Pilgrims in Rome for the Pauline Jubilee Year can follow the footsteps of the Apostle to the Gentiles through a special tour and earn a special certificate the "Paolina"

Benedict XVI is scheduled to inaugurate the jubilee at Saturday evening's vespers, in a ceremony at St. Paul's Outside the Walls. The Pauline year ends June 29, 2009, feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.
The Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi is supporting the initiative with hospitality for the pilgrims and a special Pauline itinerary, presented in Rome earlier this month.
The Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi is the Vatican institution whose mission it is to evangelize through pastoral tourism and the ministry of pilgrimage.
Father Cesare Atuire, delegate administrator of ORP, said St. Paul is a special protector of the organization, "because [he] was a great pilgrim. It is said that he journeyed between 14,000 to 16,000 kilometers (8,700 to 9,950 miles) in his time. And what does a pilgrim do? During his journey, as he walks, a pilgrim evangelizes, and this is what Paul did.
"He traveled, preached the Gospel, was a witness of the Resurrection in all the places he visited. And I believe that we, too, who are trying to take man through the streets of the world, also want our travel to be a form of evangelization."

4 main stops
The itinerary for the Pauline tour includes four essential stages in following the Apostle and his proclamation. The papal Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, where the saint's body rests, is the first stop. The Abbey of the Three Fountains, where he was martyred, is the second. Pilgrims will also stop at St. Peter's Basilica and the Basilica of St. John Lateran.
Upon completing the journey, pilgrims will receive a type of diploma, the "Paolina," in keeping with the tradition of having a momento of their journey on the roads of Europe.
The pilgrimage also includes five secondary stages: two points of Paul's residence in Rome -- the churches of San Paolo alla Regola and of Santa Maria in Via Lata; the Mamertine prison, near the Roman Forum, where he was last in prison before his martyrdom; the basilica and catacombs of St. Sebastian on the Via Appia, where Peter's and Paul's bodies rested for some decades; and the church of St. Prisca on the Aventine, residence of Sts. Aquila and Priscilla, who looked after Paul and accompanied him on his mission to Greece and Asia Minor.
The time allotted for the pilgrimage is one or three days.
And to prepare for the pilgrimage, the priest recommended reading St. Paul's letters, "because he was a person who, like us, did not know Christ, in the sense that he did not meet Jesus while he was on earth. He had the experience of the Risen One and this experience transformed his life. He lived it with a great explosion of freedom. For us, especially in the West, where there is a certain exhaustion in the experience of faith, to rediscover Paul gives us enthusiasm to carry on."

The Abraham Path Initiative is a fascinating project. Running from Turkey down through to Jerusalem, it traces Abraham's path through the Middle East. The aim is to unite people of all nations who can trace their history and faith back to Abraham. To me it just sounds like a fab walk. I'm hoping to try some of the new National Hiking trail in Jordan next year.

The Abraham Path is not open to individual pilgrims yet. However, they arrange guided walks for different interest groups. If you are between 18 and 30 years old you could join a walk next month:

We are pleased to share with you a special opportunity for you or someone you might know: a two-week journey through Palestine, including a historic inaugural walk to open the Abraham Path in Palestine, for students and youthful participants ages 18 - 30. The trip will take place June 30 - July 13, 2008.
Highlights of the two-week journey include: three days of walking on the Abraham Path through Palestine to allow for a slow-paced, meaningful experience journeying through villages and towns; cultural exchange with Palestinian university students who will walk the path along with international students; home stays and opportunities for interaction with local residents; and many occasions to experience and learn about the rich history and culture of the area.
This is an incredible opportunity to experience the warmth and hospitality of the region and to see the Middle East in a way not often portrayed by the media. We encourage you to pass the word! Please feel free to forward this email and the attached brochure/itinerary which provides information about this special journey.

Costa Rica -

This year, 2 million believers are expected to make the pilgrimage on foot, by horse, bus or even on their knees to honor La Negrita, a small black statue of the Virgin Mary, as well as to give their respects having had their prayers answered. Some devotees walk up to 300 kilometers to reach their destination. This pilgrimage coincides with the feast day of the Virgin of the Angels held on Aug. 2, which commemorates the miraculous appearance of a small carved image of the virgin mother to a child.
Over 50 officials are keeping an eye on the traffic and the pilgrims as they approach the Basilica this year, and 350 volunteers will be present to help out along the way as well.

An ancient pilgrimage has been revived in Russia after years of Soviet suppression. Pilgrims walk 180 kilometres (approx. 112 miles) for 5 days through the countryside, woods and bogs. Every two hours, the journey stops for a service by the roadside, as well as 30-40 minutes' rest.
This year alone, over 20,000 pilgrims participated in the walk from Kirov to Velikoretskoye. Despite every trial nature sends along - snow, heat, rain, hailstones, swarms of mosquitoes, callouses, tired anklebones, sleepless nights and unbearable weariness, the majority of pilgrims nevertheless arrive at their destination.

When you see the photograph you'll wonder why Santiago pilgrims complain of crowds on the camino! Perhaps this is what pilgrimage should be like??

If anyone is interested in walking the Shikoku pilgrimage, I have about 30 documents (saved over a period of three years) that I would be happy to share.
Three years ago a friend walked the 88 Temple pilgrimage and carried my photograph (I was a virtual pilgrim!) which he presented at each temple for prayers.
It is one of the many pilgrimages which is on my wish list and even if I never walk it, its been fun collecting info on it.

Many, various, and continuing.

In some lifetime or other I too hope to make the Shikoku pilgrimage. It ranks right up there with Santiago de Compostela in my "calling to my heart" list, dating back to my fondness for Japanese woodcut prints (which always have a pilgrim shrine in them somewhere) and tough old Zen Buddhism. And maybe even sushi!

Here in North Central New Mexico there is an annual Easter (Holy Week) Pilgrimage: Chimayo. Not far from beautiful Santa Fe, where one can dine like royalty or attend world class opera wearing cowboy boots and a Stetson, or sip Margaritas on an adobe rooftop watching glorious sunsets, is an annual rite that draws people from all over the world. While this is no Camino, it is worth participating in (an offers a great excuse to explore the region that is rich in diverse cultures, fabulous scenery and a ruggedness that many people never experience in their lifetime. Following are a few TV newsclips from You Tube - you will get a sense of this very local pilgrimage.
