Today the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of the Virgin Mary’s nativity. Mary’s life is a source of wisdom for all of us, particularly when we face uncertain seasons and moments in life. In this episode, Dr. Sri unpacks the mystery of Mary’s fiat, and shows us...
Is the Immaculate Conception just another example of Catholics exaggerating Mary’s role, putting her on par with Jesus? From the outside, some might look at Catholic Marian doctrines this way: Jesus is a king, so Catholics make Mary a queen. Jesus ascended into...
Two words about Mary from the Bible describe most of our lives in December: “in haste.” We run in haste to the mall, post office, grocery store. In haste, we rush to the office parties and pageants. We pack the bags, pack the car or race to get the house clean and...
Imagine a Pope approaching a statue of Mary, carrying a bullet in his hand, putting the bullet in Mary’s crown, and repeatedly saying to her, “You saved me…You saved me…” That’s what happened in 1982 when St. Pope John Paul visited the apparition site of...

You’re such an awesome dad!! You and your girls are so very blessed!!!!
When my family lived in Saudi due to my husband's job, I was a Girl Scout Leader and organized a FATHER DAUGHTER DANCE. I had a moment that I saw in the future when my husband would be dancing with our daughter at her wedding.
Wonderful pictures💝 Beautiful daughters!❤❤❤
Beautiful family! You are blessed!
Awesome!!! You guys look amazing. I hope she recovers quickly. Today I learned of an amazing blessing: you are coming to St Mary Magdalene in Simpsonville, SC. God willing, will meet you there!!!
Such a special event. Beautiful girls💗

Making meaningful and lasting memories, thanks dad for the love..
I wish I could go on one of these pilgrimages but my decision not to use vaccines that are based on aborted children keeps me from flying internationally. I tried twice to go to the Holy Land. The first time my brother and my mother in law were both dying and the second time I broke my ankle two months before the time set to go, both before Covid.
May all your lives be blessed more and more. In Jesus mighty name Amen
It sounds like a beautiful trip and experience! Someday I hope to experience this myself. Have a safe trip home!
Thanking God for the blessing of your heart and teaching this past week, it was such a faith and life changing trip! So grateful, enjoyed our group so much and the journey we had together and individually. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Saddened by the violent events In Jerusalem, but I understand better the very fragile balance that is needed among the faiths. And the fact that they live on top of each other and share the holy sites. If you speak to Adrian, tell him we’re praying for peace between his people and the Palestinian people—for once and forevermore. I would still say I felt safer there than in New Orleans where I go next to babysit.
I do hope to join you there in a future tour!
What a great trip
Matthew 6:5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.”
I remember grappling for place to sit, weak in my knees I sat there as I unconsolably cried my eyes out for like 45 minutes till a priest I think it was came and prayed over me. I went solo in 2000, so it was possible! I wanna go again!!
You are so blessed 🙏🏽🙏🏽
How I wish I could go on a pilgrimage with you!
Excellent!! I hope they appreciate how lucky they are. When we were there with you in 2019 the wait was projected to be 6+ hours so the group did not go into the tomb. I have been there before, so it wasn't as much a loss for me as for some who were on their only or first trip.
Made this trip in November 2022. Such a special experience. 🙏
What an experience of a lifetime
Amen! Great blessing to visit such sacred places.🙏
A very beautiful and holy experience all at once and sounds perfect how awesome that we are so blessed to be Catholic to be living walking on these holy ground where our Lord God Saviour Jesus Christ's Passion and Death and Resurrection occurred.
Wow! What a spectacular blessing for you and your group. Thanks for sharing this wonderful opportunity. ❤️
Andrew Gregersen !!! I'd LOVE to do this pilgrimage with Dr. Sri someday!!!!
What a blessing!!
God Bless you
amazing blessing!!! can’t wait to go one day!!! ❤️🙏🕊✝️🌹
I was there in November and the crowds at the tomb was out the door long.
This is amazing!
Please pray for me and my family! For healing!
Thanks so much for sharing
We head over in three weeks. How are the crowds? I was told that this summer they were very light.
A most blessed experience 💚🙏 (with Fr. Calloway in May of 2015)
what a Blessing
How much do one of these trips cost and how does one sign up?
A pilgrimage to the Holy Land definitely changes the way we read and hear Scripture. I’m a “crier;” so I tended to cry everywhere we went. After returning home, I think I cried at every Mass for 6 weeks. I could close my eyes and place myself right back where that particular Scripture took place. Even words of a song could start the tears flowing. We went right before Holy Week…so you can imagine what a mess I was!
Remembering this pilgrimage that my son Josiah and I shared with you in November 2019 - just before the pandemic hit! It was an incredible blessing, and I made some lasting friendships during that week. Believe it or not, Josiah turns 21 on the 18th - he was only 17 back then! I hope you are having a fabulous trip, and say hello to Leslie and Tim Wells for me! 💒🙏🏻❤️
You are correct. The scriptures and the rosary mysteries come alive after you’ve been to the Holy Land because you’ve been to those places. Best trip I ever took. 🙏🙏🙏
Please … Pray for my granddaughters & grandson 🙏
Sounds like an amazing Ed, glad you were able to enjoy with family!
Thanks for sharing. So precious
Thanks you so much for sharing these beautiful photos! I have dreamed of a trip to the Holy Lands…magnificent! May God bless everyone on pilgrimage with many graces! ❤️🙏🏻
One day I will be able to make this pilgrimage!! I pray it will be sooner than later. What a blessing! Thank you for sharing
Oh how I long for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Dont know how it will work out as i am very feeble and cannot walk much distance due to joint pains specially the knee pain. May God's hand of protection and abundant blessings be upon those who are going and being blessed.

Looks like a fun group of pilgrims.
So meaningful, nothing compares with this trip to the Holy Land.
Reminded me of one of my pictures
Thank You for sharing
Oh my gosh. I have always wanted to go.
Very beautiful and blessed 🙏🏼
Amen <3 Thank You Lord, for all things <3
What a blessing
Wow! I have got to do this trip!
To be able to be in the Holy Land would be a game changer. But to be there with you with your knowledge of the New and O.T. would make that trip even a better understanding of the Bible and more rewarding. I have listened to many of your talks on FORMED and know how the O.T. prefectures the New Testament and how the N.T fulfills the old. Thank you for what you do get closure to Jesus and to understand our faith better.
I would have liked this trip..especially seeing everyone in coats! I can't take the heat!
