What's spurring the revival in pilgrimages to the Holy Land?
April 13, 2012
A trip to Israel is more than a vacation. It's a tour through biblical history, as well as an inner journey to meet Jesus. The people and places of the Holy Land testify to Him as a living Gospel account. On Catholic Focus, we take a pilgrimage to Israel. There, we go behind the scenes of Salt + Light's documentary "Within Your Gates". We also speak with Israel's Minister of Tourism, Stas Misezhnikov, who explains why the country is witnessing a revival of the pilgrimage tradition. For resources to plan your own pilgrimage, visit Holyland-Pilgrimage.org.
