River Jordan – The Site of Jesus’ Baptism

Come on a virtual pilgrimage with Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox to the River Jordan!  We have chosen this destination because it is the site where Jesus, the Son of God was baptized by John as we read in the Gospels of Matthew (3:13-17), Mark (1:9-11), and Luke (3:21-22).   

During this Journey of Hope, you will discover the following: 

  • The significance of this River which has the lowest elevation of any river in the world and where it flows.  
  • Why is this River so important and visited by people from all over the world? 
  • What insights from this place will help us in our daily lives?   
  • Plus we will incorporate the virtue of Hope and how this virtue can lead us to live without fear. 

Jewel for the Journey

There is no place for selfishness and no place for fear! Do not be afraid, then, when love makes demands. Do not be afraid when love requires sacrifice. – St. John Paul II
