Once again, a wonderful pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham last weekend. Sadly my last one with St Gabriel’s but wonderful to spend time again with folk along with pilgrims from St Bede’s.
There always seems to be some sort of controversy going on in the various pilgrim forums that you need to walk to be a pilgrim. I love walking pilgrimages, but there is something special and deep about these weekend voyages by car or coach to a shrine.
We did walk to the Slipper Chapel
Which meant a cup of tea to warm up
even for the shy.
We worshipped hard and deeply, we ate well, we had space for praying and reflecting, we talked, we spent the evenings in what Chrissy has wisely termed ‘The Holy Pub’
and there was more walking at the very end, following Jesus.
The goodness, humaness and healing of pilgrimage.
