Overview

No person simply desires to be a pilgrim. It is the pilgrimage, an ancient art of visiting a holy place, which calls to the pilgrim-- Draw nigh o'er chapels, come hither this place awaits your presence, shrines erected majestic mysteries reveal thy heart's anchor, Oh pilgrim! Lo, fear forges thy shackles holding courage's step. The pilgrimage is long and difficult. The journey's toil wears a pilgrim's body, mind, and spirit--so much so, he or she has little time to contemplate deeply that path which carries him or her along, as a swift river carrying a lifeless oak branch tossed by the current. An aid for the pilgrim's journey, A Daily Pilgrim Devotional serves the hundreds of thousands called by the spirit to the path. Words of inspiration have been carefully chosen from ancient philosophers, statesmen, religious fathers, and other authors who have written about the pilgrimage and life as a journey. With thirty-five daily entries, the book becomes an instrument and contemplative tool. Furthermore, each daily devotion has space left for personal reflection so that a pilgrim may write his own sentiments at the end of each day.

Table of Contents

"Brosius's daily devotional provides an important reminder of the purpose of pilgrimage and a legitimate addition to one's scallop shell of quiet. He draws on many of the world's great wisdom traditions, and that eclecticism goes to the heart of the camino. From the stoicism of Seneca in the first century to the soulful introspection of poet Cees Nooteboom writing in the twenty-first to the fierce love for the beloved of Sufi mystic Rumi--and in-between we are fed tapas from the Psalms. A worthy treat for the soul."

--John Brierley, author of Camino Guides
