I lead pilgrimages almost every year. Of course, in 2020, all my pilgrimages
were canceled as well as two scheduled for 2021- the COVID threat is still
on us and people do not yet feel safe to travel - especially in groups.
Nevertheless, I have presently scheduled two pilgrimages for the summer of
2022. I believe that the feeling of threat will be over and am confident
that many people will desire to travel. After having spent over a year in
isolation and quarantine, we need to break out. And the great jewel of
pilgrimage travel will call us: to go meet the Lord; to be on a search for
God; to journey together. I have been fully vaccinated and encourage
everyone to do so. We need to be safe -so that we can live in the Lord!
