Off On Pilgrimage
Sunday, July 29 — After returning from Nocona, I greeted a number of Scouts and leaders at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Fort Worth, along with Fr. Anh Tran, their diocesan Chaplain. They were embarking on a pilgrimage West which was put together by John Ryan and the Scout leaders. This is not only a Scout outing, but a pilgrimage as well, because some of their stops include the Cathedral in Santa Fe, the Loretto Chapel with the miraculous staircase, and the sanctuary of Chimayo. Thanks to John, Fr. Anh, and all who helped to initiate and undertake such an important part of the faith and Scout life of so many of our young people. I met with the Scouts and their leaders, and prayed a prayer of blessing over them from the Book of Blessings prior to their departure from Fort Worth.
