Catholic radio host to lead pilgrimage to Egypt and Jordan

CNA Staff

Teresa Tomeo

Ave Maria Radio talk show host Teresa Tomeo will travel to Egypt and Jordan this February to explore biblical history and obtain a deeper sense of the “universal Church.”


Along with Catholic travel guides Steve and Janet Ray, who also produce “The Footprints of God” video series, the group will explore the baptismal site of Jesus, the prison of John the Baptist, the Red Sea and Mount Nebo.


Commenting to Catholic Womanhood, Tomeo said that though the world is “a very big place geographically ... faith wise it is really a very small world.”


“What I love about taking these trips to far off lands is that we really get the sense of what Catholic is all about as in the universal Church - especially when it comes to the Mass,” she added. “We are part of one Church and one family and regardless of where I am I can always call the Church home.”


Tomeo also noted how important it is for American Catholics “to travel to parts of the world where holding on to your faith is a constant challenge.”


Remarking that Catholics in the U.S. do face cultural challenges as well as occasional roadblocks from the government, “red martyrdom,” is not an issue, she said. However, “in places such as the Middle East, being a Catholic could very easily cost someone not only their livelihoods but their lives.”


“I don't think we have a true appreciation of what that is like and how much some people are willing to risk for the love of Jesus and the Sacraments.”


Catholics are invited to join Tomeo on the February 6 – 15 pilgrimage. It will be the talk show host's first time to Egypt and Jordan.


“I am really looking forward to visiting Egypt; to walk in the footsteps of Moses and the Israelites, to follow the Holy Family's flight to Egypt.”


Tomeo said that “this will be a different pilgrimage than our many incredible visits to the Holy Land but there are so many holy sites to discover and I am very much looking forward to the Baptismal site in Jordan and the amazing city of Petra.”
