The Church of the Beatitudes at Tabgha

J. Gil

Our Lord had left Nazareth and was living in Capernaum, on the northwest shore of Lake Genesareth, where some of the twelve Apostles or their relatives had houses. The multitudes that the Gospel speaks of came to that small fishing village to find Jesus, but also went after him in other places in the surrounding district. One of the most notable of these was Tabgha. Tags: History, Holy Land, In the footprints of our Faith

Is “God” an unknown word?

Passing on the faith in today’s society is one of the challenges to Christians during this Year of Faith. Here we give the text of the conference presentation “Communicating Christian identity today,” by Jutta Burggraf. “I want to talk about passing on the faith. To children, to other family members, to friends, neighbours and coworkers. We want to dialogue with everyone.” Tags: Faith, God, Communication

Lake Genesaret and Tabgha: the Church of the Primacy of St Peter

J. Gil

About three kilometers west of Capernaum, according to Christian traditions, was the place where Jesus multiplied five loaves and two fishes to feed a vast multitude; it was here that he gave the Sermon on the Mount; and appeared to his Apostles after the Resurrection, bringing about the second miraculous catch of fish and confirming St Peter as Head of the Church.

A village named Emmaus

J. Gil

Christ’s resurrection in the early hours of Sunday morning is a fact that the Gospels state clearly and firmly. The first testimonies to the fact of the empty tomb were offered by the holy women and the Apostles Peter and John. One that held a special meaning for St Josemaria was Christ’s appearance to the disciples at Emmaus, described in moving detail by St Luke.

The Temple at Jerusalem

J. Gil

For Christians Jerusalem, the Holy City, holds the most precious memories of our Savior’s life on earth, because it was here that Jesus died and rose again from the dead. It was also the scene of his preaching and miracles, and of the institution of the Blessed Eucharist. Tags: Faith, History, Holy Land, In the footprints of our Faith
