Everyone Arrived Tired but Ready to Go!

by Steve Ray on November 11, 2008

Everyone on the two separate flights — El Al and Air Canada — arrived safe and sound. We picked them all up at the airport in three buses, took them to Jerusalem for a good dinner and reverent Mass. Everyone is now in bed resting up — preparing for a busy day Wednesday starting at the Mount of Olives, Dominus Flavit, Mass at Gethsemane, lunch at a Jewish kibbutz, an overview of Jerusalem and to Ein Kerem for the Church of the Visitation.

Things Don’t Change Much

by Steve Ray on November 11, 2008

“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”

Cicero – 55 BC
