A Run, A Pilgrimage, A time to run with Him

A day before we set in for the lenten break, we have decided to do an unusual Visita Iglesia.   Normally, we go to nearby provinces to spend time with Him.  To reflect, recollect, and retreat.  After all, He is the reason of our existence.  The reason for all the blessings that we are continuously receiving.  And the reason why we are in a better state of health to enjoy running.

Tomorrow, Maundy Thursday, Ems and I will be going around to have our 2010 version of the Visita Iglesia.  We were so blessed to finished a number of 3k’s, 5k’s, 10k’s, 21k’s, and one 42k race.  Now, it’s time to use those muscles to visit the different churches of the Diocese of Paranaque (the southern side).

We will be starting from our home parish, The San Isidro Labrador Parish located at Almanza Uno, Las Pinas.

We hope to finish our running pilgrimage within 3 to 4 hours visiting and praying in these churches.  It’s a different way for us to pray the Station’s of the Cross.
