Annual Episcopal Holy Land Pilgrimages?

An interesting proposal from the Armenian Archbishop of Baghdad, Emmanuel Dabbaghian: that all the world’s bishops make an annual pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

The Holy Land is a country of pilgrimage and is where the Lord revealed himself and lived among us. The Lord wishes to be visited, loved, consulted.

Archbishop Dabbaghian suggests the pope coordinate this, but would the pope himself be bound to visit as a gesture of leadership? Would you think such a gesture would stem the Christian exodus from the Middle East?

    If you do get the chance to get to the Holy Land, make sure you check out a cool new convenient service I ran across while planning my trip. is a unique service that is the first, and only, hop on-hop off service in the region AND it offers safe transport, reliable accommodation and side trips, accompanied by well-travelled, educated guides. It’s an incredible way to enjoy your adventure in the Holy Land & definitely worth taking the time to check out.

    Be sure to stay at the Notre Dame Centre. I’ll give the Legionnaries credit: they have vastly improved the facilities. I have stayed there 6 times since 1987 and the changes have been for the better.
