Thank you to everyone who journeyed with John.
John's journey to the Holy Land concludes with an update from Los Angeles. Thank you for joining him on the journey!
While the formal pilgrimage has come to an end, John does take heart in Fr. George Williams’ words from Day 8: “This pilgrimage will play out in your lives for days, months, years.” He writes: may this be so for me, for you, and for each of my fellow pilgrims.
Walk with me; Be here with me; Watch and pray; Watch and pray …

“This pilgrimage will play out in your lives for days, months, years,” said Fr. George Williams, SJ, in his opening comments of this morning’s talk.
John's journey to the Holy Land continues in Jerusalem and Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus.
An uptick in violence in the Holy Land causes a slight change in the itinerary for Day 6.
