… Jesus wants me to go on Camino. He keeps sending me these little signs, like the friendly Episcopalian I met at a Catholic Church who told me about the Camino he and his wife made. I mean really, the odds of that encounter.
I enjoyed all his magnificent stories and when he got up to leave he said “You know, you are already a peregrino. The minute you decide to make the journey your pilgrimage starts. You’re saving money and training for the Way, that’s part of the journey too.” Then he got up and left me with the departing words, “Buen Camino”, the wish given to other pilgrims you meet along the Way.
It was exciting to hear those words spoken to me for the very first time. Those two words extinguised any trepidtion and doubt I was having about making the journey.
