July 25: HAPPY FEAST OF ST. JAMES THE GREATER!

Today is a solemnity here in Spain since Santiago or St. James was the one who evangelized this country. Here you have some photos of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela which I took (except the 1st and 4th) during a visit 4 years ago.

Pilgrims from all over the world flock to the Cathedral using the different routes of the Camino de Santiago (St. James’ Way) by foot, or by bike for several hundreds of kilometers to gain an indulgence and give an embrace to the statue of St. James as shown in the video. You will also find the tomb of the saint in the said Cathedral.

Happy viewing! Fr. Rolly A.
