Santiago Manana!

I couldn't stand the thought of sitting the bulk of the day in the alburge in Arzua so I kept walking, right through to tomorrow's destination, Santa Irene. So tomorrow is Santiago!

I am excited. This has been the bestest adventure ever! Thanks to all of you who have been posting on this site and have been sending me emails. I couldn't have done it without your support.

You have been blest, Teri! I figured the only way to wrap this Droopy-log up, was prayer--in my own Catholic tradition, yet with respect to those of other faiths reading here, I offer you the following:

Prayer to Saint James the Apostle

O glorious Apostle, Saint James,
who by reason of thy fervent and generous heart was chosen by Jesus
to be witness of His glory on Mount Tabor, and of His agony in Gethsemane; thou, whose very name is a symbol of warfare and victory:
obtain for us strength and consolation in the unending warfare of this life, that, having constantly and generously followed Jesus, we may be victors in the strife and deserve to receive the victor's crown in heaven.

Prayer to St. Theresa of Avila (a Spaniard)

Let nothing disturb thee,
Nothing affright thee;
All things are passing,
God never changeth!
Patient endurance
Attaineth to all things;
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting;
Alone God sufficeth.

And in her native tongue:

Nada te turbe,
Nada te espante;
Todo se pasa;
Dios no se muda.
La paciencia todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene
Nada le falta.
Solo Dios basta.
