Enjoy the photos of my recent pilgrimage visiting shrines of the Blessed Mother and saints as we made our way up Portugal, across Spain, into France and on to Bosnia-Herzegovina. This pilgrimage was spiritually fulfilling. May you have an opportunity to experience these sites.

September 2018 was the beginning of my pilgrimage ministry. I wanted to go back, in gratitude, to St. James and walk the last 117km or 60 miles to the Compostela de Santiago. In addition to the Camino, my tour included stops in Burgos and Leon as well as the Western coastal towns of Muxia and Finisterre. 

 

November 2018 was the pilgrimage to Jordan, Holy Land, and Egypt.  These pictures are only a visual taste of these countries and can't begin to express the spirituality, culture, and people of these places.  Some highlights would include: experiencing Petra, staying at the King David Hotel, swimming in the Dead Sea as well as the Holy sites in Jerusalem and outside the city. In Egypt, we visited the apparition of Mary and the Cairo museum before heading to Giza to experience the pyramids, and river cruising along the Nile. Important tomb sites of the pharaohs were explored with our Egyptologist.
