Mom, Dad and Anya,
So sorry I missed your call for the second time!! This morning’s journey looked powerful. I got tears just watching, I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be there in person, how beautiful it must be. Sorry to hear your sick Mom! I heard you coughing during the stations of the cross :) Anya, looks like you found a franciscan friar for your payer partner during the stations, he reminded me of Fr. Gus here in Steubenville. Wish we could be there with you all!
Love,
Leigh, Jonathan and Felicity

For the Andings:
Mom and Anya, I saw you in the video! It looks like you’re making the most of it, especially you Anya. Mom, I got your call – I’m SO sorry I didn’t answer it, I didn’t even know that it rang until I saw it during class…thanks for calling, though! Hopefully I’ll pick up the next time…I would call you but I don’t know how expensive it would be.
I love you all, and you Dad even though I didn’t see you in the video…:)
God bless and I’m praying for you!!!! Can’t wait to see you back in the U.S.

Hello, Steve and Janet!

I want to tell you both how thankful we are to you for leading this incredible pilgrimage for our family there. We have greatly enjoyed following it day to day. I have been able to see our kids, and even my husband Rick. Usually, he is on the other side of the camera, so I don’t actually see him there. But, this way, I can see him there, too! I know this pilgrimage is an incredible gift from Our Lord. Thank you for letting Him work through you both! God bless. You and all of the pilgrims remain in our prayers!

All for the Holy Family,
Maria Hill

We were excited to finally see you in one of the videos! We were beginning to wonder if you were really there:-) Brandon wanted to tell you hello and to have a good trip.
God Bless You and Keep You Safe,
Bruce, Tammy, Brandon and Torie Miller

Not on the video is the walk Mom and I took to the tomb at 4 am Saturday morning. We reflected on Mary and Martha as they walked before dawn to visit Our Lord’s tomb. We arrived to find Mass in progress in the tomb and stood inside the tomb within feet of where He laid. It was an experience beyond words. We then walked to Golgatha and prayed at the foot of where the cross stood, touching the very rock around which the church was built in the 300′s to make concrete what tradition had so firmly established.

Love,

Mom, Dad and Anya
