Oh sorry, even it the title of this blog post is in Finnish, the post itself is in English. Please don't get confused!
Last weekend I took part in the Saint Henry’s Way Pilgrimage. In this post, I would like to share with you my experience of the pilgrimage. In a future post I plan to write some of my personal reflections.
Being and becoming a Saint is unpredictable, just as we pray in the Hail Mary:
Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
There were around 30 people from Helsinki for the Mass. We had a short procession towards the harbor, we sang all together. By the time people arrive at the small island, Fr. Tri prepared the altar. Thanks be to God, the weather was great and without rain. It was a bit windy, but when the Mass started, it became better.
Father Tri gave a brave homily. Unfortunately I only understood a little bit. If you were there and you remember it, please don't hesitate to share with us! At the end of the Mass, he blessed the Lutheran pilgrims.
Well, I enjoyed a lot the weekend and the company. As well as, it helped me a lot to meditate. I will share my reflections in the next post, as this is going to long already. Thank you for reading, and if you don't like being in pictures, please let us know.
