February 2-11, 2023 | Priest Retreat to the Holy Land | Archdiocese of New York
My brother priests:
Our last pilgrimage to Portugal and Spain in February 2019 seems like a distant memory. Little did we know that one year later the world would be facing a pandemic and we would take on unimaginable challenges to our priestly ministry. But we persevered through several months of lockdown doing whatever was humanly possible, and not without divine asistance, to maintain a connectedness to our parishes and communities. In the wake of so much suffering and difficulties, I’d like to think Jesus is inviting us, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” Recall that it was also in the Holy Land where the Lord would often withdraw from the work of His Father for some peace and solitude. I hope we might do the same.
Fraternally in Christ,
Timothy Cardinal Dolan
