"Also listen to our travel with Rick Steves interview with David about the footsteps of St. Paul. It's in our show archives at Rick Steves dot com slash radial. Look for program number four 81. It's from April in 2017. David, watching your documentary on the footsteps of Peter, it really was clear that when you actually travel up to the Sea of Galilee, you can find artifacts that really sort of cause you to go back to a first century AD frame of mind. I mean, you can actually find, as you pointed out, lead weights and needles for mending the nets for the fishermen, and there's actually a boat from the first century that well worn boat with iron Staples holding it together and they call it the Jesus boat, right? Yeah, that was an extraordinary experience when I was making the program on some Peter to be shown this first century fishing boat. It was an extraordinary find, but it put the whole life of Peter and the apostles and their industry into perspective. This isn't a big boat by any means, and you can imagine by being in a boat like this when the storms that come over the sea Galilee and big waves. You can imagine them being absolutely terrified. They're not like great big fishing trawling boats of today. And just by looking at that boat and by being in a close vicinity to it, you really are taken back to the first century. And that is so grounding. It is interesting to look at it from a historical point of view, like capernaum is the place on the Sea of Galilee, where there was the most commerce. And that happened to be where the I think the Jordan River comes into the Sea of Galilee. And that would be where the water was most aerated where there would be the best fishing. And fishing was a big part of the industry. Talk a little bit more about the sightseeing you see around capernaum and what were some of the impactful sites that you saw. Well, the tourist sites are there for everybody to see, and I won't repeat all those. But what I will say is that the early Christians or the early followers of the way, they had to worship in secret, they were very, very persecuted in an area that was ruled by Rome and persecuted by their own, and so the beginnings of the group that were following this rabbi at the time that was preaching such a message that had nothing to do with the local Jewish belief. I mean, here was a man who was saying to his disciples and the poor, the first shall be last, and the last shall be first. This turned the whole worldview of Judaism on its head. So he was quite a revolutionary figure in his day, and that whole area of Galilee and as you walk around it, I think rather than any particular place. If I was saying to anybody, what to do there is obviously yes and go to the tourist sites. But once again I would find moments of peace just walking around the Lake or find somewhere, and just sit quietly, look, gaze and realize that you are there with them. Who was the tent maker of the apostles? That was pole, Paul. That was Paul, he was a tent maker, yeah, that's how he earned his living, and you can find yourself in nomadic communities where there are tent makers today with the same kind of black goat hair tempts. Yeah, that's right. But we got to remember with Paul that he was also one of his bigger assets was that he was also a Roman citizen and there was some theory that his family were perhaps slaves at Rome slaves. But yes, no, he was the tent maker and wherever he went on his travels he would set up his little tent making business. There are these sort of echoes of 2000 year ago economy and civilization, the goat hair tents, the fishermen on the Sea of Galilee, and so on. Getting back to the footsteps of Saint Peter, David, Peter died according to legend in Rome, it's conceivable he would have gone to Rome because this is before the Diaspora when the Romans destroyed the temple and the Jews dispersed all over the known world. I believe that was AD 70. So a couple decades before that, Peter could have gone to Rome because there was actually a Jewish community in Rome that predated the Diaspora, a business community, and that's where the ghetto is in Rome to this day. Tell us about Peter in Rome and what is the veracity of the fact that he was killed there and buried on the Vatican hill and on that cemetery was built St. Peter's Basilica. Well, if you go into the, I'm not quite sure how to pronounce it. I think it's called a chapel, the Santa Maria del popolo, the church there, you will see the most extraordinary painting by Caravaggio of Saint Peter being crucified upside down, and the theory is that he was crucified in Rome and chose not to be crucified the correct way up because that was the way Jesus was crucified so he was he chose to be crucified upside down. If you go and venture to the catacombs in Rome, you will see on a wall, images of Peter, with Paul, and prayers written to both of them on broken tiles. And that would suggest I'm told that Peter could have been buried in the catacombs, and then his ossuary which contained his bones was then later moved to where the Vatican is now. If I'm going to be perfectly honest and I feel that I can do no other. I'm not sure that Peter actually got to Rome because I feel and having read the New Testament in Paul's letters over and over and over and the acts of the apostles over and over and over. Nobody mentions Peter in Rome. Nobody mentions him at all. In fact, Peter just disappears from the acts of the apostles very suddenly and never comes back. We don't actually really know. There's lots of books as books called the bones of Saint Peter and lots of people have written to try and prove that he was there. And it could be the case, but I would like still further proof, because it's not there, Paul never mentions being with Peter in Rome, and you know, I wonder how this little fisherman Peter would feel walking into the Vatican now, called Saint Peter's. I wonder how he would look at that and how he would react. I'm not sure he would have the biggest smile on his face. A billion Roman Catholics loved the idea that Peter was. Yes, and you're not pointing I'm not pointing any fingers at the Catholics. It's just my personal belief that as much as I would like to believe that Peter was in Rome. I think he would have been documented as having gone there because Peter was perhaps with John, one of the very, very favorite disciples and because of that he would have been like a hero to his followers after Jesus Ascension. Also, it would have been big news if he was there. It would have been a big news for him to visit Rome, and there's none there's nothing. There's nothing in the acts of the apostle to say he ever went there. He just suddenly disappears, and what we know is that he wrote to people in Cappadocia, and that's why I went to the cave churches in Cappadocia in gorem, which had just amazing. We know that he wrote to the people in Cappadocia. You know, there's some indication that he wrote about Babylon in one of his letters and people say, well, that was Rome, but you know, I would like to see harder evidence. And if I did see harder evidence, I would applaud it and welcome it, but at the moment my own feeling is that Peter actually didn't get there. Was Babylon a code word for Rome? That's what they say. So it would have been if you're doing anything subversive within the Roman Empire, you wouldn't say something bad about Babylon to be a kind of a wink wink. We're talking about the empire. Yes, yes, absolutely. Of course, there's wonderful inspirational religious sites all over the eastern Mediterranean, but you call Jerusalem what you consider the most religious city anywhere. Let's just close our discussion here about the footsteps of Paul with an image in Jerusalem. What is it about Jerusalem that really takes you back and connects you with your faith? I think standing if you ever go to the Austrian hospice, which is right in the center of Jerusalem and on the actual via de la Russo, where they say that Jesus walked to the cross. If you go into the Austrian hospice and you stand at the very top on its roof, and look around that city, and you'll see the Dome of The Rock, and you'll see different churches and you are aware that this city was fought over, people died for it. There were the crusades. It Islam came and took it from the crusaders, and there is so much blood on that soil that ironically is the religious capital of the world. In the skyline is a commotion of crosses and crescents reminding people that it's such a holy place for Christians, Muslims and Jews alike. And yet it's the place famous for the greatest hostilities. Even today, so poignant and so inspiring to actually go and travel there and I'd encourage anybody who's curious to not wait for things to settle down. I mean, if you're not do that, it's never going to happen. If you want to go to Israel and the Holy Land, do it now, it's perfectly safe from thousands and thousands of people who go there and I highly recommend if you do go to Israel to make sure you cross the wall and go to the West Bank of Palestine as well as Israel and you're both narratives and recognize there's a lot of powerful biblical sites on the Palestine side of the wall as well as in Jerusalem and up in Galilee. Absolutely. Bethlehem. Bethlehem, isn't it interesting to think that Bethlehem, which is in Palestine, you could bicycles from Bethlehem where people believe Jesus was born to Jerusalem where they believe he was crucified. You could bike there in half an hour. But there's a wall that makes it a world apart today. Yeah, it's a sad sad thing that going into Bethlehem and coming out of Bethlehem you have to go through border patrol guards. It's a very, very different world, but close your eyes for one second when you're doing that, and imagine that, to be instead of Israeli guards, Roman gods. Wow. Spoken like a person who's been there and a person who's been there in a very thoughtful way. David suchet, thank you for all of your work and thank you so much for joining us. Thank you.

"Actor David suchet traveled to Israel to understand the world Saint Peter lived in. He shares what he discovered next on travel with Rick Steves. Simon bar Jonah made his living fishing on the Sea of Galilee in the first century. His encounter with Jesus would change everything. The man who came to be known as Simon Peter and would later be honored as Saint Peter has held a special interest for British actor David suchet. A few years ago, David wanted to understand the world Peter lived in and how it influenced the beginnings of Christianity, so he took a BBC film crew to Israel to produce a travel documentary called in the footsteps of Saint Peter as a follow-up to his well received special in the footsteps of St. Paul. David, it's good to have you back on travel with Rick Steves. It's such a pleasure. David, I really liked what you did with your documentaries. Now, Paul traveled all over the Mediterranean to take the gospel to the gentiles. Where did you go to follow the life of Saint Peter? I think the first place to start would be Galilee because Peter had a rather entrepreneurial fishing business with James and John, a lot of people think that Peter might have been very, very poor. I have a feeling that he was doing quite well, really, with his fishing business on the lakes of Galilee, and in fact, when Jesus called James and John to follow him, and they immediately it says in the Bible just let their nets go and followed him. They were leaving quite a big business behind them, so something extraordinary happened. Saint Peter was with Jesus and chosen by Jesus as one of his 12 apostles. And he followed Jesus all around Jesus teaching in Galilee and when we go further north to a place called banias in Israel. Now what was wonderful in this place is he turned round to his 12 and he said, who do people say that I am? Now the reason he did that was because this place in the walls of The Rock all around you, a little temples to pagan gods, and there are little slabs where they would sacrifice goats and sheep and things like that. Jesus took them there and asked them. Not only who do people say that I am, but who do you say that I am? In comparison to all these other pagan gods, and it was Peter, who confessed wahoo he thought Jesus was, but he said, you are the Christ, the son of the living God. And Jesus said, virtually. Yes, I am. And then he said to Peter, of course, and it's on this rock, you are Peter. The Rock that's his name, Peter The Rock, and on this rock I build my church. And you see that in the dome under towering a hundred meters over where Peter is buried, it says you are Peter and upon this rock I will build my church. I've been my church. I have a slightly different take as a child of the reformation. I personally wish I could have been there because I'd love to know what Jesus did with his hands when he said on this rock, I build my church. Where was he pointing? Was he pointing at Peter? Was he pointing at The Rock around him? Or was he pointing at him? I personally feel. And there will be millions of Christians who will disagree with me. That's okay. I personally feel that by pointing his finger to Peter. Where he would have been pointing his finger to a man that was actually failing him all the time. He could have been meaning Peter's confession that he was the Christ, but I personally feel that he was pointing to himself upon yes, Peter, you've got that right and upon this rock meet. The Christ. And the message that he was bringing. Yes, and therefore him himself Christ was The Rock. So David as a Christian going to these sites in the Holy Land. I remember sitting on the Sea of Galilee with my Jewish guide reading from the Bible, and I've never really enjoyed hearing the Bible red as much as when I was right there on the Sea of Galilee. Rick, what you've just described is exactly what anybody any believer going to Israel going to Galilee will feel and they call it visiting and moving in the places where Jesus walked. They actually call it the 5th gospel. Because it gives you such a credibility that you can not you can not access just from the written word, but by standing there by walking wedges walked and you hear him using nature, like the lilies and the reeds and you're walking there and it just comes alive in a way that the written word doesn't. And you're standing, you can take a boat and go on to the Sea of Galilee and you can look and I remember my wife Sheila, nudging me and said, look, look at that view, David, and I said, well, yes, it's beautiful. Now she said no, that view wouldn't have changed. In 2000 years and Peter and Jesus and all his disciples on the Sea of Galilee would have looked maybe at that same view. And this really was so exciting. I can not tell you by being in the area by being in that in Galilee and where Jesus actually taught it really is. It's a solidifies your faith. You know, there's a gorgeous church in a garden on amount. I think it's called the church of the beatitudes where Jesus preached the sermon on the mount, and I was there with a bunch of African Christians who were singing. And I'm thinking you mentioned the 5th gospel being right there on those holy stones. And then Luther liked to say he who sings praise double. I think you're so right, because even in Jerusalem, my favorite church in Jerusalem is the Church of Saint Anne's, actually, and they have the most wonderful acoustics there, and if anybody is going there and you can just sit in the seats in the pews, because every group of Christian, you know that tour groups or whatever that come into that church, they go into either a deliberate song, or spontaneous song, and when it spontaneous, and those acoustics are famous for this, the sound is just spine tingling. And as you said in the church of the beatitudes up in the Galilee, exactly the.

"The glory Holly loose. Hollywood. Through my eyes me the love I leave. A joke Kathy, that's beautiful. So what essentially were you saying to translate that into English? And Jesus, you are my love and I adore you. So it really is praise music that goes from a literature from medieval times. Yes, from a poem to 20th century music. And where would you sing, where would you find us a tour guide? You would sing that in which I would have a sacred place. I would sing it in if I was in Glendale on saint Kevin's church just to be standing in it. It's extraordinary, maybe gallerist oratory in dingle, one of the great antiquities. These are religious stone buildings that go back to what people consider the dark ages in Europe. The 500 to 1000 period. Yes, and to signal a song it takes you out of the site. This has traveled with Rick Steves, we're talking with Stephen and Kathy Ryan, who just blessed us with her beautiful voice. You know, when we think about Ireland, you gotta think about Saint Patrick. Stephen, who was he? Well, Saint Patrick is a very interesting figure because there's many arguments that he was this or that or this person or this person and he may not even have existed. General historical belief is that he was a man called Patricia, who was a Roman citizen who lived somewhere in the north of England or maybe north of Wales, the narrative goals that he was kidnapped by Irish raiders because the army used to read, ironically, used to attack Britain a lot back in those days, and we would carry off slaves, slaves were a big part of Celtic culture and Celtic societies that would be brought back and he would work in Saint Patrick was brought back to work as a shepherd boy for I think 7 years or something open. And this is Roman Britain, but the Romans never went to Ireland, so you would raid into the Roman zone. The Barbarians going into the coming into England and capture some young civilized Christian Roman Britain. Like Saint Patrick's father had been a priest in the early Christian church, we think. And so he came as a shepherd boy, God appeared to him in a dream and told him to go to the coast where a boat would be waiting for him to take him off and then he should go there and become a priest in the early church. And he should learn more about Christianity, and he did that. He went back to live with the people in his home village, but he was having nightmares and in these nightmares, the people of Ireland were burning as a metaphor for them burning in the fires of hell. So I've always came to him in his dream and said, we ask you, boy, come and walk once more amongst us. So that was his call to go back to the Irish and convert us from Christianity to Ireland. Yeah, that's the general belief. But that's about in the year 500 or something like this. Yeah, this is four 32 AD. Four 32. And to this day, Saint Patrick's pretty big deal in Ireland, but the Saint Patrick's Day is in some ways bigger in the United States, isn't it? Yeah, it's a big old growing up in Ireland though it was always big. It just wasn't this big drinking fast that it is in America and Australia and Britain, which I think is unfortunate, but we were growing up like there was a military parade sometimes and there'd be the local sports teams would march and they'd always go to mass in the morning and maybe some of the older man would go off for drinks, but it would not. It was a holy day. Yeah. It was the holy day. Saint Patrick used the shamrock to illustrate the Trinity, right? The three leaps on the camera. Yeah, that's right. But his mountain is venerated. It's a pilgrimage site in county Mayo and Murray. They are a huge day in the summertime reek, the mountain Sunday, and you begin in the evening, sort of an unholy to the Celtic lore that the day starts in the night. And you begin your trek up that mountain, and you do your pilgrimage, you do the stations, and then many people take off their shoes and climb that shade, huge cairn at the top, barefoot. I've heard about that barefoot climb, and it's near Westport. This happens every year at the same time when I said. Last Sunday in July. Last Sunday in July. Near Westport, near Westport, and a cool walk if anybody's ever gone by. And they're just stop the car and go up. You probably get up there. I've done it probably 15 times. You've done it. Oh, any time when you're driving up. Have you ever done the action foot? I did a barefoot once, but it was just taking me so long that I just had to put the shots back. I think that's fine. I would do it in shoes. That's what I would recommend. It feels like a pilgrimage. You don't have to be Catholic. What about saint Bridget? I love her. I love the energy of Bridget, and I love that in saint Bridget you get such an interweave of the goddess Bridget that is hard to tell them apart. You can't pull the strands. You mean goddess Bridget being a Celtic goddess who's there before the corporate ever was. Okay, there's another example of the indigenous religion being grafted into the new religion. Exactly. And her feast day is on the 1st of February and in honor of the celts, it celebrated beginning the night before. I think it's important to say one of the reasons I think anyway saints are so important to the Irish is because of the penal laws, is because they couldn't always celebrate their mass in community. So God and Mary the saints became very intimate companions. So the penalized her listeners understand and me too when the English overlords wanted to crush the indigenous culture, which was Catholic also. They said you can not do this. Is that right? You can't go to mass. You can't speak your language. But you can't be educated. It's like the Scottish people couldn't wear kilts and play the bagpipes. I think the harp in Ireland was suddenly not okay. Right. No music was not okay. People always applied to all of the United Kingdom, not just Ireland that implied in Scotland and Wales as well, but in Ireland was the only real Catholic nation of the four I mentioned there, so it was most felt there. Do I understand that some Irish saints are not beatified by the Vatican, they're just Irish initiatives? I imagine the vast majority aren't because they're from an early Celtic church before it became linked in with Roman Catholicism. When they got it all organized and orderly and changed everything. But that never stopped the Irish. You know, we're very tribal, and we know who we love and who we want to venerate. But part of your heritage also have never been conquered by the Romans. I'm quite sure that's huge. But let me just, if you don't mind, I'd love to just get back to Bridget because she's the patroness of so many things, stemming from fertility, going to creativity and then transformation, taking disparate things and turning them into something living or long-lasting. So she's the patroness of blacksmiths, of midwives, of poets, and I love that great poet of the druids would go through the town with an apple branch and little bells on it to let the people know in honor of Bridget that he was coming back to sing them back to themselves. I love that. Long-lasting things, blacksmiths, midwives,.

"Theology or it's really specific to Ireland. So that's an indigenous and it can be incorporated into the more modern Christianity, but it was there before. It was the compost pile from which the Irish exactly and the celts saw some purification in the water that was in these wells, so then when we became Christian, we still wanted to go to the Wales, so they just became Saint Patrick's wells or some bridges wealth. If ever you want to conquer a country religiously, you incorporate the co op. I mean, Christmas was on a pagan holiday. That's December 25th. And Easter would have been something similar. Halloween was the Celtic new year. There you go. And they're all of those wells and those sacred places. They were always venerated because they had this resonance. They were the thin places, where the veil between this world and the otherworld is very thin. Thin places have never thought of that. That's very cool. And you can feel it. I remember getting dragged off to a holy well when I was probably tanned by my mother because I had a veruca or a planters wart on my foot, so we traveled along distance so that I could get my foot dipped into the well and cured by the whale. Though it did get cured, but was it the spiritual healing powers of the well or I don't know. I believe. It's certainly a factor. And your mother did this. Took you'd found long drive to take care of a wart by dropping it in a holy well. Yeah, and this is a university educated woman. Yeah, you know, who brought me all that way to belief in it. So yeah, as a result, I am Kathy and we all grow up with that respect for it as well. Right. I just took a friend to a healer in county loud where I live. She got a burn on her foot. I was on the way to E and R and a friend of mine said, what? You have to bring her to shame us. He's on the road to green or don't be taken her into the hospital, and he saw her three times, and he healed her foot, and her foot was boiling water fell on it, she took the sock off, took the skin off, and in three days she was at Heathrow Airport with a pair of shoes on walking around. So there are still healers. I bet that's an interesting challenge for the priests and so on to try to respect these. Oh, they'd go to them as well. Inclusiveness. Let's say it's inclusivity. Yes. It's travel with Rick Steves and singer Kathy Ryan and tour guide Steven mcphillamy are helping us get to know the saints of Ireland and their importance to Irish identity today. So the Irish have a an enthusiasm for saints and for their faith and I know both of you love music. Does it show itself in traditional music? Because that's such an important part of the Irish culture. A lot of the songs, a lot of the spiritual religious songs would have been wiped out because of the penal laws with 1600s to 1800s. There's not a lot of them extant, but a lot of the poetry was and it's been put to music. There are still some old songs, like the Keenan imaginal lament of Mary or the kinana tree water, the lament of the three marys, and the lyrics are absolutely beautiful. 25 versus long, but there's not many of them. So that's a lament that survived the English trying to put down the culture. And it was sung as sort of almost a statement that we're not going to be put down and kept alive in the popular culture through the pubs and in the families when they gather. And the families that holidays and certainly many more in Steven can attest to this as well, many more songs were written during the time in a pub if you went. Probably not so much on a Sunday maybe. You'd be very reverent about a song like that. You wouldn't just sing it anywhere in just a little bit of one with so we can hear the lyrics and the beautiful melody. Passing this one, this has been put to music by Liam Lawton, and it's a 12th century text. It's called McGrath a year, and I sing this at sacred sites in Ireland when I'm there because I think a lot of them need to be.

"Today. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking saints of France with julissa Vogue and Patrick Vidal. Our phone numbers 877-333-7425 and Williams calling from Miami. William, thanks for your call. You have a thought about saints and France. Last time I visited Paris, I tend to stop in churches, but I was after I went to the Pantheon. I stopped in a church nearby called saint Etienne Dumont. And I noticed that it would have originally had the remains of the patron saint of Paris saint genevieve. But I don't remember if I read in a guidebook or there was a plaque here, but I understand that during the revolution they had ransacked the church, they'd taken our body and burned it and throw it in the same. I noticed that there weren't many reliquaries in the churches of Paris. Is this why? Because they were destroyed during the revolution? Well, that's most of the reason ballot, but very often a lot of places to be conveniently found them again after the revolution. So conveniently they find these relics. Yes, I mean, not everywhere, but because it helps bring money to that church. It brings money. I mean, it was not doing that anymore in the 19th century, but still it was an important part of the world and the 250 years ago during the French Revolution, whatever the late 1700s, you would have the French Revolution, which was sort of anti church come in and turn these churches. Throw out the Christianity and turn it into an intellectual temple of reason. And of course, these relics made no sense at all. We're going to talk about the sensation of the champagne was a story with the grain after that movement. We get the swing of the pendulum back and the balloons coming on is the church on. In the relic was probably burned or destroyed, but they find a new one. They found a new miraculously. Faith, you know, in France, there are so many churches that burned down and then in the ashes they find a veil. With the image of Jesus or something, and then the pilgrims start to come. And more pilgrims start to come and they get plenty of money and they can build a new church bigger and better than ever. And medieval time work free heads of central and the baptista around Europe. There you go. Thanks for your call, William. Thank you very much. You guys have a good day. Take care. It seems there's a favorite saint or two for nearly every town in France. We're learning about a few of the national favorites right now on travel with Rick Steves from French tour guides, julissa and Vogue and Patrick Vidal. You know, a big, big destination in France is lords, and when you have a pilgrimage site, usually there is an what do you call it an apparition where the devout people in that town see something coming down from heaven? Bernadette is a big, big popular destination for pilgrims. What do we know about lords and saint bernadette? Well, she was as long as I remember. She was a farmer. And she saw the virgin Mary a couple of times. In a cave, just on the outskirt of lord. As usual, it was not very easy to recognize the miracle and it took a little bit of time to be recognized, but since then, lord has become one of the massive pilgrimage place. The water is supposed to be Holly water. In a miraculous healing miracle. And whatever you think about the original event, it is an amazing display of faith and people do go there and try and loads of people go down. I've been there a couple of times and it is just an amazing spectacle. And people come there and throw away their crutches, you know? It's quite a special. So that is lords in the Pyrenees mountains in the South of France. And the last saint I just want to touch on is famous for a little striking Abbey, build it big and they will come on an island off of the coast of Normandy in Brittany. Saint Michael's mouth. Michael, yeah. What's about saint Michael? But first of all, saint Michael is supposed to be waiting for you on a day or the last judgment and he's taking you on your way to heaven or hell if you're in trouble. But he's always at the top. Right. Last stop. Anything would be off for saint Michael is on top of the hill somewhere. Or is that right? Yeah. So here's your last stop before heaven. Well, and that is your quintessential Abby on a hilltop is Mont-Saint-Michel at Stanton's striking mountain in the middle of this vast tidal flat. Right, with a golden archangel Michael on top. It's quite stirring. Mont-Saint-Michel. Yeah, so if you come to San Michael, you were to climb. Patrick widow, Mercedes. Bless you. Like any good actor trying to understand a character, David suchet went to Israel with a film crew to see what he could learn about the first century world Saint Peter lived in. Here what he discovered in just a bit on today's travel with Rick Steves. But first, Irish tour guide Stephen McFly returns along with Kathy Ryan to tell us what they've discovered about some of Ireland's favorite saints. When you spend time with the Irish, you find that many of the national saints of Ireland remain very much alive in their hearts. Hundreds of saints are recognized for helping establish the Gaelic church in its early centuries, even spreading the Christian faith to Britain. They now serve as patrons for different professions, places and special circumstances. Irish monks are credited with saving western civilization during Europe's dark ages. And a group of martyrs were beatified by John Paul the second for defending their religion against the cruelties of English rulers back in the 16th and 17th centuries. For a look at how the Irish revere their saints and scholars were joined by Stephen. He was raised Catholic in Northern Ireland and now lives in dingle in the south. And Kathy Ryan is a musician who sings about the traditions of Ireland. She was born to Irish immigrants in Detroit, and has now made her own home in Ireland's county lauth. Steven Cathy, welcome. Thanks, Rick. Thanks for having us. Ireland is known as the land of saints and scholars. Kathy why is that? When Patrick and the bishops before him who we never hear about came to Ireland, they came to a country that was inhabited by druids and pagans and they brought Christianity with them, and they also brought the love of the Bible, literature, story, and they wanted to write it. I mean, they understood the importance of capturing it, not just orally, but making it permanent, unchangeable. And saints and scholars is relative to the rest of Europe, which was in the dark ages at the time. Exactly. So you have that bright light of faith and literacy. In Ireland. Absolutely. And they really loved story, and they loved the adoration of God, and spirit something transcendent, which I think is very, very Celtic. It's very Irish. Like you said, they love story. And that was 1500 years ago. And today, Ireland loves stories. And hasn't changed. Now, Stephen McFly, Ireland is Catholic as can be, whether people go to church or not. It just seems like it's a Catholic land. Why is Ireland so Catholic, whereas England might not be so definitively Catholic. Of course, when the reformation came, our choice was to stay Catholic for spiritual reasons, but also for political reasons and pride reasons. The English were also conquering us at the same time. Okay, so Henry dissolved all the Catholic monasteries and everything in England in Ireland bucked that, and we remained loyal and steadfast to the Vatican, and of course, to have changed at that time would also have been seen to be loyal to the new invaders coming in. So there may be a patriotic aspect to it as well. When you think about traveling in Ireland, there's this fascination or this enjoyment of medieval fairies and sacred forts and holy wells and so on. Is that indigenous? Does that go back before Christianity came to Ireland? I believe it did. 100%. And I mean, I think that's what yeats, the whole Celtic revival was using was magnetized to. They wanted the Irish to understand in the world to understand that the Irish had this mystical level, this transcendent level. They weren't part of the industrial revolution that that was their magic. That was what made them special and different. Yeah, and our whole culture of the holy whales. I mean, I don't recall seeing that anywhere in.

"st peters" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves

"When the Irish state the saints preserve us, they're also sustaining a bit of their pre Christian Celtic history. Ah, I love her just. I love the energy of Bridget and I love that in saint Bridget you get such an interweave of the goddess Bridget that is hard to tell them apart. You can't pull the strands. The saints, the French revere like Joan of Arc often have a political sight to them. The fighter thing is that the most thing she's associated with is she kicked the English out of France. And here how the actor who played detective poirot on TV investigated the biblical account of Saint Peter. How it did a simple fisherman end up being remembered as the first Pope, David suchet recommends visiting places mentioned in the Bible to better understand the first century world. And they call it visiting and moving in the places where Jesus walked. They actually call it the 5th gospel. The footsteps of Saint Peter and the favorite saints of Ireland and France, it's all just a hit on today's travel with Rick Steves. Understanding of countries religious heritage can really help you appreciate what you'll encounter as a sightseer. Or even as a modern day pilgrim to sacred sites around the world. Coming up on today's Easter edition of travel with Rick Steves, we'll learn how some of Ireland's favorite saints have identities that actually predate the arrival of Saint Patrick. And later in the hour, David suchet investigates the first century world of a Galilean fisherman who would become known to the world as Saint Peter. The Catholic heritage of France is filled with the stories of saints, men and women whose stories of their faith often included dramatic sacrifice. And sometimes they got into political scrapes as well. To help us understand the importance of the saints in the history of France were joined now by tour guides Patrick Vidal and julissa vaux, who live in Brittany and burgundy. They take your calls and a bit at 877-333-7425. Thanks for joining us. And Eric bonjour. Now we don't have anybody in America quite like Joan of Arc. When I go to Paris, there must be a dozen statues of Joan of Arc, just around Paris. You see Joan of Arc so much in France. She's a Christian figure, but she's also a French figure. So I mean, think of that when you think of statues of Joan of Arc, when were they made those statues? Have you seen any medieval statue of Joan of Arc? No. Never. Yes. She was colonized in 1920. Wow, only. She's a used up figure that she's used for to rally the French. Two regular French, before the First World War after the collapse of the empire in 1871. So Joan of Arc was used as a unification rally the troops in World War I. One of the most known statue of genova in France in Paris is on top of the sacre coeur on top of montmartre, with St. Louis, and that's a church which was finished in 1919. So that's exactly the same period. Now, historically, why would she be tied to the challenge that the World War I presented France in 1914? What did she do? The funny thing is that the most thing she's associated with is she kicked the English out of France. She kicked the English out of the boot that is only all the false. And this is the time when we need England's help to kick the Germans out of France. That's a shortcut. But she goes back to it was the Hundred Years' War, right? But it's interesting because she didn't kick the English out of France at all. She was captured by the story behind is that the French kingdom collapsed to a very very small amount of land that king of France was not very powerful anymore. What century is this? We're talking about 14 in the beginning of 1400s. And there is an existential problem, a threat to France now. England has taken most. England has taken most of France the south sea is used by the, which is a very, very strong family, which is when most of the South of France. And eastern part of France run by the burgundians. And then there's this young charismatic woman who dressed like a man who rose up to lead the army. Absolutely. She comes to me. Long story short. Let's make a long story short. That's fine. She came to meet the king in this royal fortress in chinon and she tells him that we need to lead you to reconquer your kingdom. She takes him to harsh ways coronated as the official king because he never happened before, they didn't have the strength for that. And she's captured by the burgundian under the wall of Paris. Burgundian don't know what to do with her, so they sell her to the British. What putting it to the trial as a witch and burn her on the stake in what city. And that's very easy to visit just a couple hours west of Paris, Rouen. And Julie, when you go to Rome, how can you sightsee with Joan of Arc in mind? Well, Joan of Arc you can see her everywhere because she started out. She was born and raised in the east and she had to march all the way across to the west to meet the king, and then march him all the way back to the east to get him crowned in hunts. So in every little town in the north of France, you see Joan of Arc pass by here. She's burned at the stake, and she disappears from his story. Because nobody's interested in her. She's part of his story as in all the character, but she's nothing special. Right. And she becomes something special only at the end of the 19th century when France is looking for characters to unify the French and get a strong character to get the power back. She was canonized in 1920. Let's talk about another saint woolen counter in France, St. Louis, St. Louis. The only French king who was canonized because the only one. What is so important about St. Louis, Julie? Well, he in 1239, when he is the king, he wants to make Paris as important as Rome, religiously, his grandfather had done an architecturally by building the walls around Paris, and he wants to make Paris the most important city on the map, and so what he does is he goes to Constantinople and gets a major relic and brings it back to Paris. And builds a reliquary for it, which becomes a chapel the saint chapelle. Gorilla is a fancy jewel box. Right. But this is actually like a church. It's functions as the reliquary for instance. It has so many stained glass windows in it kind of representing the jewels on the jewel box. So when you go into the sun Chappelle, you're stepping into the most glorious gothic space, I think, in Europe, it was all built to house The Crown of thorns. Yeah, it was purpose built for The Crown sonnets, so interesting because it's a very homogeneous church style wise. But it was built in four four to 6 years. We don't know exactly, but four two 6 the amazing thing is Notre-Dame was built over 200 years or so. Thank you. This was built by one architect, finished exactly the way it was started, and that means it has that cohesiveness. Absolutely. I understand St. Louis could just take little individual thorns off of that thing. And then left. For favors. Does it actually exist to this day? Yes, it's in the treasury of Notre-Dame. All right. They bring him out every first Friday of the month. St. Louis. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking about French saints with Patrick Vidal and Julie sanville. Another saint we encounter in Paris especially saint Dennis. He's the guy who's holding his head in his hands. What's the story there, Patrick? By the story, he was a Robin bishop, and he was, it was trialled by the Roman. So 2000 years ago, he was the Roman Christian in Paris. He was in Paris, he was the bishop, and he was arrested. This is after Rome became Christian, so you can have a it was no, it was before that. It was when it was not official. So that's why he got in. A lot of them blondin in Lyon, like with a lot of different signs around him in Maori around the place before the beginning of the 300s. If you were a Christian at the end of the film, you were married if you don't know the Christian. Okay, so his timing was off. Yeah, exactly. What happened to him? How was he murdered? So it was created at the fit of the hill of montmartre. He had partly picked up his head, walked up the hill, washed his head under the fountain of there and kept walking on the other side and walked a couple of miles and collapsed and where he collapsed they buried him and built this big church where all the king of France are buried since named after him. So that's a suburb of Paris.

That painter should run, what do you want to run? He's been in successful as he possibly can be with it. And this is a really good team running matte painters system, right? Yeah. But like they have the personnel to do. They have the personality to be as elites as any offensive basketball team as I've ever seen. If they would really make it work on the college level because they have Jade and ivy, they have trivial Williams who you could run one 5 short role like actions with where trivial Williams is like he's thrown over his head anyway. It's like dude's layup lines will actually start regular fast. I mean like you could run some really high level high one 5 ball screen actions with trevion Williams and you could use them on duck ends and then you have the shooters like you have Sasha stefanovic. You have mason Gillis like you have. The other Isaiah PJ, I think it's Isaiah Thompson. I always forget which Thompson it is at Purdue now. But you have the personnel you need to run just in unstoppable one 5 high ball screen action that Jade and I people will run mostly in the NBA. And again, like I'm not taking shots in that painter. This is more what I would like to see from an evaluation perspective as opposed to what works winning basketball games, right? I'm just disappointed that we don't get to see that as often. For my own selfish perspective, not from like a winning basketball games perspective, which is what he cares about. And who they play next round. St. Peters. Saint Peter's.

"The other day, which made a point that I hadn't thought about, is that when you get on the neutral court, right? All these teams, all these lower seed teams, they believe it because they're like their momentum's up. They didn't lose in the second round of the conference tournament, like, ah, let's pick ourselves up, figure it out. They've won their conference tournament. They are hyped up. They're ready to go. They've grown up watching Mark madness. They know the upset potential that's there. And you run out there, and you look up in the stands, there's a lot of Kentucky blue, but the whole place is a Kentucky blue, and there's some Saint Peter's. There's some empty seats because like the way the games are staggered, like somehow it's never full, which I don't get. You hit your first shot or two, you start looking at your bench like, we can do this right now. And then you mix in the New York New Jersey toughness. You mix in some really good sets. And putting the pedal to the metal and that's the elements of the recipe for an upset. And that's what I've done it twice already. No, it's dead on. Okay, let's talk about chat and jabari. We've gone 20 minutes here. I wanted to lead with them, and we just ended up talking about the NCAA tournament for a while, but I was blown away in some respects with this weekend, and was underwhelmed in some respects with chat this weekend. And then jabari Smith obviously gets knocked out. Yesterday going three for 16, I think, from the field and not taking a shot from the 16 or no from the 15 minute mark down to like the three minute mark in that game if I remember correctly. He went 12 minutes without taking a field goal attempt in part because Katie Johnson and Wendell green decided it was Katie Johnson and Wendell green time. Great time to do it. Which happens from time to time with auburn, unfortunately, and it was not the best time to do it. I just want to say too. It was clear that Miami heard what zep Jasper said when he was asked, I think it was like before the tournament, or before their game, Miami is the best transition team in the country. I know that you guys pride yourself on transition player or whatever. Like how are you going to win that battle? And he was just like, we're the best transition team in the country. Like he laughed it off and was like, they're from the ace, ACC, we are in the essay. And it was just like, okay, man..

"Our mark from St Peter was asking how can I claim my social security benefit next year when I turn sixty two and should I wait or take it as soon as I can it really depends on your individual situation it depends on a lot of different factors to if you're married single divorced or have a deceased spouse all of those things come into play I will say to the main things that you need to think about is how long do you think you're going to live and do you think social security might change in the future I know a lot of people that want to take it earlier at sixty two get the money now because they don't trust what might happen or what might change in the future and I learned from you there's about nineteen thousand different ways to take it but as soon as you decide you're locked in well there's hundreds of different ways to take and are thousands of different rules in the social security handbook trial it does get rather complicated and once you do it after twelve months you can't ever go back and change it as a C.
