I’ve just heard that an old friend of mine, Guy Butterworth, is now undertaking his long-dreamed of pilgrimage, Santiago de Compostela. Justin Welby, ‘enthroned’ yesterday as Archbishop of Canterbury, undertook a ‘pilgrimage of prayer’ around his ‘province’ (the Anglican dioceses in southern England) as he assumes his new role as ‘first among equals’ of the bishops of the Anglican Communion.

It has been said that all life is a pilgrimage. Please spare a prayer for each of them as they undertake theirs.
