Last year when we were teetering on the brink of normal and 1984, I was chaplain for a Traditional Mass pilgrimage to the Holy Land. We had wonderful participants, whom I think of with fondness to this day. We visited the important places and, when we had Mass, we used special Mass Propers composed for those places.
The pilgrimage ended with Ash Wednesday and we returned to the States. COVID was breaking out in Israel at the time and already there was a ban on travel to Israel. The hotel we were originally booked, before we got upgraded, in Tiberias, wound up locked up because Korean pilgrims were suspected of having the Wuhan Devil.
God guided us through thick and thin and we had a fantastic pilgrimage, all with the Traditional Mass.
Along the way, I made super short videos.
Since we are one year out, I thought I would take you on a mini pilgrimage with those videos.
