Pope Francis describes the Internet as offering “immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity. This is something truly good, a gift from God".
Three pictures on this page show Sceilig Michael, an ancient monastic site off the south west coast of Ireland. It was the culminating point of a pilgrimage route which ran from Palestine to Ireland. Today, many people will know Sceilig Michael as the location for the last scene in the 2015 film, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Ancient meets new!
Ancient meets new, too, in our 21st century pilgrimage. In bygone days, pilgrims typically stopped at holy sites along their way, to refresh themselves for the next stage of their journey. Today, our touch screens or keyboards can lead us on our path; websites can be the stopping points where we draw strength for our continued journey.
We have set up NEW PILGRIM PATH to share with our fellow travellers of all Christian denominations some of the rich online resources we have found. We hope they will help you as you seek encounter with the person of Christ, the Word of God in our midst.
