The Holy Land John Paul II Games 2010 - Pilgrims of Peace

On April 25 and 26, 2010, hundreds participated in the John Paul II Games to continue his legacy and promote pilgrimage and sports as a bridge to peace. Italians, Israelis and Palestinians participated in the seventh annual Peace Marathon from Bethlehem to Jerusalem, followed by a non-competitive volleyball match.

"Following the footsteps of Jesus" in the Galilee took a new form when participants cycled on the Gospel Trail, enjoying the unique experience of seeing the places visited by Jesus.

Sailing on the Sea of Galilee took a whole new meaning for the pilgrims who participated in a holy Mass on a wooden boat.
