… I hope this movie doesn’t popularize the Camino so much that it gets flooded, more so than usual, with new agey types skipping along Spain high on Hollywood ideologies. I’m purposefully waiting till October on the hope that the trail will be virtually deserted.
Well, I suppose my small group will have to Catholic it up if that becomes the case. If I can talk Fr. Erik in going with us maybe he can celebrate mass on the Camino itself. And maybe for a bottle of Rum he’ll walk it in a cassock. Hell, for two bottles of Rum I’d hike it wearing a cassock and sing Salve Regina all the way.
This way to the Rum.
On a serious note; I had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of a very fine and devout young man while visiting in Rome. Mr. Smeaton is currently making part of The Way with a group of friends. Pray for him, his travel companions, and Juventutem London.
