I'll be in the Holy Land from January 17th until January 27th, leading a pilgrimage to the holy places, as I have done a number of times in the past. I never tire of visiting the Holy Land, praying where our Lord prayed and walking where the apostles walked with Him. Daily Mass will be celebrated according to the Anglican Use (of course!) in most of the important shrines and churches — Annunciation, Holy Nativity, Mount of the Beatitudes, Transfiguration, Gethsemane, Holy Sepulchre, and several other places. I hope it gives many of you pleasure to know such prayers as the Collect for Purity and the Prayer of Humble Access will be echoing off the walls of those magnificent places!
I will be giving special thanks for the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, and praying for the implementation of Anglicanorum coetibus in those places still waiting. I'll carry the intentions of all who are preparing to enter an Ordinariate in my heart.
