Walking with Hope
We are only a few days from our first pilgrimage. Prior to leaving for his Asian journey, Thomas Merton wrote, "I go with a completely open mind, I hope without special illusions. My hope is simply to enjoy the long journey, profit by it, learn, change, and perhaps find something or someone who will help me advance in my own spiritual quest."
We are all hopeful for safe travels, healthy voices, and an opportunity to encounter something new.
