Legatus Has Arrived in Israel!

by Steve Ray on October 11, 2009

All is well. Everyone from the Legatus group has arrived safely and all was organized and efficient. We had Mass in a Jewish subdivision of Nazareth in a quaint little Franciscan chapel called the Church of St. Gabriel the Archangel. Our priest and spiritual director is Fr. Vincent Nagle, the secretary for the Patriarch of Jerusalem.

We arrived at the Scots Hotel in Tiberias about 5 PM. Others had arrived earlier. We had a sumptuous dinner and everyone is now in bed. All is well!

Tomorrow we go to the Mount Tabor (Mount of Transfiguration), Cana for wedding vow renewals, lunch in Nazareth and then Mass at the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth. Stay tuned!


Is this a Christian Nation?

Holy Cross Pilgrimage: Masada Day, Part II

by Steve Ray on October 11, 2009

In this video we finish up Friday — the Optional Day — where we went to Qumran, Masada, Jericho, Dead Sea and Bethlehem for a special dinner. THIS video finishes up that day with Mass at Jericho, the Dead Sea and the Passover Lamb and dancing in Bethlehem. Enjoy!

Here is the last day — on Mount of Olives and Mount Zion. Then the Good-byes and the bus leaving for the airport.
