2018 J2A Pilgrimage: Travel Day (Galicia to Madrid)
After Finisterre, we spent most of the day traveling by bus to Madrid. With some sightseeing in the afternoon, and recapping in reflection groups before and after dinner.
We reflected on the process of return. Again, we reminded the youth that while it is important to share with loved ones stateside their experience here on pilgrimage, this can’t be rushed and sometimes many days or even weeks are required to process all of the very intense experiences from pilgrimage.
We also talked a lot about being in community and what that looks like in specific and concrete terms, especially built upon the foundation of the themes from walking on pilgrimage days #1-5 (see posts for those days).
