Santiago! Joyful moment. Quiet prayer.

After walking past some beautiful monuments, including the Monument to Joy, I got the first glimpse of the spires of the Cathedral of Santiago.   It’s about 5 miles over my shoulder in the picture.

Walking into Santiago and entering the plaza was joyous and humbling.

I thank you God, for bringing me safely here and for the many blessings and gifts of my pilgrimage. 

The company and kindness of strangers,  the beauty of the Way, the joy of traveling light, the strength to go on even in difficulties are reminders of Your presence within us and among us.

Now that I have arrived, I remember all our loved ones, especially those who have been in my heart and mind as I walked the Camino.   As I return home, give me courage to live in the spirit of the Camino so that I may make this world a more loving and peaceful place for everyone. 

I make this prayer through Jesus who is the Way, the Truth,  and the Life.  Amen!

 

Buen Camino!

 

Tom
