We stop in Haifa where we will visit Stella Maris, the Carmelite Monastery which houses the Madonna of Mt. Carmel. We continue on to Muhraka where Elijah confronted the false prophets of Baal and called for fire from heaven. We travel up the coast to Caesarea.

We continue on to the Cave of Betrayal and the Cave of Assumption of Mary to Heaven. We visit Church of the Pater Noster. Tiled panels bearing the Lord's Prayer beam from the walls of this church and cloister. Queen Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine, believed this to be the location where Jesus taught the Lord's Prayer to his disciples, and she arranged for a church to be built here. The mosaic tiles are decorated with the Lord's Prayer in 132 languages, though it depends on how you count: a number of languages are also represented in Braille. We visit the Chapel of the Ascension from where Jesus ascended to Heaven. We drive to Shepherd's Fields (Luke 2:8-20) where the Angels announced the birth of Jesus and celebrate Mass.

After breakfast we drive to visit Bethany (John 11:41-44) where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. We then reach Jericho, the ancient Canaanite city destroyed by the power of God (Josh. 5-6). It is the oldest known inhabited city in the world. It was in Jericho that Jesus encountered Zacchaeus (Lk. 19). We will enjoy a splendid view on the city and of Mt. Temptation (Luke 4:1-13), where Jesus fasted and was tempted by Satan. Our next stop is at Qumran, the site where the Dead Sea scrolls were unearthed.

May 22 : Via Dolorosa - Holy Sepulcher - Western Wall - Mt. Zion - St. Peter in Gallicantu

This morning we wake very early for one of the highlights of our trip. As the sun rises we retrace the last steps of Jesus on Good Friday. As we walk along the Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrow), through the Old City we will pray along the Stations of the Cross as we walk the same path Jesus took. We visit St. Anne's Church, the home of the Virgin Mary and her parents Saints Joachim and Anne. We will see the Ecce Homo where Pilate proclaimed "Behold the man…” We reflect on the greatness of His sacrifice as we arrive at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher for Mass. We continue to the Western Wall (the most holy place for Jews). We exit at Mt. Zion gate to visit the Upper Room (John 13:1-30), the location of the Last Supper and the Dormition Abbey where we believe the blessed Mary died.
