During this very trying time in world history faith is more important than ever to many people.  This episode highlights a very important path for Catholics wanting to connect with their faith via historical sites of religious importance.  Post pandemic travel your clients or even you, dear travelers, will find the information on this podcast useful.

Judy Yirsa has a heart for faith pilgrimages.  She wants to connect with her Creator in the places He performed miracles and revealed himself to his people.  Even her honeymoon was tracing the path of Fatima.

For Judy there is an aspect of God being elusive and the need to see and touch proof of his existence.  Judy plans these trips to deepen her own faith and the faith of her clients.  Enjoy this throw back to “Perfect Paths For Catholic Pilgrims”.

An estimated 168 Million Christians take faith based trips each year! The events of the Easter season and their locations are among the most popular destinations. As the Easter season approaches and Christians set off on their travels, maybe you are feeling left behind. Are you wondering where they are going? What are they doing? What is so important about Easter? Today’s episode will shed light on these locations and thier historic significance.

Judy Yirsa, St. Christopher Mission’s Travel, specialises is Catholic Pilgrimages for faith based groups and families.

The “Lara Croft” fashion accessory leg bag! — It’s an Amazon link – I’m not getting paid. Just pointing you to an option slightly more motorcycle gang and less “1989 Mom in Spandex”. In the words of Maui, “You’re Welcome!”Suede Backpack Bag | M&S Collection | M&S — The gold leather bag I took to Vegas. Despite feeling like I was always being robbed I think this was a good purchase. I like it more now that it is a little distressed.
