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 Latin Patriarchate in Jerusalem, otherwise known as the Co-Cathedral of the Most Holy Name of Jesus. The Mass was simply the Mass of the day (Wednesday of the 6th week of Easter), and — this seems to be a theme — we were a little pressed for time due to unforeseen circumstances. Therefore the homily is a little short. (And there was much rejoicing. ?)

The readings can be found here. (
