Let’s go to Germany! Join Mary Jane Fox on a journey to Oberammergau, a Bavarian village known worldwide for its incredible Passion Play that has been presented every ten years since 1633. The Passion Play begins with the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, tells the Passion from the Lord’s Supper through to the Crucifixion, and ends with the Resurrection.
During our journey, you will hear about:
- Discover why this village has dedicated most of its population to the Passion Play performance since the 17th century
- Learn about their rich heritage
- Hear a reflection on the Passion of Christ

Jewel for the Journey:
“Christians must lean on the Cross of Christ just as travelers lean on a staff when they begin a long journey. They must have the Passion of Christ deeply embedded in their minds and hearts, because only from it can they derive peace, grace, and truth.” – St. Anthony of Padua
