If Christmas indeed celebrates the birth and coming of Jesus, one might probably need to investigate the purpose of his coming: for “the lost sheep of Israel” — the marginalised of society. But what could lost sheep inform us about our Christmas, our lives and our histories? A reflection for Christmas.
In the Summer of 2018, Rinald D’Souza SJ undertook the Camino Ignaciano — an Ignatian pilgrimage that traverses history, culture and spirituality through some of the most beautiful regions of Spain. The pilgrimage is walked with one’s feet, but takes a heart — as much as a mind — to see the world and journey with it. Here Rinald reflects on his journey with his lens.
The Camino Ignaciano is an Ignatian pilgrimage that recreates the sixteenth-century historical route (1522) of Ignatius of Loyola from his hometown in Azpeitia to the cave in Manresa where he underwent a transformative experience and wrote his classic, The Spiritual Exercises. Rinald D’Souza SJ reflects on his experience of walking the Camino.
