We are on our way for the Wisconsin Way Pilgrimage, 2015.
Day One was beautiful. After Mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, Father sent us off with a pilgrimage blessing. The bright sunshine made for a lovely day of walking; 13.5 miles, with 20 pound packs on our backs, to our first pilgrim site, the St. Thomas Religious Ed Center. Along the way we received greetings from many passers-by, they would ask, "Where are you going?" To which we replied "Heaven!" We arrived tired and a bit sore, but still Joyful in the Lord. After a nice shower and change into clean clothes, my dad, George Belongea, took us to dinner and provided us with some "good cheer". After a good night's sleep, we are ready to head out again.
Pray with Mary, Walk with Jesus.
In Jesus' Most Merciful Love,
