Spiritual Pilgrimage – Following God’s path

July 11, 2015

“And the priest said to them, “Go in peace. May the presence of the Lord be with you on your way.
            Judges 18:6 – NKJV

Being a part of the Papal Audience was by far the most spectacular event!

We sat in the front row so close to Pope Francis that we could have reached out to touch him. His close proximity to me was enough to make my heart skip a beat.

The video at the end, created by my talented husband, is made from pictures he took during the trip and some that we had taken on an earlier trip to Rome.

There is music used with the video, however, due to copyright restrictions, you won’t hear it.

I wanted you to imagine how this video came to life by using the following outstanding musical artists:

How great thou art/Steel & Wood played by Amy Grant and Vince Gill
Pachelbel’s Canon D/The Ultimate Canon by Jean-Francois Paillard Chamber Orchestra
Time to say goodbye/Romanza by Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman
