Father Charles offered the Pilgrims' Mass tonight (in English) at the Santa Eulalia Church in O Pedrouzo (Spain). He was a serious-minded fellow, but flashes of humor and personality shone through. I would like to walk a kilometer or two with this guy.
At one point in his message from Ephesians he raised his voice and with a said sharply: "Be the church!" Everyone jumped.
Our little group of travelers has marched through centuries and centuries of church buildings on the way to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. It was a timely message.
Preach on, Father Charles!
