Vocations “come and follow me”

Pilgrims in the Land of the Holy One

And he said to them: Follow me…

A pilgrim is a traveler: not just any traveler, but a man, a woman in search of the profound sense of their own being in the world. The pilgrimage is therefore a voyage: not just any voyage, but the path every man and woman towards the encounter the Lord.
As the people of Israel followed the Lord to the Promised Land; as the disciples followed Jesus through the streets of Palestine; so we also travel in our sandals to meet the Lord: from the desert to Bethlehem, from Bethlehem to Nazareth, from Nazareth to Jerusalem, we search for God in Faith and in History, traversing, with the Bible in hand, the places in which he was manifested for the chosen people and for everyone of us.
