“To go on pilgrimage is not simply to visit a place to admire its treasures of nature, art or history. To go on pilgrimage really means to step out of ourselves in order to encounter God where he has revealed himself, where his grace has shone with particular splendor and produced rich fruits of conversion and holiness among those who believe.
Above all, Christians go on pilgrimage to the Holy Land, to the places associated with the Lord’s passion, death and resurrection. They go to Rome, the city of the martyrdom of Peter and Paul, and also to Compostela, which, associated with the memory of Saint James, has welcomed pilgrims from throughout the world who desire to strengthen their spirit with the Apostle’s witness of faith and love.” Pope Benedict XVI

“Ir en peregrinación no es simplemente visitar un lugar para admirar sus tesoros de la naturaleza, el arte o la historia. Ir a peregrinar significa realmente salir de nosotros mismos para encontrarnos con Dios donde él mismo se ha revelado, donde su gracia ha brillado con particular esplendor y producido ricos frutos de conversión y santidad entre los creyentes. Sobre todo, los cristianos van en peregrinación a Tierra Santa, a los lugares asociados con la pasión, muerte y resurrección del Señor. Van a Roma, la ciudad del martirio de Pedro y Pablo, y también a Compostela, que, asociada a la memoria de Santiago, ha acogido a peregrinos de todo el mundo que desean fortalecer su espíritu con el testimonio del Apóstol de fe y amor.” Papa Benedict XVI
