Are you hurting right now? Do you feel alone? Jesus knows how it feels to be let down by others, and has promised he will never leave you nor forsake you. Even when it feels most lonely, we are not alone in the wilderness. The one who made your heart beat hears it. We’re never alone.

Learning to Pray as We Walk (El Camino de Santiago de Compostela, Part 3)
Walking the Camino is an extremely personal journey – solitary at times, and lonely at others. Those who journey the Camino are called peregrinos (pilgrims).

How incredible that this utterly awesome and mysterious One waits for us to stop long enough to say, “I love you, too.”
