Castilla y León (and, indeed, all of Spain) is divided into provinces. Here, we are leaving the Province of Burgos and entering the Province of Palencia. Why they felt the need to tell us three times, I’m not certain.

Date: 15 April 2016
Place: Border between the Provinces of Burgos and... (more at http://www.thomryng.com/camino/camino-photo-of-the-day-thrice-welcome-to-palencia/)

Just past San Nicolás de Puente Fitero is the Río Pisuerga, which forms the border between the provinces of Burgos and Palencia. This bridge contains construction work from the 12th, 16th, 17th, and 20th centuries. It’s a highway bridge, so we leave the muddy path to walk on asphalt among...

We are approaching the Ermita de San Nicolás de Puente Fitero. This little 12th-century church once belonged to the Knights of the Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem (a.k.a. the Knights of Malta). For awhile, it was a parish church for the nearby village of Itero del Castillo.... (more at http://www.thomryng.com/camino/camino-photo-of-the-day-san-nicolas-de-puente-fitero/)

Whither is thy Beloved gone, O thou most beautiful among women? Whither is thy Beloved turned aside, and we will seek Him with thee?
We begin with the first antiphon of Lauds for today’s feast of The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Monastic Diurnal.

This was our afternoon. We descended from Alto de Mostalares into the wet and muddy plains. Then we trudged through mud. And then it rained some more. Huzzah!

Tuesday was wacky. It included being made redundant and spending a lovely evening changing passwords.
Yesterday, on the other hand, has been a good day. Served Mass, went on a 5k hike with my beautiful bride, ran some errands, had lunch with my smart and funny daughter Raine, filed for... (more at http://www.thomryng.com/amateurmonk/a-bit-of-a-personal-update/)

Today is celebrated in the western Church as the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Exaltatio Sanctæ Crucis). In the eastern Church, it is known as “the Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-creating Cross”.
The feast commemorates a number of events: the finding of... (more at http://www.thomryng.com/amateurmonk/exaltation-of-the-holy-cross-2017/)

This is a heck of a view in better weather. What’s not so great is the concrete path down. It’s pretty steep, and in damp conditions seems particularly treacherous. The bikes just fly down, and everybody else takes tiny, tiny steps as slowly as they can. It’s no fun.

In Praise of Altar Servers

Last Thursday, we celebrated a funeral in our parish of Holy Rosary. Nothing unusual in that. The one constant of life is the inevitability of death.
This particular funeral was that of a priest, Rev. Dominic Hahn. He was born in 1937, was baptized and grew up in our parish, graduated from our... (more at http://www.thomryng.com/amateurmonk/in-praise-of-altar-servers/)

Well, actually the edge of the Alto de Mostalares, complete with the sign warning of an 18-degree downslope. We’re still up in the clouds, here, so you can only see the barest hint of the world beyond. Unlike the climb up or the road across, the climb down is paved in concrete. This makes...

Once you make it to the top of the Alto de Mostalares, there’s a lovely sheltered area where you can rest. I remember on my first Camino it was really warm the day I made this climb, and I spent a long, long time rehydrating here. Having made the climb on a cool, cloudy day was much...

We climbed the Alto de Mostalares with a passel of Evergreen students that we had been walking with on and off for several days: Brian, Tracy, Cooper, and Michelle. Brian and I climbed much of this side by side, discussing poetry and philosophy, both of which seemed to be demanded by the terrain...

This was taken from about halfway up the Colina de Mostalares. Click through to see the full size. That little red dot on the right is Francine. The hill just left of center is Castrojeriz. Needless to say, the photograph doesn’t do the remotest justice to the scene.

As I mentioned yesterday, the Meseta sometimes has these wrinkles, sudden steep ridges that run for sometimes dozens of kilometers. Well, this is the bottom of one of them, the Colina de Mostalares. It’s a twelve-degree climb up, and then an eighteen-degree climb down. Here’s... (more at http://www.thomryng.com/camino/camino-photo-of-the-day-the-meseta-has-steep-ridges/)
