The current and ancient history of the Holy Land contains
many lessons for all of us.
Current events in Israel, Palestine and the Holy Land are, by turns, fascinating, horrifying, and spellbinding, and frustrating, among other things. But they are not simple or understandable as a black or white situation.
The Holy Land contains at least 7000 archaeological sites left behind by the ruling empires and dynasties over the centuries.
By the Phoenicians, the Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the the Arab-Islamic Dynasties, the Crusader Kingdoms, and by the Ottomans.
By The Pharoahs, King David, King Solomon, Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, Persian Kings Cyrus and Darius, King Herod, and Salah al-Din (Saladin).
They are all waiting for you to explore, learn from, and contemplate. Come visit the places where it all happened and where it is all happening.

And Learn from the Grassroots About a Preventable Calamity in Progress.
Learn about the flight of Christians from the Holy Land . . . a flight in such proportions that it may
soon eradicate all living Christian communities from the Holy Land and end
their 2,000 year old presence there to the detriment of us all: Christian
and non-Christian, religious and secular!
Leaders of all denominations agree that your visit can make a difference.
I invite you to come to the Galilee. When you come back, you will never read the Bible the same way you used to read it. You will relate to places, to people, to events. The Bible becomes something more lively than to read the Gospel from faraway, as an abstraction, ideas, ideology. There is no ideology in the Gospel. There is an invitation to follow the man from Galilee.
–Archbishop Elias Chacour
If we have no sense or appreciation of who we are and where we came from, how can we call ourselves Christians?–Father Peter Vasko
A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is more than a religious tour, it is a homecoming. We were welcomed with open arms by the people. … I have come away with a better sense of my own faith and the struggles of the people in Israel and Palestine. Yet most powerful are the voices I hear calling me to return, to come home –A Student on his visit to the holy land
. . . for me, it’s simply the earth. The landscape. Those great biblical panoramas which have been home to peoples over millennia. Certainly it is a setting that bears the wounds of conflict. And it can be punishingly hot. But there, in the raw beauty of the natural landscape, a mystery speaks. It whispers that these rocks matter. Dust and rocks and grapevines and olive branches matter.
