Another GREAT pilgrimage!

In the words (on Facebook) of one participant in the Pilgrimage for Restoration 2011, which concluded yesterday it was …

“Another GREAT Pilgrimage. Thanks to all who attended, prayed for, donated to, and otherwise supported PfR 2011! See you next year — God willing — on the road to Auriesville.”

Deo gratias!

Pilgrims are encouraged to write up their stories of pilgrimage and to submit them in the “comments” to this blog post.

YES!, [click here] I’m interested in Pilgrimage 2011, even if I cannot travel to Auriesville.

No, [click here] I don’t envision myself having that much fun.  But maybe next year! Thanks.

Truth even in clouds can get dry

Is floating with ideas in the clouds getting dry?

When we’re at our best, we students pursue truth for a vocation. We’re in our books and college bubble.

Why not take the time to walk with the Truth Himself, living, walking, breathing? Not confined to books or our minds, Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, is the completion of our life as students.

How about moving beyond acknowledgement of that fact and taking steps to actually live it?

And why not take several of those steps on the Pilgrimage for Restoration 2011?

In the footsteps of Martyrs

Looks inviting, eh? Imagine: real life on pilgrimage just got even better.

New dates & days in 2011 mean you too can have ‘the time of your life’ over a ‘long weekend’, Friday through Sunday, instead of a whole week away as in years past.

That makes it lots easier for collegians, home-schoolers & high-schoolers, working families and just about everybody to participate.

Now 12.5 miles shorter and following a more direct route, it’s also easier than ever for pilgrims to join up the last day, just like most pilgrims do at our model and inspiration, the Paris-to-Chartres Pentecost Pilgrimage in France.

There’s something in the works for everybody.

The 16th annual Pilgrimage for Restoration is scheduled for 23-25 September 2011.
