About This Trip

The Way of St. Francis, or the Via Francigena, follows the 150-mile path that St. Francis of Assisi would have likely traveled on his way to Rome. Pilgrims will walk through the stunning Italian countryside, stopping along villages and conversing with locals as they make the same journey that St. Francis made almost 800 years ago.

A pilgrimage is a metaphor for and a reality of our lives. As we walk we see how our lives are like a voyage filled with joy, effort, beauty, suffering, surprises, goals, adventure, love and expectation. But our life is not only "like" a pilgrimage, it is in fact a pilgrimage from birth to death; in this world we are only “strangers and sojourners” (1 Pe. 2:11). "For we brought nothing into the world, just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it." (1 Tim 6:7) We are all pilgrims walking through, and this life, this passage, is the time we are given to reach the eternal goal, IT IS THE TIME OF SALVATION. Let us enjoy the journey, love it and live it! Pope Francis reminds us: “I want people to go out! I want the Church to go out to the street! Jesus, with His Cross, walks with us…!”
