First off, the Music is lovely and catchy! Reading the Bible and your book "Jesus" A Pilgrimage is now a new experience as you present and explain the places and the events that Jesus taught his disciples. Thank you Father Jim for this Virtual Holy Land pilgrimage!

Hi Jim & Matt & Jeremy, Greetings from MW. I'm a few days late, but I caught up to you this afternoon. I want to give you some people to pray for on the way. Lou Pascoe is very close to death, so please keep him in your pilgrimage prayers. I'll try to get you on the big screen in the rec room so the other guys can see you too. Bill
