In this brief Ad Rem, I am reproducing an electronic flyer advertising the Pilgrimage for Restoration. I cannot recommend this wonderful event more strongly. Our religious go to it every year, bringing two brigades of pilgrims from Saint Benedict Center. To make the pilgrimage with either of the SBC-sponsored brigades — Saint Joseph’s for men and boys, and IHM for single ladies and girls — please contact us.
Why should you go? You may be wondering why you should spend time, effort, and, yes, a little money going to such a thing. After all, the economy is bad and things are very tight. To my thinking, this is all the more reason to go. Our country is suffering economically and morally. When the going gets tough, the spiritually tough get going — traditionally, they go on pilgrimages. Think of it as an Old-World solution to our New-World problems. If we want to establish Christendom in America (again), we should act like Christendom-dwellers acted. Pilgrimages were part of the package.
