I went seeking and was met. That was my favorite part. The first time was with my church in May 18 and the second time was a 2.5 month stay as volunteer summer 18. The Spirit here is beyond understanding. I highly encourage you to go open, free and with a child like wonder to really experience Magdala to the fullest. And to add no matter how you feel ask Jesus to meet you where you are and he will ! Who knows He might invite you to come back and volunteer as He did with me! The archeology is one of the most unique I saw in Israel, the “ Duc “ is also one the most Spiritually filling and beautiful churches I’ve ever been in. And the volunteers and staff are incredible! If you get to pick your tour guide try and get Celine or Father Kelly, although everyone there will take care of you wonderfully. Of all the places I saw in Israel, hands down this is the most special in my heart. Please when you go, as I said earlier go open and ask Him to meet you, I promise you will have an Encounter!! Take your time as you are there. I know there is so much to soak in and see in the Holy Land, but take some to rest and be Filled at Magdala!! If you are on a tour group try not to let the leader rush you through here. But if time is constrained , please don’t leave until you go to the Encounter Chapel ! God Bless you on your beautiful experience in Magdala !!

This virtual Pilgrimage and retreat was far most that I expected. Learning from the steps of Jesus right there where they ocurred, visiting sacred sites, attending masses, praying in team the mysteries of the Rosary. I will be eternally thankfull to the Magdala team. 31 days seeing the face of the Lord with the hand of Virgin Mary. Blessings for all the team! I really felt you were close to my heart during these 31 days, and you will continue to be. You have built a greater Magdala team now :-)

I wanted to express my most heartfelt appreciation to the Magdala Team for making this wonderful virtual pilgrimage possible. Every sight I saw and experience in this virtual pilgrim had brought me to a greater understanding and knowledge of my Catholic religion and the significant events in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. I have been to the Holy Land twice but not in a pilgrim – just joined bus tours. The experience is much different than with this virtual pilgrim. This virtual experience is so solemn – one can feel the presence of the Lord and Mother Mary. The virtual pilgrim had touched my heart most on the reflections and meditations of the Sorrowful Mysteries. The virtual pilgrim was extra ordinary I am so pleased with Kathleen Nichols our wonderful tour guide and Adam Pangan the camera man as well as Fr. Juan Solano for such a great organizer and wonderful tour guide. Their knowledge about the Holy Land are amazing. Thank you for sharing it to us.
