Through the processions traditionally associated with Holy Week and Easter, Sister Benedicta explores the power, the theology and the spirituality of procession and pilgrimage. She investigates how the simple human act of walking, whether alone or in company, reveals the truth that Christ is available to all. Processions are a tangible expression of our progress with Jesus towards the Father, of savouring the journey and our time with him and with our fellow travellers.
