First Day; We Arrive at Fatima
by Steve Ray on September 8, 2021
It is with great joy that we received our pilgrims at the Lisbon airport this morning in Portugal. It is a smaller group than we’ve taken in the past but we’re all excited after 18 months grounded to be back on the road with an international pilgrimage.
Today we had Mass at the birthplace of St. Anthony (Fr. James’ homily here.)
We will be driving to Fatima, Coimbra, Santiago de Compostela, Loyola and Lourdes and a lot between.
We will see the Eucharistic miracle at Santarém, the Tomb of Saint James, have Mass where St. Ignatius of Loyola converted and enjoy Lourdes with no crowds! I will be posting videos each day, Lord willing.
