Modern Pilgrimages Help People To Witness To Faith

In The Irish Catholic's article, "Modern Pilgrimages Help People To Witness To Faith" the idea of 'praying with your feet' is brought into view. More young people have been taking this journey to recall and reconnect with their faith in different countries and religious sites.  

"Even before Christianity began, the ancient people of Israel made pilgrimages to the Temple in Jerusalem. Embarking on this journey had a faith dimension. Even in the infancy narratives of Jesus we encounter shepherds and the Magi all making different types of journeys. Each of these journeys began with an unknown curiosity and led to an encounter with Jesus. These encounters effected change. This is what a pilgrimage does by trying to restore some spiritual balance in the life of the pilgrim. - The Irish Catholic
