And we’re on our way … (updated)

[Corrects information in first paragraph and adds Scripture reference]

By Christopher Gunty

We have departed the hotel for our last day of pilgrimage. This morning takes us to Mount Carmel, where Elijah challenged Ba’al. The first reading at the Mass today told the story of Elijah’s epic battle (1Kg 18:20-40).

A few more stops en route to Jaffa and Tel Aviv for our airport departure this evening.

Pray for traveling mercies. – Mount Carmel, Israel, Oct. 21, 2010
