Happy pilgrim who is in beautiful Leon:cool: Please say hello from us to St Isidore in his breath-taking basilica and perhaps you can ask him to help all those who are creating this Forum for us. St Isidore is a patron of the Internet;)

Happy St James Feast Day!! I’m arriving in Leon today!!! Pray for us St James to arrive safely at your Cathedral.
Walking in and out of Leon may be tiring and uninspiring, but beauty of the Cathedral, Basilica and St Marcos will compensate for all the effort. Happy St James' Feast Day!

I wrote these thoughts in 2015 but for me they are timeless. ...

Soon it will be July 25, the Feast of St James. Multitudes will convene and celebrate this historic Catholic event in Santiago de Compostela.

Government officials, church dignitaries, ordinary citizens, and, of course, thousands of actual pilgrims will be present. They will assemble to actively participate in age-old ecclesiastic pageantry and tradition. Imagine if they could be magically joined by all past pilgrims. Such a super-giant throng of celebrants would stretch back one thousand years!

Whatever our ethnicity or beliefs, all pilgrims who have walked the Camino share common bonds. All surely remember their personal thrill on arriving at last at the great cathedral, touching the hallowed stones, weeping with joy, and giving thanks as the great bells tolled.

At home in France I shall, as always, also remember and listen for those far-distant, celebratory bells.

Ultreia!

I'm definitely going to Mass this evening, as I spend this day in the midst of my rest at my point of departure and eventual arrival : Home to Home.

I love the fact that our PP does his weekday Masses quite Latinate and ad orientem at the High Altar.

St James's Feast Day.jpgSt James' Feast Day in London's St James' Church, Spanish Place. Beautiful church with very interesting story behind. Afterparty was not bad either. Selection of quality Spanish dry meats, cheese and sparkling cava;)
