Translation of the Compostela from Latin to English

I finished my camino from SJPP to Santiago last June and I received my Compostela. The trouble is that it is written in Latin and I do not know the meaning of what is written on it. Does anyone know how to translate it from Latin into English?

Thanks

Thanks a lot sillydoll. Much appreciated.

By the way I enjoyed most of the camino and I met many interesting people. I was very happy to see some of them at Santiago.

If anyone has lost their Compostela, they can request a duplicate by sending a letter to the Pilgrims Office Office - Rúa do Villar 1, 15704, Santiago de Compostela. Or you can email the office at: peregrinos@archicompostela.org.
You will need to give your full name, where you started from and the day you received the Compostela.
