The Pilgrim’s Inner Journey

Dear Ones,

I have been having reflections about humility lately—perhaps due to some lessons at work where I think I can do much more than what I have been assigned to.

Or it could be the recent re-discovery of the guide to Saint Gilles’s pilgrim.

Gilles was a man who was born in Athens, Greece, in 650 CE and undertook a long pilgrimage to France before settling in the south of France.

He is well known for living the life of a hermit and taking care of animals—especially a hind that was being chased by hunters.

Let’s keep walking within, dear Ones

Let’s keep enjoying each other’s company

Let’s keep journeying together

Even if the road seems empty, long and tedious to you, it will lead you to enter into yourself. Don’t close this door. You will find there, one of these days, God—God who is in you, you will discover his truth. He will give you his life. Because he is the Way, the Truth, the Life.

Même si la route te paraît vide, longue et fastidieuse, elle t’entraîne à entrer en toi-même. Ne ferme pas cette porte. Tu y trouveras un jour ou l’autre Dieu qui est en toi, tu découvriras sa vérité. Il te donnera sa vie. Car il est le Chemin, la Vérité, la Vie.

Gilles Asselin is inviting you to a Zoom meeting.

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
