Me: I am a prideful man. Silence: You are impressed with your accomplishments. I cherish your kindness. Do that.
As I write this I’ve already made it to Compostela de Santiago. Already got my certificate and travel verification of 180 km.
But let’s continue our journey together. This last day unlike the other days, keeping up with the young, a gopher tortoise would move faster than I did.
But I continued to place prayer cards at different churches along the way.
Some I took to the final stop and brought them into the Pilgrim’s Chapel.
As it rained I recalled how the priest blessed his sacred ministerial hands with plain water, ‘Lord, wash away my iniquity and cleanse me of m sins’.
In an analogous way, in our common priesthood of baptism we too can say, Lord, wash me of my iniquity and cleanse me of my sins. I prayed it a lot today.
You can too.
Peace be with you,
