Pilgrim’s Log – 10 Days of hiking from Le Puy-en-velay to Conques.


 

Time: 4:27 am. Location: Le Puy-en-velay Village, Southern France.

Dear Journal,

Preparing for a physically demanding 10-Day journey up the Pyrenees on the Santiago de Compostella track. These pre-dawn climbs are really going to test my fitness and self-discipline. Nevermind.

Go time. St. James et St. Josemaria – PRAY FOR US!

“Conquer yourself each day from the very first moment, getting up on the dot, at a set time,without granting a single minute to laziness. If, with the help of God, you conquer yourself in that moment, you’ll have accomplished a great deal for the rest of the day. It’s so discouraging to find yourself beaten in the first skirmish!”

– St. Josemaria Escriva

…a little encouragement for all of us who face that same battle at times: Perseverance & Self-Discipline.
