Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

Pilgrim's Guide Book Available! 

A Pilgrim's Guide to the Holy Sepulchre and Golgotha in Jerusalem will make a difference in your experience at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre!

We are happy that we can now make this 26 page booklet available to anyone who would like deeper insight into that pivotal moment of the Catholic faith: the location of Christ's death, burial and resurrection. The illustrations will show you how the tomb of Christ may have looked to those who passed by Golgotha on their way into Jerusalem. Many other views of the location throughout the centuries are included as well. 

To order, send a $10 check to Emily Cavins, PO Box 1533, Maple Grove, MN 55311 for the cost of the book and postage.

Detailed Book Description:

Archaeologist and Tour Guide, Emily Cavins has written this guide to aid pilgrims in unraveling the mystery of the current Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which at first visit seems to be a confusing mixture of structures and rooms unlike any church ever visited. This pilgrim's guide shows each phase of the Tomb of Christ and Golgotha from the First Century through the Crusader Era using illustrations by Valerie Woelfel that are drawn as though the viewer is standing in the courtyard of the current Church looking at the entrance. Valerie has also drawn several map diagrams of the different phases of Jerusalem from an aerial perspective to help the pilgrim understand the changes over the many centuries. Each chapter has a very brief synopsis about the illustration followed by a fuller description of each of the following eras:

 

  • the time of Christ
  • the time of the Roman Emporer Hadrian
  • the time of Constantine
  • the time of the Crusaders

 

followed by a numbered floor plan diagram of the current church with a key noting all of the main rooms, sites and chapels within the church as well as which Christian sect has jurisdiction of that spot. This booklet emphasizes the continuity of pilgrimage to this holy site and encourages the reader to enter in to the experience as though this place belongs to them. In the back of the guide, pilgrims can attach their own photo as a memento onto an illustration of the portals of the front entrance of the church. The text is fully footnoted.

Hi, I received my book and was very happy with it. The only problem is I ordered and paid for
(2) as the receipt shows. #681659. There was only 1 in the envelope. The 2nd one was for
my daughter Jennifer Addante who also was with us on our pilgrimage in January. Please send
out the second book at your convenience. Thank You, Donna Trapp

Hi Emily- My husband and I are so excited to go on the pilgrimage in just a couple of weeks! We have been running behind, and have been meaning to order a copy of your book- is there still time to do so? We live in Minneapolis.

Sincerely,
Heather Maehren
