Take an Armchair Pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Fr. Mitch Pacwa



Did you ever wish that you could travel to the Holy Land for a pilgrimage?

For most of us moms, that’s a pretty unlikely prospect. But the good news is that there’s a new book out that will give you a great glimpse into the life and experiences of a pilgrim. In The Holy Land: An Armchair Pilgrimage, not only will you virtually travel to Israel, but you’ll do so in the company of the amazing Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. We know Fr. Mitch for his amazing work on EWTN and his other books, but he has also lead 59 groups to the Holy Land. When you travel with Fr. Mitch, you don’t only see the sites — you come into deeper communion with the spiritual beauty of the Holy Land. That is what is truly conveyed in  The Holy Land: An Armchair Pilgrimage. With Pope Francis’ upcoming trip to Israel, the timing for this book couldn’t be more perfect.
