It has just been announced that archaeologists believe they have found the tomb of St Philip, one of the first apostles of Christ, in modern day Turkey. He died around 80 AD, possibly by beheading or upside down crucifixion. It is expected to become a major pilgrimage site.
Meanwhile Mormons have made pilgrimages twice a year for more than a century to visit General Conference, where they can not only see the grave of a dead apostle, but see and hear living apostles speak. Of course, the lazy ones can make the pilgrimage over the Internet. I wonder how many of us Mormons still have an awe when we think of how lucky we are to having several St Philips in our midst.
