    The Pureco Way

    On May 14, 2017 we are starting our pilgrimage journey to "El Camino de Santiago" what we are naming "The Pureco Way" Why The Pureco Way? Simply said because this is our pilgrimage, we are doing it OUR way and with our own reasons to walk it.

    Pilgrimage intention

    I'd like to get opinions on a thought I had. What if you have the intention to begin your Camino, but in the end could not begin physically walking when you wished? If you were still to actively seek out sites of pilgrimage without setting out by walking from place A to Santiago at that specific...

    Suffering, sacrifice, and the Camino

    Several threads have recently contained spirited debate on whether one must suffer to be on a pilgrimage. No one asked if reading my forum posts count as suffering o_O, and I thank you all for that. I’ve been digging holes all morning, thinking about this question. I personally think that...

    Hello, churches!

    Possibly my thought is the result of the CP being underdeveloped and I'll see more as I go on. I am now in Tomar. This has been a pilgrimage in many ways. There are two things I have missed though: Churches, that are actually open (any denomination), and Churches, that try to actively (without...

    As a Protestant...

    What advice would you give to Protestant pilgrims? I am very unwilling to upset Catholic brothers and sisters and fear my inexperience in all things Catholic may do just that. Any advice will be appreciated. So: "when you go into a church...." "when you pray..." Issues that Catholics are...

    Transformation and the Camino

    I've come across a very engaging and fascinating book On Trails: An Exploration by Robert Moor. One for the philosopher's corner of the forum.

    Pot and the Camino – More alike than you thought

    Living in the Bay Area, I am surrounded by pot culture, so when I saw this article in the La Concha newsletter by a NorCal peregrina, I was intrigued. Unfortunately APOC didn't post the continuation. The suspense was killing me, so Diana sent me the full article to share on my blog. Here is the...
