Our Lady of Guadalupe is the one apparition of Our Lady that is still with us. I’d like for you to join me on an educational pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe. You might be nervous about traveling to Mexico, but the New Saint Thomas Institute has teamed up with 206 Tours to provide a first class pilgrimage with experienced Catholic tour guides, Catholic priests to say Mass for us and hear confessions, Spanish translators, clean coaches, clean water, great food, and your hotel in the nicest neighborhood of Mexico City.

Please watch this video where I explain this unique pilgrimage and show you photos of our itinerary (and there’s a coupon discount code):

I’m honored to a faculty member for the Rome Experience for seminarians. I’ll be teaching a 18 class course in Rome for seminary credit based on my book The Eternal City: Rome and the Origins of Catholic Christianity.

About The Rome Experience

The Rome Experience is a cultural and spiritual pilgrimage for diocesan seminarians.

Founded in 2007 at the request and under the direction of the Bishops Advisory Board, the Rome Experience provides seminarians preparing for the diocesan priesthood the opportunity to contemplate and nurture their divine call to the priesthood and to holiness as they pray and study in the heart of the Catholic Church, beside the Chair of St. Peter, and at the tombs of the saints and martyrs.

The program follows the Vatican Congregation for the Clergy’s Directory for the Ministry and the Life of the Priests (2013), and is inspired by the thought and work of St. Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei, who dedicated many years of his life to caring for the spiritual and human needs of diocesan priests, and remains a spiritual guide for many priests today.

A cultural and spiritual pilgrimage for diocesan seminarians

Through the Rome Experience, seminarians have the opportunity to pray and learn at some of the holy and historically significant sites of Christianity, including the Shrine of St. John Vianney in Ars, France, the major basilicas of Rome, the Catacombs, and many more.

As a pilgrimage experience, The Rome Experience encourages the seminarians prayerfully to discover the hand of God in his Church and to receive a stimulus for their spiritual lives and ongoing formation. As pilgrims, they will benefit more deeply from:

Spiritual Formation

5-day retreat in Ars, France
Daily schedule that includes Holy Mass, the liturgy of the hours, mental prayer, and the Holy Rosary
Sacrament of Penance, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and spiritual meditations
Living in close proximity to the Holy Father
Pilgrimages to churches and tombs of the martyrs and saints

Seminarians from across the United States
Daily prayers, meals, and classes
Movie nights
Sports and hiking excursions
Cultural & Intellectual Formation

Being immersed in the cultural history of the Church
Experiencing the beauty of the Church’s art and architecture
Academic courses:
History of the Church and Papacy
Biblical Theology
Christian Art and Architecture
Expert instructors from the United States and Rome
Guided tours and excursions to religious and cultural sites
Papal liturgies and audiences
Visits to Vatican Congregations
The Rome Experience is designed to complement existing programs of formation in diocesan seminaries for students who have completed at least their first year of theology.
