Routes Teresian-Sanjuanistas of the Spirituality of Ubeda
I am pleased to welcome you to Path of Light, a worldwide pilgrimage promoted by the Order of the Discalced Carmel with which we will celebrate the V Centenary of the Birth of our founding mother, Saint Teresa de Jesús.
With Path of Light, we want to make a reconnaissance and homage to this aspect so particular of the life of Saint Teresa as it was walking; and walking –as the poet would say- , make path, guide us in the faith and orient in the truth. A path for which we have a support really meaningful to all of us: the original cane of the Saint, that will leave Spain to go over thousands of kilometers.
“Together let's walk”, Teresa used to say. And together we will walk in 30 countries that Path of Light will visit, always after the Teresian message of concord that unites people of different cultures, ages and sensibilities.
The Order invites everybody to participate in this experience in their countries, in the acts and routes that have been organized. And, also, to join this path wherever you live, through this website and our social networks: facebook.com/STJ500, @ STJ500.
I am sure that Path of Light will be a path of hope, that will recover in us the healthy pride of being human beings, to love and be loved.
It is time to walk!
