Pilgrimage: A Lenten Quiet Day Experience

The spiritual practice of pilgrimage is engrained in the human experience. Often when we think of pilgrimage we think of a journey to a geographical sacred place. But Pilgrimage is never just about the trek to a physical destination point. It is also – and maybe even more so – about the journey within ourselves that will take us through the terrain of the human heart and plumb the depths of the soul. Along the way, we may have a sense that we are closer to our Truer Self. The ultimate destination is Divine Union with the Sacred Source of all that is.

It is hard to venture into the depths of such a journey in the midst of noise and agitation. It is helpful to set out on this Divine Journey from a place where we are acclimatized to stillness and peace where we can begin with our heartbeat in harmony with that of God. This frees us to be led by the Divine and drawn into the mystery.

Allow yourself now to be free from the enticement of distractions and the need to be doing. Allow yourself to be seduced by the Mystery of the Sacred Source of all that is and all that is you.
