Greetings everyone, This evening my hubby and I went to watch a wonderful movie called The Way. The Way is an American drama film. Maybe some of you saw it already, especially those of you in the US. For those who have not seen it yet, I highly recommended it. After the tragic death of his son (in the movie Emilio Estevez), Martin Sheen embarks himself 'unexpectedly' in the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. The Camino de Santiago is a famous, very ancient and traditional pilgrimage throughout France and Spain. It gifts the sojourners (many of them are strangers from different nations) with 800 kms of magnificent views (the photography is breathtaking). Indeed it is a life time experience. On the way Martin meets a woman from Canada, and two other men from Ireland and Holland. The four characters in the movie walk different experiences and have different aims throughout the pilgrimage. The tensions and the communal harmony develops as the pilgrims reveal in honesty their own struggles and grief. Despite their obvious differences, physically and psychologically, they walk in a parallel fashion and all strive for a shift of paradigms in their lives. Finally being strangers, they experience change together in community. I could not think but of the common theme of pilgrimage, the TMS sojourn that all of us in this website are experiencing. Despite the fact that we are strangers, from many places on earth, we walk a similar experience and the healing happens in community. How wonderful this is!
