Those amazing Pilgrims who just finished the 2014 Camino Salvado had the added reward of being presented with the Certificates above by the Benedictine Community. It had a genuine wax seal on it too! In Spain these certificates are known as Compostela, perhaps we should call them ‘djin djin” which means “good spirit” in the Noongar language.
For those who receive them, they will be a life long reminder about what a wonderful journey they experienced. Our sincere thanks go to the New Norcia Community for such generosity of spirit.
The spirit of pilgrimage, the spirit of disparate peoples coming together from all around the Australia – and one day from all around the planet – is a great sign to the rest of the world.
