st james day

This is my favourite statue of Saint James, Santiago Peregrino

IMGP0219

He is on top of the Parish Church in Chinchilla, an ancient hilltop town near to Albacete.

I had a rest day here when I walked the Camino de Levante five years ago.  I was extraordinarily looked after by several people there after a tough first week of solo walking.

This James is tough and strong – he has certainly done some miles under the hot sun, but he is full of compassion and love.  He got me through the next weeks as I walked through La Mancha to Toledo.

Saint James, pray for all pilgrim people.
