To a place like Santiago de Campostela. Or Lourdes. Or Guadelupe. Like ashes on Ash Wednesday, it’s timeless and Catholic.
Lent is often described as a pilgrimage, and that makes sense. Like a pilgrimage, Lent has movement. It's going somewhere.
But there's more to a pilgrimage than just movement and a holy destination. It's also about space for God on the way.
Not accidentally finding an isolated moment, but intentionally making space for God.
That’s what all of the extra things in Lent are there for. To help us intentionally make space for God.
Every step of the way.
