Download the pilgrims’ daily prayer, composed by St. Nicholas of Flüe

image_st_nicholas_of_flue_8-2013 “Pray without ceasing.” It’s never too early to join fellow pilgrims in prayer. To make it easier to remember and recite the short prayer each day, every pilgrim is asked to print it out, post it to the refrigerator in the kitchen, leave it at one’s night table next to the bed, tape it to the mirror in the bathroom … Ok, you get the point.

So, click here to download the prayer of St Nicholas of Flüe.

Spread the word, too!

Post the file to your Facebook page or blog.

Print it out, and take copies to your parish or church events, and distribute them to friends, family, parishioners, and fellow Catholics everywhere. (more…)

That’s because every pilgrim, without exception, must also report to (more…)
