Creighton U. St. Xavier U. & John Carroll University, USA, en el Camino 2022

Three Universities from USA came together to walk the Ignatian Way last month of May 2022. 26 pilgrims, boys and girls from Creighton, St Xavier and John Carroll walked the Camino, starting in Loyola and ending their pilgrimage in Manresa. 12 days of spiritual experience, walking and enjoying the landscapes as much as the gastronomy of Euskadi or Catalonia. Points of prayer were given every day for the meditation and mixed groups of sharing helped to go deep in the experience. Very well-prepared liturgies celebrated every day by the Jesuit from Creighton (Jeff Sullivan sj.) guiding the pilgrimage, helped to keep the presence of Jesus very alive all along the experience. A bus helped to shorten the distance and to keep inside the schedule. Long days of 32 km put the pilgrims to the limit, and some felt deeply the penance of walking under the unmerciful Sun. May was hot in Spain, with the first wave of African wind coming just in the middle of the pilgrimage. But with lots of water, everything went right.
