It may sound cliché, but Fr. Mitch Pacwa’s latest work, The Holy Land: An Armchair Pilgrimage, really is the next best thing to being there. That’s because Fr.

Mitch will no doubt inspire you to finally make the journey of a lifetime.Teresa Tomeo, bestselling Catholic author and syndicated talk-show host
