Mass at Capernaum is always a great way to start the day. The readings are from the Gospel of St. John chapter 6 “ Eat My Flesh and Drink My Blood.” Fr. Dan’s excellent homily here. I give my talk There entitled “Defending the Eucharist.”

From there we get on a boat and voyage out to the center of the sea of Galilee for talks, singing and reflection (not just on the water ? Our guide Amer gives a great talk (allegory) about the two seas in Israel watch/hear his talk here.

Then to one of our favorite lunch restaurants and eat Saint Peters fish. Good experience for everyone ?

Then I tell my conversion story on the drive south to Jerusalem. But first we stop at the Visitation and I give my talk about defending the Catholic church’s teaching on Mary. We finally arrive at the majestic Notre Dame Hotel in Jerusalem for dinner and bed.


Find the missing books of the Bible

by Steve Ray on February 17, 2019

Read the following paragraph and see if you can find the name of sixteen books of the Bible that are hidden in the text:

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu, kept people looking so hard for facts and for other it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized, but the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others, it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. YES, THERE WILL BE SOME REALLY EASY ONES TO SPOT. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. One little lady says she brews a cup of tea, so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now for there are really sixteen names of books of the Bible in this story.
