Fr La’s weekly ‘Pause and Ponder’ from along the Pilgrim Path at Lough Derg. This week’s reflection – ‘Together on the Pilgrim Path’.
Together on the Pilgrim Path
On Sunday we gathered at Patrick the Pilgrim
in glorious sunshine to walk the Pilgrim Path.
Above at Davog’s Seat we paused
to view the lough and its islands far below us.
Then down again at Brigid’s Well
we bent to dip the water
as many before us have done in their time,
in hope of healing and of blessing.
A half-way rest to gaze across
at the island where Davog had his monastery,
then back to the quarry where together we did
as the Lord had told us, in memory of him.
