Holy Land Pilgrimage!  

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS CHRIST

with ST. JOSEMARIA

and BLESSED ALVARO DEL PORTILLO

- St. Josemaria Institute - 

SAXUM - Friends

Join the Friends of Saxum and the St. Josemaria Institute on this amazing and unforgettable Pilgrimage, and follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ! 

St. Josemaria Escriva wrote that: “to be Christ himself, we must see ourselves in him. It's not enough to have a general idea of the spirit of Jesus' life; we have to learn the details of his life and, through them, his attitudes. And, especially, we must contemplate his life, to derive from it strength, light, serenity, peace. 

“When you love someone, you want to know all about his life and character, so as to become like him. That is why we have to meditate on the life of Jesus, from his birth in a stable right up to his death and resurrection” (Christ is Passing By, no. 107).
