Last Day & Departure of Legatus Pilgrimage

by Steve Ray on October 18, 2009

Up early for a trip to pray at the Western Wall, then to St. Ann’s — traditional site of the birth of Mary and the miracle of John 5. Then to Mass at St. Stephen’s Church outside the Damascus Gate where St. Stephen was martyred and where we first meet Saul of Tarsus (St. Paul) in the Bible.

Part Two: Last afternoon, evening and departure. Many good-byes and comments.

Legatus Pilgrimage “Fun Day”

by Steve Ray on October 18, 2009

The Optional Day is always fun with swimming in the Dead Sea, cable car ride to the top of Masada and camel rides. We have serious business too — studying the Qumran Community and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Mass in Jericho and more.

I just ran from Jerusalem to Bethlehem and back. It is 90 degrees today! Whew!
