60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: What Lesson Did I Bring Home From My Camino?
by Diane Wyzga | November 16, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Mukilteo, Washington!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey and your host, Diane Wyzga.
When a Camino pilgrim finally arrives in Santiago she finds herself in a great square gazing up at an even greater Cathedral of St. James the Apostle. The cathedral seats 1,000 persons. A tradition for pilgrims is to attend the Pilgrim Mass whether they are of the faith or not. On the Sunday I was there we were packed in with many pilgrims, some still burdened with their backpacks, seated on steps, in the aisles, leaning against the massive walls. A celebrant welcomed all pilgrims by country according to those who had recently checked in to receive their Compostela – the proof that they had walked the Camino.
The gist of the homily was to say “Thank you!” for everything: for sun, moon, stars, rain, mud, rocks, bedbugs, aches, pains, trials and tribulations, songs, food, rest, strangers, friends, and the person walking along with you.
Remember, said the celebrant, Camino is not just walking The Way. Camino is The Way. As you go home bring Camino with you. You must walk Camino at home. Give thanks. Give help. Buen Camino.
