“Happy are those who live in your house, continually singing your praise!
Happy the pilgrims whom you strengthen, to make the ascent to you” (Psalm 84, 5-6)
The Camino de Santiago (Way of St James) is a network of ancient trails across Western Europe leading to the city of Santiago de Compostela, the supposed final resting place of the body of St James the Great, a prominent disciple of Jesus Christ.
As Christians, setting off on the journey of our physical and spiritual way is an opportunity to visit French Moyen age villages, to walk on the steps of millions of pilgrims to high spiritual places, and to remind us of our spiritual pilgrimage on the way back to our Father's house.
We have intention to do the Way of Saint James from Le Puy en Velay to Compostela for several years:
2021: Le Puy en Velay to Estaing
2022; Conques to Cahors ( by Rocamadour)
We continue the Way of Saint James on the second stage from Conques to Cahors by Rocamadour where there is one of the famous sanctuaries of the Blessed Virgin Marry. We hope that you find yourself the meaning of being a Christian by setting off on the journey as said in a chapel on the way " If I become a pilgrim, is it not for a life transformed by Jesus Christ? "
