This May I’ve been enormously blessed to be on an “Off the Beaten Path” pilgrimage to Jordan and Israel with Lino Rulli from SiriusXM’s The Catholic Channel (ch. 129) and a fun group of pilgrims.

Here is the homily given at the site of the home of Lazarus, Mary, and Martha in Bethany. The gospel was from John 11.1-43, which is the raising of Lazarus.

You’ll likely notice something sort of strange with this homily… the nearby mosque had *just* begun the call to prayer as I was wrapping up the gospel, and this continued through most of the homily. Hopefully you enjoy the musical accompaniment. :)
