The Celtic Christians claim special locations or events as thin spaces; spaces where heaven and earth merge uniting their souls with God. Two photographs were like that for me as well.

On a day trip to a small farm community in Mediana, Spain, I met Tio Leo. Her radiant smile and warm personality welcomed me to her village. I was not just a passing visitor, but also an honored guest. May I remember to treat others on their journeys in such a sensitive and caring way.

The Pilgrimage to Chimayo takes us to the pilgrimage church in the mountains of New Mexico. The ancient doors are open to receive the thousands of pilgrims on their journey to enlightenment and healing. Is there a door closed in your life? If you will release the lock, God’s healing love can enter your sanctuary.
