Norte - (2019)
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 along the way, including eight times at the Cathedral itself. I witnessed the botafumeiro up close five times (links attached).

Inspirational! I was moved by watching the videos. I can only imagine how it must feel attending the mass after having completed your Camino journey. Thank you so much for sharing these videos with us and for sharing your time as volunteer in the Pilgrim Office.

I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!
You were reading mass eight times at the Cathedral in SdC and five times you shot the botafumeiro swing?

I guess you're something of a new kind of priests ;)

I am not a priest, but I am a lector at church in the USA. I just became obsessed with doing as many readings as I could all along the Camino.
