CHENGANNUR: As the part of its Silver Jubilee Celebrations, Diocese of Chengannur is planning to conduct a Holy Land Pilgrimage in association with Royal OmaniaTours & Travels.
The Star of Bethlehem, Grotto of the Nativity, The Sea of Galilee, The White Synagogue of Capernaum, Jerusalem: Al- Aksa and Wailing Wall, The Church of the Holy sepulcher, Place of the Crucifixion; the Thirteenth Station, The Stone of Unction are the main stations of visit included in this pilgrimage.
“Two millennia have passed since the Annunciation to Mary of Nazareth, the event that marks the starts of Christian era. For two thousand years, a constant flow of pilgrims has been going to Holy Land to visit the sacred places where the Gospel was preached. They come to the city of Jerusalem which, St. Paul write, will be the center of the New Order” explains the Royal Omania Tours & Travels in their brochure.
“Pilgrimage is the best way to discover the Holy Land and understand the Gospels, reading passages at the sacred sites connected with them. A divine experience to discover a new you” says the organizers.
By joining the pilgrimage, you will feel Gods peace wash over you at the Sea of Galilee. Rejoice in Jesus’ victory over death at the garden tomb. Holy Land is considered to be the most important visitor attraction in the whole world.
Jesus chose this land into which to be born and live his life. His mother; his disciples, his first group of followers was all of this land. The people here are the small remaining community of the kinsfolk of Jesus, who have maintained a continuity of life here for the past 2000 years. The joy you carry in your soul from here, is impossible to be expressed in words.
Follow the footsteps of Jesus, seeing where he lived his short but eventful life. Be moved by the places you see and the people you meet. For many it’s the journey of a lifetime and one that holds a great spiritual significance. At the Holy Land, you can also learn about the roots of our faith and the evolution of different Christian denominations.
Those interested could join the trip and make this pilgrimage a memorable moment of your life.
