I understand that if it weren’t for the church throughout history, how would we know about Christ? But my God is a God who is still speaking, and so it is right that I am on my way to Assisi, where St. Francis literally spoke with a God, and where I can speak with God, too.
I arrived this morning and have been out and about. How beautiful is this? Very grateful. I feel like I'm walking the way of the pilgrim.
