There is a very good piece by my friend and fellow pilgrim Rebekah Scott here about the plans that the Fraternidad Internacional del Camino de Santiago have to restore the Way to something that is holy and down to earth and which does not eat itself. I recommend reading it, especially if you are a pilgrim.
It speaks a lot to me about the Advent Journey we’ve been on. About taking care. Looking for what is important. Holding onto it for dear life. Loving passionately. Doing justice. Looking for God in other people. Respecting the earth.
Advent finishes tomorrow night as we move into Christmas. There is a calm for me before the wonderful chaos of Children’s Carol Services and Midnight Masses. Let’s carry on walking together and see what Christmas brings.
The unexpected and unlooked for is so often the best.
