Peregrinatio

The Celtic way of pilgrimage “Peregrinatio pro Christo” (Exile for Christ) was usually not about reaching a destination the way most pilgrimages are, but recognising the external  journey itself as a means of progressing on one’s internal journey, the only real destination of which is to reach “the place of our resurrection” when we leave […]

I’ve been expressing my love for God through interpretive liturgical dance for 16 years, and I was invited to dance at an Advent service yesterday.  One of the songs was “Is Your Heart Prepared for a King?“.  As that refrain echoed again and again during my days of practice, I found it particularly challenging.
