Day 3: Wednesday – January 6 - Caesarea - Stella Maris - Nazareth – Cana - Tiberias
Theme: The Annunciation
This morning after breakfast, we will leave for Caesarea, which was once the ancient capital of the Roman province. Here you view the impressive archaeological remains of the Roman and Byzantine city that once dominated the region. It was at Caesarea that Peter came to understand that the Good News was not for Jews only, but for the whole world. Here he baptized the Roman Centurion, Cornelius, and his family. It was from Caesarea that Paul set sail for Rome, an event that eventually brought Christianity to the World. Continue north to Haifa to visit Stella Maris, a Carmelite Monastery dedicated to Our Lady of Mt Carmel, and located over the cave where Elijah lived. After enjoying the view of the bay of Acco, drive to Nazareth, the site of Mary’s home and the town where Jesus lived as a child (Matthew 2:23). In Nazareth, we will visit the Church of the Annunciation to Mary (Luke 1:26-35), Byzantine Church of St. Joseph and Mary’s Well. View the site where Jesus was rejected (Matthew 13: 54-58). Continue to Cana, where Jesus performed His first miracle at the request of His mother [John 2:1-11]. Here visit the Franciscan chapel where those who wish to may renew their wedding vows. We will end the day with a visit to the Mount of Beatitudes, scene of Jesus’ great Sermon on the Mount (Luke 6:20 – 49). We will then make our way to Tiberias to check – in to your hotel. Dinner and overnight.
Lecture: TBA
Mass: TBA

 

Day 4: Thursday – January 7 - Tiberias: Sea of Galilee – Banias “Caesarea Philippi”
Theme: The Ministry of Christ in the Galilee
After breakfast we start with a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee (Luke 5:1). After this, see the remains of a boat that dates back to the time of Jesus, found buried in mud. Nearby is Tabgha, where Jesus fed the crowd of 5,000 (Luke 9: 10 – 17) and onto the site known as “Peter’s Primacy”. Here, after His resurrection, Jesus met with His disciples (John 21) and told Peter to “feed my lambs; feed my sheep.” (John 21:9). A short drive away is Capernaum, from where Jesus launched his Ministry (Matthew 4); see the synagogue which dates to the time of Jesus and the church built over the site of Peter’s home, and where Jesus taught (Mark 1:21-29). In the afternoon, we will go to Banias, also as “Caesarea Philippi, the site of Peter’s great confession (Mark 8:27) acknowledging Jesus as the Messiah. It was here that Christ designated Peter’s confession as the rock upon which the Church would be built (Matt 16:13). Nearby is the site of Tel Dan, which was the home of the Tribe of Dan. Dinner and overnight at your hotel.
Lecture: TBA
Mass: TBA

 

Day 5: Friday – January 8 - Jordan River - Mt. Tabor – Jericho – Jordan River - Jerusalem
Theme: The Transfiguration
Today, after breakfast, drive to Mount Tabor, the site of the Transfiguration (Matthew 17: 1 – 50), with time to reflect on Christ’s Humanity and Divinity. Mass here, at the Basilica, will be a good preparation for the journey to Jerusalem where Jesus was to suffer the crucifixion and resurrection. Drive down south to Samaria, a land rich in Old Testament history, passing Jenin, whre Jesus healed the ten lepers (Luke 17: 11 – 19). Enjoy lunch in Sebastia, ancient Shechem (Genesis 12:6), and rebuild by Herod as the capital region. Then we see the twin peaks of Mt. Gerizim and Mt. Ebal, known in the Old Testament as Mt. Blessing and Mt. Cursing (Joshua 8: 30 – 35). Mt. Gerizim is today the home of the few remaining Samaritans. We stop at Jacob’s Well, hewn out of solid rock over 100 feet deep. As it manually dug out, it is most certainly the same well mentioned in the Gospel of John. The water at the bottom of the well is fed by flowing water which is why ancients gave it the name of “living water”. It is at this well that Jesus met the Samaritan woman, and said to her: “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:14) Many pilgrims today like to drink from the well. Continue on to Jerusalem through the beautiful Levonah Valley, referred to in Judges (21: 19) as the Valley of the Dancers and passing Shiloh, where the Ark of the Covenant was kept (Joshua 18:1). While on the drive, we will see examples of ancient watchtowers (Mark 12: 1 – 12). Check-in to your hotel for dinner and overnight.
Lecture: TBA
Mass: TBA

 

Day 6: Saturday – January 9 - Bethlehem
Theme: The Visitation and Nativity
Begin the day with a visit to the Second Temple scale model for an overview of Jerusalem as it was at the time of Jesus. A short drive takes us to the village of Ein Karem, birthplace of John the Baptist, to visit the church that commemorates his memory (Luke 1: 39 – 80). Pray the Mystery of the Rosary on the walk up the hill to the Church of the Visitation. In the afternoon visit Bethlehem to see the cave at the Shepherds’ Field (Luke 2:8). The caves have soot marks of the fires that shepherd’s lit to keep warm while watching over their flocks. In the afternoon we will depart to Bethlehem, beginning at Manger Square, which stands in front of one of the oldest of Christian churches, the Church of the Nativity. Enter the Church and down to the Grotto of the Nativity which marks the spot of Jesus’ birth (Matthew 2: 1 – 18). Beneath the Altar, there is a silver star with the Latin inscription: HIC DE VIRGINE MARIA JESUS CHRISTUS NATUS (Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary.) After Mass we will return to the hotel in Jerusalem. Dinner and overnight.
Lecture: TBA
Mass: TBA

 

Day 7: Sunday – January 10 - Qumran – Jordan River - Dead Sea
Theme: Early Years in Jerusalem & the Wilderness
This morning drive down the Jordan Valley to Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Then to Jericho, the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world (Joshua 6: 12 – 25), where we view the Mt. Temptation (Luke 4:1) and the Symcamore Tree (Luke 19: 1 – 10). Drive through the Judean Wilderness where Jesus spent 40 days fasting, and it is this area that John the Baptist (Mark 1) lived and baptized Christ. After lunch, visit the Baptismal site on the River Jordan (Matthew 3: 13 – 17), and continue to the Dead Sea (Ezekial 47: 8 – 10) with time for a dip in the Dead Sea for those who want to experience the salty waters. Then make our way back to Jerusalem to celebrate Mass. Dinner and overnight.
Lecture: TBA
Mass: TBA

 

Day 8: Monday – January – 11 - Jerusalem: Mt. Of Olives - Mt. Zion
Theme: Palm Sunday and the Agony in the Garden
From the Mount of Olives take in the panoramic view of Jerusalem. Then to the Pater Noster shrine, where Jesus taught His disciples the Pater Noster — The Lord’s Prayer (Luke 11:1-4). Walking down the Palm Sunday Road stop at the beautiful little church, Dominus Flevit - “The Lord wept.” It was here that Jesus wept over Jerusalem [Luke 19:41]. We enter the Old City to see the Pool of Bethesda (John 5: 1 – 9), which supplied the water for the Temple and where Jesus healed the crippled man. At the foot of Mt. Zion is the Pool of Siloam, which is fed by the Gihon spring and where Jesus healed the blind man on the Sabbath (John 9: 13 – 14). On Mt. Zion, we visit the Church of Peter in Galilcantu, where Peter denied Christ (Luke 22: 33 – 34) and the Upper Room (Matthew 26: 17 – 30) where we have Mass. Dinner and overnight.
Lecture: TBA
Mass: TBA

 

Day 9: Tuesday – January 12 - Jerusalem: Gethsemane
Early morning start to walk on the sacred ground of the Temple Mount. We remember the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple (Luke 2: 22) and the confrontation with the money changers (John 2: 13) Then make our way to Gethsemane to reflect on Jesus’ final night (Luke 22: 29 – 53). The Garden contains trees, the roots of which go back to the time of Jesus. Visit the Church of All Nations to pray at the “Rock of Agony,” a section of bedrock identified as the place where Jesus prayed alone in the garden on the night of His arrest. Visit the Western Wall, to see all that remains of the Temple compound that dates to the time of Jesus.The remainder of the day will be free to explore the Old City.
Lecture: TBA

Mass: TBA

 

Day 10: Wednesday – January 13 - Jerusalem: Via Dolorosa - Holy Sepulchre
Theme: The Way of the Cross, The Crucifixion, The Resurrection
This morning we start the Via Dolorosa (The Way of the Cross) at the Antonia Fortress, where Jesus was condemned to death by Pontius Pilate (John 18: 28 – 19: 16). From there He was taken through the city to be crucified. The Stations of the Cross lead, through the markets of the Old City to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Luke 23: 26 – 33). Here is the site of Calvary and the Tomb of Christ (Luke 23: 50 – 55). Mass will be in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Return to the Hotel for breakfast, and then check out of the Hotel at noon. Board the coach bus and head to the site of Emmaus, where Christ appeared to the two disciples and gave the first Eucharist after the Resurrection (Mark 16: 12 – 13). Return to the hotel for a light Cocktail Reception. We will bid farewell to our new friends and family, and a Pilgrimage which will be in our memories and hearts for a long time to come.

Around 8:30 P.M, we leave for the airport for the return flight home. (Some Flights depart at 11:45 P.M. on January 13th or at 12:40 A.M. on January 14th )
