Pilgrimage in the Frost

A weekly reflection from along the Pilgrim Path. This week Fr La is reflecting on ‘Pilgrimage in the Frost’


I am on pilgrimage through a frosty morning.

From above at Davog’s Seat, the sanctuary emerges from the morning mist.

Below on the Path, clean winter sunlight highlights a golden treescape.

And all along the way, light and frost in a shared miracle

invite me to attend to the intricate detail I usually just pass by:

the rosette of a thistle,

the umbrella of a seed-head,

the yearly age-rings in a stump,

the orderly patterns, leaf by leaf, in a tangle of bramble.

My pilgrim’s prayer: Lord, that I may see!

Fr La Flynn
