Pilgrimage: Cowley Magazine - Fall 2018
“Unless we let go of the familiar, the safe, the secure, unless we take the risk of becoming vulnerable, we cannot grow.”
In this Monastic Wisdom reflection on “Pilgrimage,” Br. Geoffrey Tristram traces the practice of pilgrimage back to the origins of our faith and deep into the inner realms of our hearts.
“We are a people on the move. We may not cover much distance in our lives, at least physically, but as God’s pilgrim people, we are always on the move, slowly but surely making our way through the wilderness of this life, to the land of promise in the next.”
Br. James Koester introduces the issue’s theme of pilgrimage and shares recent news of the community’s life.
