Holy Land Pilgrimage

We are blessed to be on pilgrimage in the Holy Land with 206tours, Dr. Scott Hahn and five buses of pilgrims! We will update from Israel over the next ten days. Please feel free to leave prayer requests in the comments below. Today we are at Joppa:

Peter came to Joppa from Lydda to raise Tabitha (Dorcas) from the dead (Acts 9:36-42). While in Joppa, the apostle stayed at the house of Simon the Tanner. When Peter was praying on the roof, he had a vision of a large sheet filled with animals being lowered from heaven (Acts 9:43-10:23), signaling to him to go with the messengers from Cornelius. The Church of St. Peter marks the traditional site of Peter’s vision of the great sheet.
