Bishop Barron on “The Way of a Pilgrim”

Bishop Robert Barron

December 29, 2016


The Way of a Pilgrim, whose author is unknown to us, concerns a man from mid-nineteenth century Russia who found himself deeply puzzled by St. Paul’s comment in first Thessalonians that we should “pray unceasingly.” How, he wondered, amidst all of the demands of life, is this even possible? With the Jesus Prayer on his lips, he seeks the answer on a pilgrimage. What he finds is a lesson for us all.
