Alternate Second Reading: “The Pilgrim Journey” by Joyce Rupp from Walk in a Relaxed Manner

“The Pilgrim Journey” by Joyce Rupp from Walk in a Relaxed Manner

To be a pilgrim is to be willing to live with the mystery of what will happen
both interiorly and exteriorly as one walks day after day toward the
destination of a sacred site.

What happens inside cannot be planned or mapped out in the same way
that the physical route is mapped.

Becoming a pilgrim means there are no maps of the heart. One simply
holds onto the hand of the Great Pilgrim and travels with hope that one day
the spiritual benefits of the road will reveal themselves and be understood.
