  • Pause For Thought

    From Father Christopher Jamison - Benedictine Monk:

    "Summer is a great time for festivals of all kinds. There’s the Glastonbury Festival where everybody gets covered in mud while listening to amazing music. Or the Edinburgh Festival that combines world class art with comic madness on the Fringe. The list of summer festivals is endless and you may have your favourite. My absolute favourite only occurs once every three years. It’s a festival that’s just for young people and it’s by far the largest youth festival in the world. It’s called World Youth Day and this year it’s is in Madrid in mid August this year. Over 3000 young people from the UK are going together with some 2 million others from all round the world. WYD was last held in Sydney where office workers just left their desks in the middle of the day and joined in the fun on the streets. The whole event is organised by the Catholic Church for all young people not just Catholics and its free.

    For many people, summer festivals are turning points in life. They might meet the person they’re going to marry or they could discover some music that stays with them for the rest of their life. When we leave our comfort zone and set off to join a crowd of people sharing the same desire for music or faith or friendship, then we cross the frontiers of our life and discover new territories. That’s what the tradition of pilgrimage is all about. On pilgrimage, people live in unfamiliar ways with complete strangers and miraculously life takes on new meaning. Their faith in God is renewed and they find that faith goes together with living life to the full. So if our summer travels have a bit of pilgrimage about them then, in the midst of uncomfortable journeys and festival crowds, our lives are transformed for the better."
