Grace Filled Day by Craig Marion

Today, we visited Judea Ein Karem, the place of the Visitation and birth place of St John the Baptist.  We were blessed to attend Mass at Visitation Church.  We then traveled to Emmaus, mentioned in Luke, Chapter 24.  This holy place is maintained by the Community of the Beatitudes.  After visiting Emmaus we traveled to Jaffa where there is a church dedicated to St. Peter, this church overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.  We were blessed to read from the Acts of the Apostles, right in front of the Church.  After this visit we had lunch in the city.  We then traveled to St George's Church and were able to pray beside his tomb.  The day was filled with many graces, we were blessed with good weather and great fraternity.
