Pilgrimage and Church

 Church in the village of Gaillac, as seen soon after leaving Cajarc

"Above all I suppose the experience opens my mind to God 
in ways which Church never does. 
Increasingly I’ve become bothered again by aspects of Church: 
by the lack of caring, the focus on power, 
the marginalisation of women inevitable in a male dominated organisation 
and the pompous self regard of many leaders. 
Now I find these feelings fading and taking on a new perspective. 
When I rage about it I want to take them all, Pope included, on pilgrimage. 
I realise I can only take myself."
