“For years I had secretly been praying to the Lord for the grace to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land… I was aked to lead a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, to be a chaplain, I just had a tremendous experience, and this pilgrimage company 206 Tours… they do such a wonderful job. A 12-day Pilgrimage, and you see all the places and you get to the place and take out your bible and read what happened there. It was just tremendous. The whole pilgrimage comes to a conclusuion in the tomb of Jesus… As I’m proclaiming the gospel, it said “they laid His body in this tomb” – the word ‘this’ is added. As I’m proclaiming that gospel in front of the entrance, it was so overwhelming – this is the place… this is the place where it happened! And although I’d never been there before, I felt like I had been there before. And I started to realize that in every Mass, every Mass, we’re in contact with that place.”
