We, the Australian Friends of the Camino, have had four of our members contribute to the new Spiritual Companion for Pilgrims. The short reflections, accompanied by lovely photographs and relevant short quotations, are interesting and easy to read. Aussie contributors are Michelle Courtney (Vic), Alan Pearce (NSW), Sam Pinkerton (Qld), and Janet Leitch (SA). An expanded version of Sam Pinkerton’s contribution to the book is included in the Camino Chronicle Issue 17 (June 2016).
The Spiritual Companion is a compilation of 31 reflections from pilgrims in all of the countries where there are English speaking Camino Associations. In addition to the reflections, a general introduction to the pilgrimage to Santiago is included. This book, published by Redemptorist Publications and compiled by John Rafferty, is an attractive and useful book of short reflections written by, and for, pilgrims. Copies are available for sale for $10.
