holy Land started with Mass this morning at Notre Dame Center. When we left there, we began to make our way north to Galilee. While on the way, we stopped at many places and experienced a lot of things. Here’s a brief rundown for the day. It all started in Jericho. […]

    It’s a Small World After All

    Well we made it to Israel! Our flight out of Tampa was delayed again and again until we thought we were for sure going to miss our flight to Israel. God’s timing is again perfect! We made it to JFK in the nick of time to board the flight to Tel-Aviv. Unfortunately, Michelle’s luggage didn’t […]

    The First Sign

    God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good! This morning Michelle and I were running around packing and making final preparations for our trip to the Holy Land. When you’re a homeowner, you want to make sure that everything is in good working order before you leave. Our two boys […]
