After twenty-five years of leading pilgrim groups to Catholic shrines across Europe, tour guide K. Troy has seen it all. Crafted with wit and charm, this book gives a firsthand account of Christ’s hand at work in all the beautiful messiness of pilgrimage. The stories unfold in some of the most evocative Catholic settings: Vatican City, the Holy House of Nazareth in Loreto, the shrine of St. Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo, the Carmel of St. Therese in Lisieux, the Cathedral of Wawel in Krakow, the magnificent Abbey of Montecasino, and many other sacred places. With humor and a sense of wonder, the book also gives fascinating details from the lives of such great saints as Mother Teresa, John Paul II, Therese of Lisieux, Padre Pio, Catherine of Siena, and many others.
