  • Description

    A PILGRIMAGE TO THE HOLY LAND FOR 140 DELEGATES TO THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL, WHICH HAS JUST ENDED ITS FIRST PHASE IN ROME. THE ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS SPENT FOUR DAYS IN ISRAEL THIS WEEK. THEY REPRESENTED FRANCE, ITALY, SOUTH AMERICA, ASIA AND AFRICA.

    THEY VISITED MANY OF THE LOCATIONS MADE FAMOUS BY THE MINISTRATION OF JESUS CHRIST. A GROUP OF THE PRELATES WENT IN PROCESSION TO THE CHURCH OF THE ANNUNCIATION IN NAZARETH. IT WAS IN NAZARETH - ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES - THAT THE VIRGIN MARY WAS TOLD BY THE ANGEL GABRIEL THAT SHE WOULD GIVE BIRTH TO THE HOLY CHILD. JESUS CHRIST GREW UP IN NAZARETH.

    THE BISHOPS THEN WENT TO CAPERNAUM. THEY SAW THE SITE OF THE RUINED SYNAGOGUE BUILT BY THE ROMAN CENTURIAN WHOSE SON, THE GOSPEL OF ST. MATTHEW RECORDS, WAS MIRACULOUSLY CURED OF PARALYSIS BY JESUS CHRIST.

    ON THE SHORES OF THE SEA OF GALILEE, A PROMINENT LOCATION IN BIBLICAL TIMES, THE BISHOPS SPRINKLED ONE ANOTHER WITH WATER. AND THEY SAW THE NEARBY CHURCH WHICH STANDS WHERE JESUS CHRIST MULTIPLIED A FEW LOAVES AND FISHES TO FEED THE HUNGRY CROWD WHO FOLLOWED HIM.
