Goodbye Galilee

As community of the novitiate, we started the New Year 2016 with our farewell trip in the Holy Land for two days.
The first day we visited Haifa, the Baha’i Garden, the Stella Maris Lighthouse and the Carmelite Monastery.
The second day we visited Nazareth, the tiny Galilean village of Nein (Lk. 7:11-17), Mount Tabor, (Mt. 17, 1-9), Safed one of the four holy cities in Israel and then we came down to Tabgha, Tiberias Lake and we ended our day in Jericho. After that we came back home with great joy, hoping that we will come back again to these amazing places where we feel Jesus walking with us as he did in those days.

This trip helps us to reflect on Jesus’ call and also to prepare ourselves for our retreat in preparation for the 20th of January when we will pronounce our first commitment as sisters of Sion.
