I was on the road again the past two weeks. This time, I led a group of twenty six and visited Jordan and Israel for twelve days. We visited places like Wadi Rum and Petra in Jordan and many Christian Holy Sites in Israel. The photo above was taken from inside the bus as traveled through the King’s Highway from Petra to Mt. Nebo.
The formal reception held at Capitol Banquet Hall after the Thanksgiving Mass included a short program with some speeches and a dance. I have always held that the priesthood is always for the people…and even in this celebration, it is less about me and more about the people whom I have had the privilege of serving through the years.
