Thanks for the Journey

       Yesterday before noon we rode onto the familiar campus of Mundelein Seminary.  It is hard to believe that we have been gone since the beginning of December.  All of us are excited to be home, and to spend some time relaxing before we begin our next set of classes in March.
       Looking back, it is incredible to see all that the Lord has done in and through us in the last 3 months.  The people, sites, and experiences resonate in our hearts, reminding us of the encounters with Christ that happened each day, each moment, while we were in the Holy Land.  However, in those moments Christ taught us something important.  We are blessed to have been in the Holy Land, to encounter Christ there.  But we need not be there to see Him, to talk with Him, or to serve Him.  We encounter Christ each day when we encounter our neighbors and even when we encounter strangers we have never met before.  What each of us brings back from the Holy Land is different, but we all bring an awareness of Christ's presence breaking into our lives each and every moment.  God, please give give us eyes to see You.
      Thank you for taking this journey with us.  You have been in our prayers, and we appreciate the prayers you have said for us.  We hope that your experience of the Holy Land through this blog brought Christ into your daily life in a new way.  Keep looking for Him, because He is always present to each of us.
