Successful First Day in Israel with Pilgrims

by Steve Ray on January 29, 2012

It was a good first day. The pilgrims all arrived in good shape at the Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. We jumped on our comfortable bus and headed to Galilee. Amer and I updated, shared, informed and welcomed all the great folks on the bus ride. What a great group of authentic Catholics ready to experience the life of Christ and the sacraments as we travel the land of Jesus and Mary, the Apostles and prophets, kings and martyrs.

We arrived in Tiberias for Mass, a wonderful dinner at Ron Beach Hotel and everyone is now in bed sleeping soundly to prepare for a busy day tomorrow. We will visit Mount Tabor (Mount of Transfiguration, renew marriage vows at Cana of Galilee, and Mass at the Grotto of the Annunciation in Nazareth. Enjoy the video of today’s arrival.

Running Along Shore of Galilee; Morning Fishermen

by Steve Ray on January 29, 2012

Check out my running trip with a map, pictures and video on EveryTrail.com: Fishermen and Galilee Shoreline.

Picture 1: Looking across Galilee to the Golan Heights, visited by Jesus; Picture 2) Hills (mountains by Israel’s standards) along the Sea of Galilee. Jesus went up to mountains to pray. Was this one of them? 3) Fisherman coming in after a night of fishing like the apostles; Picture 4) Me running along a walkway along the Sea.
