The Visitation – Ein Karim, Jerusalem

Come on a journey with Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox  to the hill country of Judea, near the ancient city of Jerusalem where the Virgin Mary travelled to visit and care for her cousin Elizabeth. During this program you will also learn about:

  • The Visitation as described in the Gospel of Luke
  • All the details related to Mary’s great act of charity
  • The Basilica of the Visitation, built over this holy site

Jewel for the Journey
Celebrating the martyrdom of St. John the Baptist also reminds us – Christians in our own times – that we cannot give into compromise when it comes to our love for Christ, for his Word, for his Truth. The Truth is the Truth; there is no compromise. The Christian life requires, as it were, the ‘martyrdom’ of daily fidelity to the Gospel; the courage, that is, to allow Christ to increase in us and to direct our thoughts and actions.                   Benedict XVI
