Pilgrimage to Italy: Christ Dwelt Among Us
By: John Brock
A pilgrimage is a journey or search of moral or spiritual significance. Typically, it is a journey to a shrine or other location of importance to a person's belief and faith.
And so it was that 43 pilgrims, about half from St. Mary of the Lake, assembled at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport to begin their pilgrimage to Venice, Florence, Sorrento and Rome, Italy. The stories of the four cities we visited, what we saw, the meals, the accommodations are for another article-a travel article, perhaps. This is a story of a spiritual pilgrimage. It is the story of a journey, not a destination.
