From the Pastor
Reflections on our Covid-imposed pilgrimage and journey.
It’s been just over six months since the coronavirus inserted itself so deeply into our lives. From the beginning we have struggled to find ways to sustain our spiritual lives even as we suffered our distancing from one another. Our faith intimated to us that it might even be possible our spiritual lives could find an opportunity to grow while thrusting down deeper roots.
With thoughtfulness we chose the symbol of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage as a guide for our movements in Church. It was a practical choice, i.e. we needed guidance regarding our movements around church as a safeguard against spreading Covid-19. It was also a spiritual choice because we had the sense our journey through this troublesome time might hold an opportunity to be a pilgrimage for each of us as individuals and for us as the parish-community of St. Vincent’s.
If we see and experience this time as a pilgrimage, there are some things to be on the lookout for and be mindful of.
