    Pilgrimage – a journey often into an unknown or foreign place, where a person goes in search of new or expanded meaning about self, others, nature, or a higher good, through the experience. It can lead to a personal transformation, after which the person returns home (Merriam-Webster)

    Thanks to the journey we have been on through the late Summer and Fall, I am thinking of approaching the “Holy Seasons of Advent and Lent” this year as a pilgrimage.

    Hello everyone! When I first started out on this journey my goal was to get more exercise physically and spiritually. I find myself saying the “Hail Mary” every time I use the stairs,walk to the car,store,etc.. The journey is becoming more exciting for me spiritually. I am more at peace and look forward to praying every minute I can. I started reading Matthew Kelly’s book “Rediscover the Rosary”. It is fabulous !!!! I am learning so much about how the Rosary actually started,meaning around it and most importantly to me is learning about Mary. I encourage you to read it. While reading it I find myself craving to say the Rosary and feeling at peace.
    It is also interesting and fun to be learning all about the Camino de Santiago. My husband Paul and I have been talking about visiting there.
    This week is going to be busy. I am looking forward to getting my goals accomplished.
    To all of you, wishing you,an energizing peaceful journey!!

    Journey: something suggesting travel or passage from one place to another (Merriam-Webster).

    One of my favorite things to do after work is to walk “The Way” on the trails of the Haverford Twnshp Rec Center. Hilly and flat, on dirt trails and manicured sidewalks, solitary and not, my microcosm of El Camino inspires prayer and contemplation. I feel the fruits of this spiritual journey are increasing my love for my Faith and challenging me how to show it.

    I’m also wondering how I’ll fare when the winds of December and January are blowing and I’m trying to get two miles on the chart. Brrr! : > 0

    Dana, I’m sorry to hear about the passing of your friend’s father. Your friend is lucky to have you. Great idea to dedicate your week to their family! I’ll add your friend & their father to my prayers.

    My pilgram partner and I talk frequently, and get to walk together 1-2 per week. I dear friend’s father passed away this week; the family is Jewish. But it was a motivation and dedication this week that the family has peace and celebrates his wonderful like. I attended their service by zoom, which was very nice.

    Hello Pilgrims! We’re so glad you’re journeying with us. This blog is a place to share about your journey – to help each other on this pilgrimage. So, I’ll kick it off. For me, it’s nice that Mass in the morning isn’t a question, I go. And Rosary while walking the dogs is now routine. Bella and Lily (my dogs) are sooo happy about the extra walks! (Me too.) But, this past week was busy and by Wednesday the walks were shortening. Next week: get those walks back on track. Maybe open one of those books I’ve promised myself I’ll read… 🙂
