August 2014

Hello Everyone. Janet and I have settled in, made sure everything is safe and in good order. We have the 60-seater bus ready to go with our new colorful 6′ x 2′ foot magnetic signs to slap on both sides of the bus.

We have Rosaries for everyone to touch on the holy sites, our guide Amer is in good form and ready to go and the land awaits us. Fifty-five pilgrims will board El Al (the safest airline in the world) and land in Tel Aviv at 12:25 Monday morning. We will be there to pick them up.

We are in for a great spiritual adventure. One nice thing: many groups panicked and canceled which leaves far fewer other groups to compete with. No lines, no waiting, no pushing or jockeying to get access to holy sites. There are other groups here but not nearly as many as usual. 

I will start posting daily videos for you to join us virtually starting Monday. God bless you all from the land of the Patriarch and Prophets, from the kings and queen mothers, from Our Lord and Lady, from the Apostles and Fathers of the Church. We can feel it already :-)


We arrived in Jerusalem and all is well :-)

by Steve Ray on August 30, 2014


On the VERY full plane just before landing

We arrived at the Tel Aviv airport this morning at 5:00 AM. It is no different from the 130 times we’ve arrived in the past.

We’re now at the Notre Dame Hotel in Jerusalem, went out for dinner went to Saturday evening Mass and are now comfortably settled into our hotel.

Good morning Jerusalem from our hotel window!

Our group is very wise to have waited and watched and stayed with the program. It is quiet and safe and the the Holy Land is ready to receive our pilgrims with open arms. We are in for a wonderful and magnificent spiritual experience.

Dinner on the patio overlooking Jerusalem

I am working on a YouTube video which I will post Sunday morning so that people can see what it’s like on the ground in Jerusalem. Stay tuned!


Victims of Radical Islam – Graphic Images…

by Steve Ray on August 26, 2014

Christians crucified for refusing to convert to Islam

This is what happens to people who will not convert to Islam when the radicals come calling.

ISIS (IS) is an example of what can happen when Islam is unfettered. I’ve heard it said, “The only good Muslim is a bad Muslim” meaning one who does not really follow the Koran completely.

Luke 14:27 “Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple.”

Village display to intimidate conversion to radical Islam

Archbishop of Mosul: “I have lost my diocese to Islam – you in the West will also become the victims of Muslims.”
