To be a preacher and not to be a pilgrim, is impossible….

Pilgrimage takes many forms and variations; it is oriented to a goal at the end of which we anticipate the result of our journey. In the context of the forthcoming Great Jubilee of the Dominican Order, this year is devoted to the topic Lay Dominicans and preaching. And as preaching is associated with pilgrimage, the European Council of Lay Dominican fraternities came up with the idea of the Pilgrim Image of St. Dominic travelling from country to country across Europe.
