It is a commitment to set our hearts on pilgrimage; to survey the beauty of the Christ, the Cross and the power of the Resurrection every single day.
For some who have undertaken the challenge before, it is a revisiting of old paths. For others, it will be a venture into something mysterious and a little scary.

He is in the pages of our Bibles, between the lines of our journal entries, he is the whisper in the silence as we wait and the muse as we create.
