We are a pilgrim people. Your pilgrim road might be cobbled and worn, or it might be full of potholes, sinkholes, or broken concrete, but all of us walk this pilgrim road together. Watch this video inspired by chapter one of Braving the Thin Places: Celtic Wisdom to Create a Space for Grace.

Thank you the pilgrims road helps me to know god a little better knowing god is within.
“Truth should be the very breath of our life. When once this state in the pilgrim’s progress is reached, all other rules of correct living will come without any effort, and obedience to them will be instinctive” – Mahatma Gandhi
Brokenness is necessary to let the light in, to see who we are and to begin to see just a little of who God is. Then we know that we can cherish this brokenness with the golden lacquer that highlights a more beautiful awareness of the healing power of God! Thank you for these beautiful images.
I am learning so much from this read a long. It is creating a new awakening in me. It has already brought immense healing. God is so close! I need to continue the journey of finding me. Thank you.
Thanks Julianne and Loyola Press. We all must discover, on our pilgrim journeys, that we are loved by God to the unending degree. Through this discovery, we then must be love to one another. Pray for peace. Amen.
Chapter 1 really hit home with me. I realize that I do not really know who I am, having defined myself by the jobs I worked at and my volunteer activities. I retired in July 2020, and my volunteer activities stopped because of Covid. My parish closed, and I am adrift looking a new way to identify myself, trying to move beyond my physical limitations, seeking a closer relationship with God
I needed this,thank you for posting….
Thank you for this journey. Today I am thinking of the pilgrim road that my ancestors traveled over seas and land to the US from Ireland more than 160 years ago. My heart goes out to all of those who are on the roads leading away from home today.
I needed this today. Thank you.
