First Full Day went GREAT!

by Steve Ray on June 5, 2010

Today we went to the top of Mount Tabor where the Transfiguration took place; then we renewed Wedding Vows in the church in Cana where Jesus turned water into wine (John 2).

Then we had an authentic Nazareth lunch before going to the Grotto where Gabriel announced the birth of the Savior and the Incarnation began. The altar says “The Word Became Flesh HERE!” We had Mass in front of this cave.

I gave a talk “A Day in the Life of the Holy Family” above the cave where they lived for almost thirty years. We then had some free time and Bus 3 went to Aberge Shulamit for dinner (more on Pilgerhaus Hotel and Aberge Shulamit later).

All are well and having a great time.
