"It will start off in Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. From there on, it will go through Palestine into Israel and it will finish in Jerusalem, where Jesus died and rose from the dead.”

"This caused great harm, especially for those who rely on religious tourism to survive. We're hoping that through this pilgrimage we can send a strong message.” 

About 1,000 people are expected to attend this year. Organizers are hoping that visitor's personal experience will have a public impact.

The pilgrimage will also mark the 80th anniversary of the Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi. The trip will be headed by Cardinal Agostino Vallini.
