The Way of St. Francis: Are We There Yet?


The dawn of a new day found us three days out from our last rest day in Rieti, with just three more days to walk until we reach Rome, our final destination.  Our feet are tired, our hips are sore and barking dogs are getting on our nerves.

But we’re still doing it…uphill and down, along miles of ribbon-thin trails through wet thigh-high grass, trails of sticky, gooey mud and trails so steep they must be paved to keep from washing away…and we are having the time of our lives!

But, there are still miles to go and much to see before we’ll feel lucky enough to relax and truly celebrate.

    The road less traveled is the one I’d take. Could for you two. Have you felt the spirit of St. Francis on your trek. I have. I have a statue of him outside and whenever I see it I think of the two of you.


    • I often think about St. Francis making his journeys in not much more than a robe and leather sandals. What should I have to complain about???
