We used to feel sorry for St. John for being exiled on the Island of Patmos. But once you land on this beautiful island it’s hard to feel sorry for him :-) Just joking! When John was exiled hear it was a place of banishment and suffering. But today we visited the cave or St. [...]
I gave a short talk and Mary the Mother of God in Ephesus where Mary had lived with St. John the Apostle. I gave my talk at the Church of the Virgin Mary where the 3rd Ecumenical Council of the Church declared Mary the Theotokos, the Mother of God. Enjoy!
Today we voyaged from Athens to Thessalonica where Paul preached the gospel to the Jews and then to the Gentiles. Today we took a tour of Thessalonica and had Mass in the Catholic Cathedral here. The Greek Orthodox claim to be 97% of the population and are not kind to the Catholics, but there are [...]
Here is the video from friday. We drove across Greece to our ship south of Athens and boarded and headed out to see. The group that is cruise-only arrive before us and were greeting us as we entered the ship. Enjoy the video!

We enjoy having Tom Monahan of Domino’s Pizza and Ave Maria University with us on this trip. Today we visited the Mount of Transfiguration where we celebrated Mass, then [...]
Our last day was happy and sad. It’s always sorrowful to say goodbye to all her new friends and new friends they are. We started out today going to Trinity College in Dublin. The main attraction here is the Book of Kells. These glorious illustrated Gospels were written and designed over 1000 years ago which [...]
Friendly, clean and historic city. Great tour. Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral and tour of St. Patrick’s Cathedral that was confiscated from the Catholics by the British. Overall a great day ending with Patrick often doing his magic show (which will be featured in a second video today) Enjoy! Patrick Coffin’s Magic Show
