How well do we know our vocational purpose? How do our life circumstances cause us to reconsider our vocational purpose? How can we know if we are living the life to which God is calling us? This book tells the story of author Richard Ray as he searches for answers to these questions while making a pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James on the Camino de Santiago. Human beings have sought meaning for their lives through transcendent experiences for thousands of years. The pilgrimage is one such transcendent experience. A practice that has a place in all of the world's great religions, the act of pilgrimage, is many things to many pilgrims--retreat, extended prayer, penance for sins, an opening to spiritual or religious conversion. This book provides readers with an opportunity to learn more about pilgrims and pilgrimage, including historical, religious, cultural, artistic, and economic perspectives--all through the journey of an experienced pilgrim. Readers will, perhaps, begin to frame their worldview through the lens of pilgrimage and to conceive of their lives as purposeful journeys to God.
