    Pilgrim mass script

    Is there a particular script for a pilgrim mass? I’m thinking of including one or two in my Nanowrimo book this year, but I’m not sure if the priests have a standard script that they all use or if it’s just whatever they want to say.

    Pilgrim Mass and Botafumeiro

    This past May through July, I walked the last part of the Norte, from Oviedo/Avilés, the last two days of the Francés, served as a volunteer in the Pilgrim Office for two weeks, and then walked to Finisterre and on to Muxía. During this time, I did the Mass reading 37 times in various churches...

    Anglican Chaplains and Services at Santiago...

    All: I came across this in my daily reading. I know the people personally working to make this a reality for our Anglican / Episcopalian friends. So, I thought the forum members might like to see it...

    Wearing shorts in church

    Recently I saw a discussion in whether it is appropriate to wear shorts for church and most people tended to agree that it is OK. I realise that many pilgrims are not Roman Catholics or practising Roman Catholics and may not be aware of customs and traditions of the church. I wanted to clarify...

    Pilgrim Mass

    Maybe it's my advanced age, but I somehow have always thought that if you are at any religious service--doesn't matter which one--you were expected to show at least a modicum of respect for all concerned. Consequently, today at the noon Pilgrim Mass in Santiago I was, as they say, shocked and...

    The pope is coming

    Just read that Pope Francis be visiting Fatima next week. He's expected to draw around 400k attendees. If you're walking from Lisbon you might want to consider some alternatives for staying in the area or changing your path to get away from the crowd. Unlikely you'll find anywhere to stay...

    I was lucky enough to hear Vespers at a few locations on my Camino in 2015 on the Frances. Now I am getting ready to walk the Camino Portugues in August and would love to hear that again. Are there places on the Portugues you have attended Vespers that I can mark in my Brierley so I won't miss them?

    Daily Mass on the Camino

    Hi all! I don't know if this has already been asked but I couldn't find it. I am going to be walking the Camino this June and I would really like to be able to go to a catholic mass as often as I can. I was wondering if there was anyone that had been on the Camino that would be able to give me...

    Choosing Monasteries/religious route

    Hi everyone I did a camino back in 2010 from Sarria and enjoyed it immensely. I wanted to go back maybe next year but I am trying to plot a route that is more religious. I want to stay at monasteries as much as I can on route. Anyone done that before? Any insights would be great!

    Did you see the Botafumeiro?

    I saw a recent thread regarding the Botafumeiro in Santiago de Compostela and the times it is being swung. Some experienced Pilgrims shared that while there is a weekly evening occasion that it is seen regularly thanks to local Hoteliers but to see it during the noon Pilgrims Mass is a matter of...

    Religious Habit/Cassock

    So I'm going to be doing the Camino near the end of summer and had a bit of a thought/worry. I'm a seminary student a few years out from ordination. The tradition where I'm from is the habit/cassock is worn very frequently. I've been wanting to do the Camino for many years and now that I have...
