"Spiritual bar crawl"

Day 5

We began our "spiritual bar crawl" this morning at the Primacy of Peter (where Jesus gave His authority to Peter: "feed my sheep" - Jn 21).  It is believed that this rock is where the Lord ate breakfast with the Apostles post-Resurrection.  'Mensa Christi': meal with Christ. 

One of the friars, Fr Mark, praying by the Sea of Galilee.  He was just stationed at Catholic U. in DC, and will be stationed at the home parish in the Northeast of one of our pilgrims!  Small, small world.  And, what a shot. 

Then, traveled a couple minutes down the road to Peter's house in Capernaum where Jesus lived during his public ministry.

And, just walk a few steps up to the roof (of Peter's house)...and, it's where the friends of the paralytic lowered him down to be healed by Christ!

And, then, a few steps more to my favorite spot: the Synagogue where Jesus taught about the Eucharist (John 6).  Bucket list is complete! 

Mass at the Sea of Galilee close to where the Lord multiplied the loaves and fish.  Awesome.

Boat ride on Sea of Galilee; "Jesus Jam" broke out with music and dancing

Mount of Beatitudes where we stayed for three nights; walked the grounds each night praying the rosary, and would stop to look down the hill and think, "that's where He preached the Sermon on the Mount".  Wow.

By the Sea of Galilee; the steps lead up to the spot where Jesus was sitting before he healed the man possessed by demons and sent the demons into the swine
