WATCH: Sacred Moments from the Camino to Begin Your Lenten Pilgrimage

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 02/10/16

What it's like to walk St. James's Way

If you’ve ever walked the Camino de Santiago, this montage will bring back powerful memories, and if you’ve always wanted to make the Spanish pilgrimage, it will give you a taste of what it’s like. Set to the song “Wonderful Saviour” by Selah, this video reminds us that a pilgrimage is about seeking the sacred and discovering more of who God is and who we are in him.

Each year, Lent is a pilgrimage to the cross, where we wait in faith and hope for the resurrection. Life itself is a pilgrimage. Journeys like the Camino help us get in touch with our status as pilgrims, living and growing from the sacred moments along the way.

Zoe Romanowsky is lifestyle editor and video content curator for Aleteia.
