Now that we have arranged for housesitting and such, I feel more secure letting you know that our family will be making a pilgrimage this August, including stops at:
- Tyburn in London, where most of the commoners were martyred for the Catholic faith during the English Reformation
- The National Shrine & Basillica of Our Lady of Walsingham, also known as England’s Nazareth, an ancient pilgrimage site destroyed by King Henry VIII and recently restored
- Lourdes, France
- Shrine of Our Lady of Knock, Ireland, also known as Our Lady of Silence
- We’ll finish our trip at the 2018 World Meeting of Families, Dublin
Please comment below with any prayer intentions you would like our family to carry for you as we make this pilgrimage. We would appreciate your prayers as well, as we’ve never done anything like this before, and we are going without a guide… and my French is very, very rusty. Also, please pray that, if it be God’s will, we get to experience the baths at Lourdes.
