Being Catholic: A Reason, A Season or a Lifetime?

It is hard to walk a 500-mile pilgrimage trail without thinking about religion. In 2012 (the year I walked the Camino) 93% of pilgrims who arrived in Santiago reported that their reason for walking was, at least in part, religious.

I was part of that 93%. Having been born Catholic, I knew it would always be part of my past, but I had long been wondering: would it be part of my future?

    Hi Rebecca ! Another thought provoking and good read on busted halo!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I think I understand your search. Throughout my life I have searched and settled with different groups within the Christian community, but have ultimately left each one eventually. I admire your candid post and agree with what you say. Spirituality encompasses such a large part of who we are that it is hard to “hem it up” and make it a static part of us because we are continually evolving.

  3. Thanks Leslie and Glenda. I’m currently attending the Center for Spiritual Living in Asheville.

    I followed a very similar path, Rebecca, trying different “flavors”, including none. In the end, I realized that I wasn’t missing anything in my Catholicism other than the right approach. I was invited to make a Cursillo several years ago and that turned out to be a life changer for me. My love for and appreciation of God (especially His amazing sense of humor!) has made all the difference… in everything! BTW, I’m planning on making a camino, as well.
