Camino Frances (2006)
Last Sunday was Mission Sunday. I'd like to share with you some words from an article featured on the misallete, recounting the life of Fr. Jimmy Afable as a missionary to the Solomon Islands who wrote his book "Sharing the Gift of Faith" after he came back home. His thoughts on his 'journey' could have been the sentiments of a pilgrim too:

"In other words, I believe it is not the length of time I've spent with people that matters, but the quality of involvement I achieve with them. When the time of my particular leave-taking comes, it is the vitality with which I have walked with the people in the twists and turns of their lives that will matter to them and to me. What will matter is the manner in which I have enabled them to recognize and heed the call of God who has always loved them..."
