I received a request from a member of the forum (defreitas) to ask for your prayers while he and two other parishioners of St. Elias in Brampton, Ontario, are on a 500 year old pilgrimage in Sao Miguel (Azores). They begin on Saturday and walk for seven days around the whole island, from 4 am until 6 pm every day, praying without ceasing the whole time. It is like a traveling monastery. They are fed and given lodging by pious people in the towns they pass through on their journey.
Please pray for Jose, Cyril, and Aidan, along with the other brothers on the pilgrimage.

] If you ever have a chance to attend this pilgrimage, you will not be able to forget it. It is an amazingly prayerful experience.)
