FFHL PILGRIMAGES

WHY A PILGRIMAGE?



Irejoiced, when they said to me: Let us go to the House of the Lord! And now our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem!”  – A song of Ascents, of David (Psalm 122)

What is it about this city that it has such a great attraction? What is it that makes a Christian pilgrim come to Jerusalem? Jerusalem is the heart of the Holy Land, the synthesis of the action of God for the good of the whole of humanity.

St. John Paul II expressed this in very moving words: “How many memories and images and how much passion and great mystery surround the word Jerusalem! For us as Christians, it represents the geographical point of union between God and men, between eternity and history.”


PILGRIMAGES TO BENEFIT THE HOLY LAND


A pilgrimage to the Holy Land enables you to experience first hand the beauty of the land where Jesus walked, and the sufferings of the Christians who live there. Below you can find upcoming Holy Land pilgrimages that benefit the Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land. Pilgrimages you can join that also benefit Christians in the Holy Land.
