All went well and I brought home very special memories of my own Camino experience. I had read Fr. Kevin Codd’s book “To The Field Of Stars” about eight years ago and had added the Camino to my “bucket list” at that time and then the movie “The Way” just clinched it for me. In ’13, I had my 70th birthday and spent it, and the next two weeks, in the hospital. My husband wanted to do something special for that birthday and a year later he came upon this pilgrimage. So, it was very meaningful to me.
As I trudged along on the “longest day”, I was asking our Lord, why am I doing this!!!!??? I will always remember Juan saying to me as we approached Santiago, walking the stone street, “the Church is right up there, you will see it soon and there is something very special about it, you will see”. The moment I saw the spire of St. James the grace of God flowed into me and I became overwhelmed with joy and peace, my tiredness gone, only anticipation remained. I still live some of that feeling and will remember it for the rest of my life. Walking into that beautiful cathedral was overwhelming. I wish I could explain what I felt/feel but words cannot describe.
The Eucharist, the incense carrying our prayers to our Lord in praise and thanksgiving are such a personal experience—one that has become a part of my being.
Thank you so much for helping to make this personal journey one of great spiritual joy for me.
Your kind care and patience was a gift to me personally, shows a great deal of professionalism and joy in your work. It is difficult keeping safe, and happy, such a large group under any circumstance, you did it well and I thank you. We couldn’t have asked for better care.
Spain is a beautiful country and I loved the antiquity of the farm lands, the people are helpful and warm, the food awesome!
All made walking the Camino pleasurable, even the rain.
Thank you again for your kindness and professionalism, you will ever be in my heart and prayers. May our precious Lord keep you in His care and open your heart to His grace as you make your own personal journey through life. May He be your guide!
In love and thanksgiving.
