A wonderful day off here in O Cebrerio. We celebrated mass tonight at the oldest church on the Camino. There is even a reliquary with a Eucharistic miracle.
The priest is a Franciscan who celebrated a beautiful mass and then afterwards called all of the pilgrims up to gather around the altar for their blessing. He had each of us read the blessing in our own language. I was fortunate enough to be the one to read it in english. They were Italians, Koreans, Polish, and of course Spanish.
After the blessing he gave us each a small stone with a yellow arrow painted on the stone. He reminded us that the Camino takes us to Santiago but also beyond to our own lives. Hr preached a message tonight that reminded us that the way of God is love. We are to take that love into every day of our lives.
Included is a picture of a large prayer near the statues of St Benedict and St Francis. This wonderfully captured the spirit of the homily tonight. The album from today you can find here.
Buen Camino ❤️🙏
