  • Don’t worry. You’re coming too.

    A week from now, thirty-nine of us will be setting out on our pilgrimage to the Holy Land. And you’re coming.

    After a midnight departure from Newark Liberty and a mid-afternoon arrival in Israel, we’ll settle in for the night

    in Tel Aviv, right beside the Mediterranean Sea. We’ll have flown for eleven hours, covered 5686 miles, lost

    seven hours of daytime, and what will have to show for it? Not a lot, at least not right away. We’ll have gone to

    all that trouble just to offer Mass with folks from New Jersey. A group of pilgrims from Saint Paul’s in Ramsey

    are arriving the very same afternoon we are, and so we’ll celebrate the Eucharist together that evening.

    But the next morning we’ll begin three or so days of wandering around the Sea of Galilee, followed by four days

    in and around Jerusalem. Bethlehem, Nazareth, Cana, Capernaum. Mount Tabor and the Mount of the

    Beatitudes. The Via Dolorosa and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. And much more.

    They say that a pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a little like reading a “fifth” gospel. All the places

    we’ve been reading and hearing about all our lives in church … Everything “comes alive” for you as

    you walk where Jesus of Nazareth walked—where he lived and died and rose. And that’s the plan: that

    our faith be enlivened, that our hope be strengthened, and that our love be deepened. And not just

    “our” faith and hope and love. Not just the faith and the hope and the love of the thirty-nine of us

    traipsing around Israel. But yours too. Because you see, every step of the way, we’ll be

    praying for you.

    We’ll be praying that we all might learn (again) the lesson—and this time take it to heart. Jesus of

    Nazareth would be the first to insist. In fact, he’s said, almost in so many words, “If being close to

    me is what you want, don’t go to where I was born. Go instead to the hungry. If you want to be

    close to me, don’t go to where I died. Go instead to the sick.” Jesus has made it quite clear: the way

    to him is by way of the littlest and the least.

    “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,

    I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,

    I was a stranger and you invited me in,

    I needed clothes and you clothed me,

    I was sick and you looked after me,

    I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

    While we’re away, please do a little of that. And when we get back, remind us to do it too. Remind us that the

    real pilgrim road leads straight to the needy—and then right to his heart.

    Pray for us. We will for you.

    Peace and love.

    Fr. Colin
