    Hospital de Orbigo

    Stopped here after a 15 km walk marking the end of the Castilian plateau. Tomorrow the landscape will begin to change on the gradual climb to Astorga and then up into the mountains again into the Maragatos region, a rather formidable and isolated reach filled with stalwart souls who weather deep winter snows up there.

    Today as I walked I laid upon the altar of my heart all those in positions of leadership in this world—Those who mentor others who are seeking, shepherds leading their various flocks in all walks of life, and those who are leaders of nations both great and small:
    Holy Watcher, uphold those who lead, help them to find their sovereignty that they may bear with Your grace the mantle and crown of Wisdom, and may they find their rest by abiding in the heart of Love. May they walk in Love and Wisdom all the days of their lives. Amen.

    Villares de Orbigo, Castilla y Leon

    May 24, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Staying at an albergue with famous hospitalera Christine from Belgium who has been hosting here fabulously for over six years. A documentary was filmed about her albergue, and indeed she deserves great praise. I’m so glad I happened to stop here and was one of only four pilgrims to share a wonderful homemade dinner with Christine, and a comfortable night in her spotless refuge. So grateful!Read more
