Thoughts on attending mass at Santiago Cathedral

Time of past OR future Camino
CF 2006, CP 2013, Salvador2017,
Inglés 2019
I have just attended, online, the midday transmission of mass. The botafumeiro did not swing, but that was not my goal to see.
I often go in to the 07.30 transmission, but life took me to the midday one today. A bundle of priests and monaguillos, plus a lovely youth choir. There was also a prayer offered by a representative of a group of parents who had walked from Ferrol - maybe? But the point was to emphasise the reason for the season, to use an old fashioned label. To emphasise that the camino is about pilgrimage, and connection with Saint James, and blessing, and faith and back to pilgrimage. Not for the non pilgrims.
Let me say though - anyone who is even slightly caught by a whisper of what in the heck is all this about - follow the whisper! Let it reach deep inside. Buen camino.

The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
My best experiences in Westminster Abbey/Canterbury Cathedral, etc. have been evensong and services. Always a nice (often cool due to the architecture) time to reflect.

Many thanks to moderators for re-placing my post. I am not the most patient at finding suitable threads. 😇

Hi Forum members! I'm in Finisterre but will be back in Santiago this afternoon (July 11) as well as on July 12, 13 (my birthday) and the morning of July 14th. I'll be staying at San Martín...
Hiya, we're looking for a vegetarian restaurant in Santiago De Compostela that's open on Mondays. Please and thank you.
