Two weeks were spent in places whose names I used to only pronounce with awe: Nazareth, Bethlehem, Zion, Mount of Olives, Galilee, Capernaum, Cana of Galilee. I never dreamed that one day I would be able to see all these places with my own two eyes. Our group of pilgrims turned to be surprisingly wonderful. We had a surprising sense of group solidarity — the Gospel readings which we heard at every holy place and every town we visited miraculously united us all: we read the Gospel at every holy place.
