Day-157, Sunday, Sep 25, Santiago, Spain

Last day of walking was day-156; today, Sunday, was the first full day in Santiago highlighted appropriately by the pilgrims’ mass at noon. We stood in line already at 10:30 in order to get a seat. It was a beautiful mass celebrated by two bishops, assisted by 8 or 9 other priests and capped with the swinging of the botafumeiro–all captured in the attached pictures.

After the mass we stood in line to enter the Cathedral through its Porta Santa, opened only during holy years, and for specially designated years such as 2016, the Year of Mercy.

    What a special way to end your pilgrimage walk, walking through the Holy Door in this Year of Mercy and being part of the Pilgrims Mass.
