PILGRIMAGE

PILGRIMAGE

“Faith is not the clinging to a shrine but an endless pilgrimage of the heart.”

We are not a travel agent and cannot respond to the many requests to advise people on how to organise a pilgrimage. Each one is unique. Careful thought needs to be given to the spiritual purpose, needs and budgets of pilgrims. Do not rush from place to place. Time to linger, wander and be is as important as cramming in one more site.

Here we aim to gradually build up information about sites, routes, resources, agencies.  Please send information to brenda.grace@aidanandhilda.org.uk

a prayer...

We arise today
in the wisdom of the One
who brought to birth the giant plains,
the water and the first beings.
We arise today
in the brightness of the One
who created the blazing sun,
the shining stars and the twinkle in our eyes.
We arise today
in the mercy of the One
who gave us dreams
and memories and hearts.
Amen
