Stage Two of the Annual Tochar Walk – March 21st

Stage two of Tóchar Padraig went off without a backward glance on Sat 21st March 2015. For a change the weather conditions were perfect as we made our way along the eleven mile sacred path towards Croagh Patrick. The young Pilgrims were made very aware of how steeped in the religious history of our ancestors we were. We journeyed as pilgrims carrying our own intentions with us and eventually handing them over to God. Mass was celebrated at the rock of Boheh by Fr. Pat Farragher where we all gathered and listened intently to the Gospel story of Jesus on the road to Emmaus. The young pilgrims were reminded of their own life’s journey and how Jesus speaks to us in the very ordinary details of our lives. Their hearts like those of disciples were burning within them as the scriptures were explained to them. “It was what happened along the way that they remembered”. All in all a wonderful experience.
