Thought of Saint Augustine
I thank you, Lord, my joy and my glory, my hope and my God. I thank you for your gifts to me. Keep them unharmed for me: they will be the making of me, and I shall be with you for my being is your gift.
(Confessions I, 20)
I thirst in this journey, I thirst as run ahead but will be sated only when I come to the end.
(En. in ps. 41, 5)
Do not despair, you who are blind. Come close to him, and you will be healed. You who are blind, come close to him and you will be illuminated.

Camino de Santiago - August 2017


A group of young people from Madrid, Spain and St. Augustine's College, San Diego, USA made a pilgrimage of 'Camino de Santiago' organised by the International Youth Commission of the Order. The walk began from Villafranca on 4th August 2017 and concluded with arrival in Santiago de Compostela on 12th August 2017.

Most of the participants who met for the first time, shared experiences together and a strong bond of friendship was created. Unity and communion sustained them all through as they came to a better understanding of themselves as pilgrims in life making effort to reach the common destination. On arrival, they took part in the Eucharistic celebration for pilgrims presided by the Archbishop of Santiago de Compostela, His Grace Most Rev. Julián Barrio Barrio who reminded all pilgrims to live according to the Gospel without fear or shame. He also stressed that the world of today needs authentic and courageous Christians like St. James the Apostle.

The Camino was a wonderful and spiritually rich exercise which the participants appreciated as it will remain a part of their faith and life story.

Special thanks to the Prior General for his letter of encouragement and closeness (sent and read) during the pilgrimage, to all the participants, their parents and the Provinces who assisted to make the Camino possible.
