A pilgrimage is not a vacation or holiday trip, nor is it just a chance to visit historic places. It is the exterior demonstration of an interior attempt to go deeper in the love of God and place before Him our lives and our intentions.
Making a pilgrimage in a group gives a unique vitality and efficacy to the trip, since community prayer is always more pleasing in God’s sight. Moreover, it is an opportunity to connect with other sincere Catholics who are fighting alongside us in the good fight of faith.
