Young people from across the globe and their Jesuit chaperones are making their way to northern part of Spain – to the Basque country where the founder of the Jesuits, St. Ignatius of Loyola, was born – in order to participate in the Magis gathering. Tickets have been purchased, bags are packed and passports are at the ready! But, it also means being out of their comfort zone, traveling in a foreign country and not always bunking down in the most luxurious of accommodations.
Jesuit Father Will Prospero offers some tips in this video to the Magis pilgrims and provides a grounding in the spirituality of pilgrimage, drawing from the experience of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Fr. Prospero’s presentation was given last year during an Apostleship of Prayer‘s “Hearts on Fire” retreat at St. Mary’s University Parish in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.
