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.
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.
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!
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.”
This is good news for our pilgrims as we are leaving this weekend for the Holy Land.
We are very pleased that our full bus is still full and everyone trusted us to wait and watch and still go. Now their patience and trust will pay off with a wonderful pilgrimage following in the footprints of Our Lord and Our Lady.
