On our Way to Israel

by Steve Ray on November 7, 2008

We are on our way to Israel to lead Ignatius Press for their 30th Anniversary as a publishing company. It will be fun taking my friends on this trip. It is a way of saying THANKS for being my publisher and for sponsoring the Footprints of God DVD series which is now showing on EWTN.

Stay tuned — starting in a few days you will be able to join us right here on a Virtual Pilgrimage as I upload videos each night from the pilgrimage (technology-willing!) To see past Virtual Pilgrimages visit

UPDATE: We are grounded in Detroit while waiting for an FAA “inspection” of many planes. We are not sure what is going on but three hours after we were supposed to fly, we are waiting still in the waiting room.

2ND UPDATE: We made it out of Detroit well after midnight — five hours past our original departure date. 75% of the passengers had left or booked on next-day flights so we had a delightfully spacious flight to Amsterdam to catch the second flight to Israel. Whew!


Fun Day in Rome: “University & Eggplants”

by Steve Ray on November 7, 2008

About two weeks ago Janet and I had a fun day in Rome and thought we’d share it with anyone who is interested. I entitled the video “University & Eggplant.”

We did a talk at the Legionaires University in Rome and later in the day we visited our favorite restaurant where we learned to make eggplant parmigiana.
