That's pilgrim Leslie leading the way at the Israel Museum yesterday afternoon. This morning we leave early for the Judean desert and some time of prayer and contemplation while looking down on the Jericho road, where, as Jesus told his followers, a good man from Samaria was walking along one day, minding his own business. We'll visit the Mount of Temptation and then head north to Galilee.
For our two nights as guests of the Sisters of Nazareth, we'll be without easy access to wireless. I'll check in as often as I can, and our other pilgrims will post on Facebook to the extent allowed by the gracious mercy of their international data plans. In the meantime, pray for us, as we shall for you this evening, in the Basilica of the Annunciation, in the home town of our LORD. And pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
