Today we walked along a ancient little canal. Fall colors were in today. We are walking though the flatlands so only a town here and there. We continued to stop in the churches and pray. That feels like my purpose these days. It is hard to resist saying a prayer and lighting a candle when the opportunities present themselves.
Ricardo, Natalie, and I continue to be a trio but we run into the larger group on a regular basis throughout the day. We had a communal meal tonight at the albergue. The Italian guys wanted to cook us pasta. The nuns sang grace. It was a beautiful meal.
Afterwards we went to pilgrims mass. There was a particularly sweet blessing at the end of the service. I counted eight different nationalities there. The priest took time to bless us individually at the end. The nuns gave us a small paper star and told us the story behind it. I was touched and I feel blessed as I get ready for rest.
