Here’s another travel piece worth sharing: Rick Steves’ “Five Most Spiritual Places in Europe.”
From his list, I’d most like to visit Assisi, as I have felt a strong connection to St. Francis from my elementary school years, when I attended a Catholic school in Philadelphia.
I loved being in church singing the song:
Make me a channel of your peace;
Where there is hatred let me please sow love;
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord;
Where there is doubt, true faith in You.
The Sarah McLaughlin version is my favorite; listen to the sample on Amazon and see for yourself!
I’d also like to add a visit to Chartres to my list. I would like to drive toward the town and see the church TOWERING in the far distance, in the same way that pilgrims would have seen it back in medieval times.
