Tuesday we visited the Jordan River where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. This is near Mt Nebo, where the Israelites entered the Holy Land--2 new beginnings in one area.
Then we visited the ruins of Herod's palace where John was beheaded. Here, Father Kamal relates what John experienced to how we get to expectations of God, when he often has other plans. (The McAllisters celebrated their 50th anniversary this year...and here they are, still in love.)
Gathered by the Holy Spirit, we worship God and, transformed by Christ’s love, we go forth into the world to love and serve with joy
