Here is today’s update, brought to you by Regina Pilgrimages!

This morning, before we left Arzúa, we visited several churches and prayed a decade of the rosary in each one. Among these churches was the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, which housed beautiful statues of St. James the Apostle. Leaving Arzúa behind, we each set off at our own pace and then met again when stopping at a café to rest and have a refreshment.

We continued our pilgrimage along green hills, and bumping into a herd of cows along the path! until we arrived at the town of Pedrouzo. We walked past lovely hermitages, such as St. Irene’s, before finally reaching Rúa for Holy Mass and dinner at the hotel.

We all retired exhausted, but excited that tomorrow we arrive at our final destination: the relics of St. James in Santiago de Compostela!

It’s time for another update with our friends from Regina Pilgrimages, who are currently making their way along the Camino de Santiago in Spain!


Palas de Rei – Melide (9 miles)

After enjoying a hearty Spanish breakfast, we went out to greet the day – and it was another cold and wet one! Today’s hike was not as long or arduous as the two previous days, but our sore legs and aching bones still had to bear the harsh Galician spring weather.

Our starting point was the Church of San Tirso in Palas de Rei. After a morning sermon and an opportunity to offer up the day’s walk for our intentions, we set off with joyful spirits – but no one more than our chaplain, Fr. Graves, whose spirits were not dampened by the pouring rain! The smile was still on his face and words of encouragement are always on his lips.

Our walk took us past the hamlet of O Coto, a simple village full of rustic charm, and whose name means “the top” or “the high place”. We also passed San Xulian do Camiño, Casanova, O Leboreiro, and Furelos, which boasts a beautiful medieval bridge, and finally we arrived at the day’s end point: the Church of St. Roch in Melide.

Today was very special because we visited the church where a miracle of the confessional took place. A sinner who always confessed the same grievous sins went to confession, and the exasperated priest told him that he would not grant him absolution. At that moment, a crucifix hanging in the church extended His hand, blessed the sinner and said to him, “Your sins are forgiven.” This very confessional is still there, as well as a replica of the miraculous crucifix that forgave the sinner! Such a beautiful story confirms God’s mercy and love for the truly repentant sinner.

We ended the day with Mass at the hotel and a very well-deserved dinner!
