Spiritual Preparation

Your Unique Relationship with God

A pilgrimage is not a ritual or a rite.  There is no prescribed right way or wrong way.  It is an experience of very personal contemplation, reflection and prayer, so each pilgrim approaches it with his or her own unique relationship with God. 

We come as we are.  Some come dancing with joy.  Others come with tears of sorrow.  You might prefer to walk alone with your eyes to the skies.  You might prefer to walk intimately with a spouse or close friend.  You might prefer to sing or chant or pray rosaries with others along the way.  You should feel free to walk your journey in whatever way best opens your heart to the whispers of the Holy Spirit.  We only ask that you respect the sacred spirituality of the other pilgrims, understanding that, while all walk the same path, God has given each his or her own journey.

In preparation, you might find it helpful to do an examination of conscience, asking yourself what is holding you back from fully and freely being the person God created you to be.  What is it you fear?  Who do you need to forgive?

Some might find Eucharistic Adoration meaningful in preparing for the pilgrimage.  Others might find the Sacrament of Penance helpful as a way to bring peace to their hearts.  The biggest thing is that you prepare your heart for openness.  Make room for the Holy Spirit!
