The Traditional Pilgrims Prayer at the Cruz de Ferro

‘Lord, may this stone, a symbol of my efforts on the pilgrimage that I lay at the foot of the cross, weigh the balance in favour of my good deeds some day when the deeds of my life are judged. let it be so.’

    I’d very much like to share this blog with you all. Alan is, as you will note from his posts, in the midst of planning his Camino for 2018. I particularly loved this post and thought you might too, it’s so evocative. It’s thrilling to be reading about the start of another pilgrim’s journey and reading Alan’s blog reminds me of my preparations. Buen Camino

    • For those that don’t know, there is a pilgrims tradition to take a stone from their home with them on Camino. The idea is that you leave the stone at the iron cross at Cruz de Ferro along the route of the Camino Francés and say the pilgrim’s prayer, thereby leaving behind any moral or emotional baggage you have been carrying around with you.
