2016/04/08 聖地朝聖第八天 / Holy Land Pilgrimage, 8th Day

今天我們搭遊覽車回去約旦。是很長的路程。到達約旦之後,我們只參訪一個地方︰尼博山,在那裡天主允許梅瑟看應許之地。然後我們 去旅館吃晚飯。吃完就等第二天的來臨。0130小時我們就離開旅館去阿曼國際機場搭飛機到阿布達比。到了阿布達比我們轉機飛回馬尼拉。 這結束了我們聖地之朝聖。

但我要結束之前,讓我表示對一些人的謝意︰

我要感謝 The Pilgrims' Center 因了一個組織良好的朝聖之旅。一切都很順利。

我要感謝 Saher 我們朝聖的司機。他很安全和舒適的帶我們到耶路撒冷四周。他確實是一個很善良的人。

為 Morad 我們的當地導遊,一個很特別的感謝。他以前做過考古學家的工作,所以他介紹我們參觀的地方是很準確。而且大家都感覺到他的善良, 他的溫柔和親切關懷所有成員。他的幽默和對岳母的笑話讓我們高興,在我們勞累的旅途中感覺到輕鬆。我非常感謝 Morad 因為當他向我們說話, 他的信仰就會很明顯的出來。他是個虔誠信仰的人。我們會想念你 Morad。

為 Annalee,是她協調一切活動使我們的朝聖之旅愉快和順利。沒有她,一切都將是混亂的。謝謝 Annalee。

為 Fr. Manny Cruz,我們朝聖的專職神父,一個非常特別的感謝。他是一個很有靈修的人,所以在他給我們的會談中, 新的和深刻的靈修見解幫助我們加深我們的信仰。

當然了,謝謝對本朝聖團的所有成員。因了你們的基督信仰你們顯出了你們的親切,善良,樂於助所有人的精神,特別為那些老, 弱和需要身體上幫助的人。在這麼短的時間,我們都成了一個大家庭!

Today, we took the bus for Jordan. It was a rather long ride. When we reached Jordan, the only place we visited was Mount Nebo, the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land. After Mt. Nebo, we went to our hotel, took supper and then waited until the next day. At 0130 hours, we left the hotel for the Amman International Airport. Took our plane for Abu Dhabi. When we reached Abu Dhabi we transferred to another plane which took us back to Manila. This ends our pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

But before I finished this, thanks are in proper order:

I want to thank The Pilgrims Center for a well organized pilgrimage. Everything went just smoothly.

My thanks to Saher our driver who drove us around Jerusalem safely and comfortably. He indeed is a very kind man.

To Morad our local guide, a very special thank you. He used to work as an archeologist, so his introduction to the places we visited were accurate and to the point. And all felt his kindness and his tender and loving care for all the group members. His sense of humor and jokes about mother-in-laws enlivened our otherwise tiring trip. I am most grateful to Morad because when he spoke to us, his faith came out clearly. He is a man of deep faith. We will miss you Morad.

To Annalee who coordinated everything to make our pilgrimage pleasant and smooth. Without her, everything would be in chaos. Thank you Annalee.

To Fr. Manny Cruz, our chaplain, a very special thank you. He is a very spiritual person, so that in the talks that he gave us, new and deep spiritual insights helped us all deepen our faith.

Of course, thank you to all the members of this pilgrimage group. All of you showed your Christian faith by being nice, kind and helpful to all, especially to those who are old, weak and in need of some physical help. In so short a time, we all have become one big family!
