Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Summer is a time for adventure. This is why we love summer trips, baseball games, and heading to the lake.
This last week I was privileged to spend time with three other Lincoln priests in southern California. One of my priest friends really loves the beach and the other loves beautiful road trips. Hence, they decided to travel from San Diego to Monterrey. I suggested we turn the vacation into a pilgrimage since we do get ten days of pilgrimage a year. So we visited eight of the twenty-one Catholic Spanish missions founded by Saint Junipero Serra.
It was amazing to see how these missions became the foundation of our nation's 31st state. These missions brought stability, culture, agriculture, wine, education, and the faith to Native Americans.
I encourage you to turn your family vacations or sporting events into pilgrimages also. You may visit a local cathedral, shrine, or a beautiful Catholic church. Pilgrims live for a sense of adventure.
"To seek God is the greatest adventure; to find Him is the greatest success; and to fall in love with Him is the greatest romance" St. Augustine of Hippo once wrote. And it all starts with our desire for adventure. After all, we are just pilgrims here on earth wandering to our Eternal land of heaven.
