“In the Footsteps of the Holy Family”

22nd September – 28th September, 2023


Vassula Ryden and the True Life in God Associations take pleasure in inviting you to join us on a Pilgrimage to the beautiful country of Egypt; a country of religious significance as it was the country where the Holy Family took refuge to escape Herod’s tyranny. Egypt is also a land of Biblical references as well as the land of Ascetic Saints who spent their lives in the desert. It is also considered a country with an outstanding historical civilization and culture.

“Egypt, We tread on your soil and incense raised in heaven as we passed by; have you not read in Scriptures: ‘Ambassadors will come from Egypt1, why, did you not know that I have anointed you as well?2 no less than the height of heaven over earth is the greatness of My Love for you; may your soil continue to produce food and keep you cheerful;” (TLIG Message, October 16, 2000)

1 Ps. 68:31.
2 Our Lord made me understand that Egypt too, as the Holy Land, should be considered as Holy. Our Lord made me understand that Egypt protected the Holy Family when They had fled there. Egypt fed and gave drink to Them, but mainly protected Them and God never forgets a good gesture.

“Please do not forget that the Pilgrimages are pleasing to our Lord; they are done mainly for our priests to have a foretaste of unity that our Lord desires. I ask each Association to make an extra effort to invite clergy to this Pilgrimage. Those who do not have a priest could perhaps cover the cost of one of our VIPs. Any contribution towards the clergy is appreciated. I have missed seeing you all these years due to the pandemic. I look forward to seeing you again in Egypt!

Yours in Christ,

“Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you…” (Matthew 2:13).

We will be staying at a 5 star Hotel, (the magic of it is that it is situated on the Nile), and at outstanding Hotels in Dahab located on the Gulf of Aqaba near the Red Sea. Our Pilgrimage will take us on a unique spiritual tour of the most historically significant and sacred Christian sites in Cairo, following the Steps of the Holy Family.

We will also visit St. Catherine’s Monastery, which is considered the oldest continuously inhabited Christian Monastery of the world. While there, pilgrims can also choose to climb Mt. Sinai, and enjoy the spectacular sunrise at the top of the Mountain where the Ten Commandments were given to Moses, according to the Book of Exodus. While in Dahab people can also enjoy the pleasant waters for swimming as well as enjoy coral reefs.
