‘The Blessing of Space’ along the Pilgrim Path

A weekly reflection from along the Pilgrim Path. This week Fr La is reflecting on ‘The Blessing of Space’


I love to think of Lough Derg as

an out-of-the-way corner of God’s creation.

I wonder if it was this that brought St Davog here

all those centuries ago:

the call to find a place apart.

Even when the Pilgrim Path emerges from the trees,

the landscapes that come into view

have little to strike us as spectacular or splendid.

Perhaps we simply find ourselves grateful

for the sense of space.

Outside in these spaces I am called to notice

what may be moving in the space within.
