IN THE EARLY Christian era, many Celtic Christians embarked on a kind of pilgrimage called a peregrinatio. Unlike the pilgrimages to the Holy Land undertaken by Christians in the Middle Ages, a peregrinatioInstead, a peregrinatio is a wandering into the unknown. … Essentially a peregrinatio represents travel for the sake of Love, initiated and sustained by the love of God. It calls the traveler to leave all that is familiar, to let go of security and any goals or desires for life except one: to find the place of one’s own resurrection.
Embarking on a peregrinatio today may not take us to distant lands, but it will take us on a pilgrimage to discover who we are and for what purpose God created us. This transformative journey leads to our true home in God where we give birth to our authentic self.
