What is a pilgrimage?

When we go on a Pilgrimage we are walking towards God. We go to God, not perfect, but as we are. We offer ourselves completely, with all our doubts, flaws, crisis, sickness, curiosity, adventure, faith, thanksgiving, and most importantly, with our Pilgrimage intentions and prayers.

If you’re looking for luxury, perfection, or vacation, a Pilgrimage is probably not for you. Clearly a Pilgrimage is not a “break” from responsibilities like a vacation is – rather it is a calling; a personal invitation from God. It reminds us of our responsibility to our faith as disciples of Jesus. On a Pilgrimage, we encounter God in the very places where He has revealed himself.

It can be a challenge – it can take us out of our comfort zones and incorporate tedious travel or navigating difficult terrain. Sometimes the steps are not easy, but every step counts. Remember, everything that happens while on Pilgrimage happens on the route towards God. Every step you make on your Pilgrimage are the steps that will lead you from the person you were, to the person you’re growing to be in deeper consciousness and sensitivity to God. It is a transformational experience that changes our lives and brings us closer to our faith in ways we could never imagine through sincere and concentrated prayer – that is, if you let it.

There is a path in front of each of us; let’s move forward with and towards Jesus.
