Christian Pilgrimage Israel

The pilgrimage is a deep biblical process. It takes its roots in the tradition of the patriarchs and prophets.

It takes its meaning in the Christ Jesus, God made man.

Its action and message shows that his entire life is a pilgrimage, an ascension towards the father in which he attracts all the men.

This is how Jesus teaches its interlocutors to always go beyond a too materialistic conception of the pilgrimage.

“Your word is the light of my steps, a lamp on my road” Psalm 118.

Tourism of the World is incorporated within the biblical approach of the pilgrimage: the word of God is the essential food, the manna in the desert, the light on the road, and the guide leading to the evangelization.
