Holy Land: Adventure of a lifetime

Rev. Lawrence D'Anjou

There simply is no place on earth like the Holy Land!

To touch, see and experience the places that Jesus touched, saw and experienced literally changes the pilgrim in a new and fascinating way.

The Scripture readings at Mass are no longer just "some place" in our mind's eye. After a Holy Land pilgrimage you will know that place first-hand.

For example, as you hear Jesus proclaim The Beatitudes, you will know the sights, sounds and sensation of that blessed place. It can truly be transformative and amazing.

Join us for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in February 2017. Expert tour guides will help us understand and appreciate each site we experience. Their facts and information will make this pilgrimage much more than a sightseeing tour. Their expertise will help us appreciate even more the work of God's salvation initiated more than 4,000 years ago in this Holy Land.

I'm sure you'll never forget our time together. Bring your hat and your Bible. We'll be having a spiritual and personal adventure of a lifetime!

(Father D'Anjou is pastor of St. Raymond Parish, Dublin. The Catholic Voice is sponsoring a pilgrimage to the Holy Land with him.)
