MP 031 : Family Pilgrimages

To go on pilgrimage really means to step out of ourselves to encounter God where He has revealed Himself, where His grace has shone with particular splendor, and produced rich fruits of conversion and holiness ~ Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

We as Catholics are incarnational people – part of the richness of being Catholic is that we can see and touch the elements of our faith!  Bringing our children to holy sites like special shrines, homes of the saints, or places of miracles helps us to make the faith real to them.  These aren’t just trips; pilgrimages are spiritual journeys that bring together what we know in our hearts and what we see with our eyes.  In this podcast, we share about two pilgrimages that we recently went on – to the Holy Land and to Philadelphia to see the Holy Father.   Listen in as we discuss how these holy journeys have strengthened our faith and inspired our children.
