Sweet Tweets for 5/19/14 — Anticipating the Holy Land

Yes, you read that right. It’s Monday and we usually do “Sweet Tweets” on Friday, but I was literally offline having a “mountaintop” experience for the past four days. I was fortunate to lead a women’s retreat at the amazing Whispering Winds Catholic Camp and Conference Center. I’ll share more on that later, but for now I’m thrilled to be praying for a few friends who are heading to Israel, including our own Elizabeth and Marge Fenelon, who will be sharing some of her insights at CatholicMom.com. Do I wish I were going? It goes unsaid…

That’s why I’m happy that John has included some anticipatory Sweet Tweets about Pope Francis’ historic trip to the Holy Land. Through the beauty of social media, we’ll all be able to go along for the ride!
