IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS CHRIST

with ST. JOSEMARIA

and BLESSED ALVARO DEL PORTILLO

SAXUM - Friends

Join the Friends of Saxum 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). 

 

Departing from: Boston Logan Airport *Other cities may be available at an additional cost

Walk the real Way of the Cross!  Sail the Sea of Galilee! Touch the Jordan waters!  Immerse yourself in the Gospels, visiting sites like the Annunciation in Nazareth, the Nativity in Bethlehem, the Last Supper, Calvary and the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem!  Scriptures come alive!  A solid spiritual program complements the pilgrimage.  Other cities: Caesarea, Haifa, Mt. Carmel, Cana (renew your wedding vows), Capernaum, Tabgha, Mt. Tabor, Jericho, Dead Sea, Ein Karem, Bethany and still so much more!!!  Our pilgrimage has unique features that will help make this journey more memorable.
