Spiritual Preparation

Although there is physical effort involved when preparing for your journey, a pilgrimage is a spiritual experience.

Pilgrimage is about leaving your usual distractions, phone, messages, social media behind to focus on the sacred and your specific intentions. Reflect on why you are going on pilgrimage? What do you seek to gain from the experience? What are your intentions as you make the pilgrimage journey. Preparation may begin with an intensification of prayer life, and study of specific biblical passages and reflections. Ask family and friends if they have intentions they would like you to take on the journey. It is the preparation we make that will help direct our prayer and allow us to hear God’s response.
