First Flight in Six Months

by Steve Ray on August 19, 2020

Today I had to fly from Detroit to Minneapolis Minnesota so that I could give a talk here at Legatus. I was also supposed to give a talk at the seminary but the seminarians have not returned yet.

So it was my first flight in six months and I was curious to see what the airports and what the flights would be like. It was a bit surreal but quite easy and I would encourage people to get back in the air.

We have just finished putting together a full and exciting schedule of pilgrimages for 2021. Brochures are all being uploaded this week and we hope you can join us.

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” –St. Augustine ********************************************* Pope Paul VI referred to the Holy Land as the “5th Gospel” implying that a pilgrimage rounds out and compliments the Scripture for a fuller understanding. “A long procession of people…have gone in search of the ‘footprints’ […]

“Life is about the Journey, not the Destination!” Huh?!

June 10, 2020

“Life is all about the Journey, not the Destination!” (paraphrase of a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.) I saw this sign at the airport recently. Imagine! In an airport of all places! What stupidity! Grab a passenger arriving at the airport to catch a flight and shout, “Hey, take any flight you want sir, it […]
