Arrival in Santiago de Compostela 10 August 2014

I have dedicated this Camino to my dear friend Carol who has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

Every morning with my first steps taken, I have prayed that her treatments have been effective in shrinking the tumor.

I waited to go to the Pilgrim’s Mass in the Cathedral until this morning, Monday the 11th since this is the day Carol will receive her prognosis. The mass was very crowded and the butofumerio swung at the end of the mass.
