I am truly honored and at the same time, humbled, to share my thoughts with you. I ask God to touch your hearts today through my words.
The Lord granted me one of the most special graces of my entire life. For three months, I was able to walk the Holy Land on foot, from the Red Sea to the border between Israel and Syria. Today I will begin to tell you about that experience, and I must say that it is the first time I have spoken publicly about it. For me, it is something that I still find very difficult to express in words. I know that nothing I can say today will do justice to what happened to me there, and I’m a little self-conscious about telling you what I experienced during those unforgettable days.
It is clear that I do not have the time or the capacity to share everything - it would be very long and very boring - so I would like to divide my presentation into parts. I will summarize briefly what my itinerary was from the time I set foot in Israel until the day I left. In the interest of time, I will condense the trip because if I told you all of the details, this presentation would never end. I would like to invite you to reflect on a few of the conclusions that I drew from my trip and that I think may be useful to you.
God Bless you,
