Camino day 2 – Paris

Today’s photos can be viewed here. Today’s prayer intention: our parish priests Fr Mark, Fr Roy, and Fr Augusto and the priests of our diocese.


We flew into France and took a train to Paris where we booked a small room in a hostel. Very appropriate feel for the beginning of this Camino journey.

The cheapest place in Paris. But clean and comfortable.

We slept hard and slept in to get over the jet leg. The second day we had to see a couple of sites in Paris. It was a good transition day as we walked about 10 miles to Notre Dame, then to the Eiffel Tower, and then back to the hostel.

Nothing really made our heart leap except this moment when we found a small church with an adoration chapel… And Jesus is present in the Tabernacle in the Eucharist!

St John Paul II chapel

Lisa and I talked about how Paris is nice. These major attractions were nice to visit. But nothing really moved our hearts today like this moment alone in a chapel with the Lord.

Tomorrow we head to Lisieux to visit the home and convent of St Therese of Lisieux.

Until tomorrow… Buen Camino!!
