Carrying Prayers for Others

[Phyllis Haislip]

Pilgrims light candles in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem

It is our custom on pilgrimage to carry prayers (special intentions) for people and leave the prayers in a holy place. Tuesday last I attended a wise women’s group and a Muslim woman asked for a special prayer for her husband. I said I’d try to leave it in the right place. She said to leave it at Nazareth or Bethlehem-anywhere, the whole place was holy. And then there was my hairdresser who sent along four prayers although she said God was everywhere.

  1. Wonderful picture. I’ve used it to continue to introduce parishioners to the soulcuracy.com blog so we can all vicariously tag along with you on pilgrimage. I’m so glad you shared your eagerness for this trip with your friends so they could send special prayers with you for them. What a wonderful act for them and you. Blessings, Ann
