About Fr. Jacques Philippe:

Father Jacques Philippe was born on March 12, 1947, in Lorraine, France. After studying mathematics in college he spent several years teaching and doing scientific research. He joined the catholic com-munity of the beatitudes and became the first priest to be ordained in April 1985. Father Jacques spent his first years as a community member in Jerusalem and Nazareth. With over half of a million of his books sold on topics such as: prayer, interior freedom, and peace of heart; his writings have be-come classics of modern catholic spirituality. He preaches retreats regularly in France, Italy, Spain, and the USA. He has consolidated his main retreat themes into seven books on spirituality. Currently, his time is now mostly devoted to prayer, writing and touring worldwide. His preaching genuinely helps people to pray, find hope and peace. When fr. Jacques is not on mission, he resides in a hermitage in France where he writes books.

Chris Stewart
About Sr. Magdalit Bolduc:

Sister Magdalit has served as a consecrated sister of the catholic community of the beatitudes for 28 years. She is bilingual in Hebrew. Sister Magdalit lived in Israel for twelve years, and has guided pilgrimages there for over 22 years. Last April, she was appointed liaison to the Jewish community for the archdiocese of Denver, and she joyously developed a ministry talking to Catholics about the Jewish identity of the Christian faith, and talking to Jews about Catholicism. Given her extreme knowledge of the bible, Jewish tradition and the holy land itself, she will certainly provide a deeply prayerful pilgrimage experience.

Special Invitation from Sr. Magdalit

Dear future pilgrims!

How often have you thought about the Holy Land and said: "One of these days I am going!" I believe that there is a time and a moment for each of us, set by God for such a spiritual adventure. Why do Father Jacques and I feel so much about Israel? Mostly out of compassion. We lived there, him six years, I twelve. Both of us have been quenched there, in the depths of our soul. I would add that the message of Father and his charism to bring people to prayer is amazing. I regret that we cannot bring more people every year and I pray God to give Father health to go on a long time doing this. Our pilgrimage will be in three parts. In the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. I have noticed that often God the Father expresses Himself more in the desert; Jesus in Galilee, the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem. For this reason, we will scout the three regions. You will be led in the chronology of the Scriptures, and encounter God, as Abraham and the Patriarchs did in the Negev. In the second part Jesus will reach out to you in Galilee, the places where he lived, walked, ministered in, and the landscape he admired from his childhood to his public life. Finally, in Jerusalem, the Holy Spirit may become a real Person for you, through the fire he will kindle in your heart. Each soul is unique and might not follow this pattern exactly, but I know that each one of you invited to this pilgrimage will encounter the Father at some point, because this is His will, out of love for you.

Already you are in His Providence, which is why you are reading these words. Our journey is not designed to test your physical endurance but it will. We will eat well, stay in good hotels, and travel in an air-conditioned bus; however, you do have to either be in shape or be willing to stay in the bus if you become tired as there will be hour-long walks every day. May I tell you a story? Once I complained to the Lord: "why do I have to live in Exile from Jerusalem?" He replied within me: "If you weren't abroad, out of Israel, who would tell my people to come to me?" May you be led in God's wisdom to make a good choice of the how and when. I must add I am deeply touched that Father Jacques has agreed to lead again this spiritual journey. His trust is comforting to me. Both Pere Jacques and I consider it a joy and a duty to invite you. Know that we would be honored to be the ones to bring you 'home', to the Holy Land. Yours in Christ,

Sr. Magdalit

The Holy Land - In the Footsteps of Jesus:

If you desire to draw closer to Jesus of Nazareth, come, as we follow in His footsteps. Each day of your pilgrimage you will have time to renew and affirm your faith; to pray and reflect. The Scriptures will come alive as you visit Our Lord's homeland. You will be inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape, in addition to its rich historical heritage It is an encounter that has changed the lives of many pilgrims, an act of faith and prayer. Pilgrims have been traveling to the Holy Land for hundreds of years, and as part of your pilgrimage, we include many of the rich traditions that have evolved over time. The maxim at the entrance to the Church of the Nativity says: "We are hoping that: If you enter here as a tourist, you would exit as a pilgrim. If you enter here as a pilgrim, you would exit as a holier one." We pray that same will occur when you join 206 Tours pilgrimage.
