“The Pilgrimage has a special place in the Holy Year, because it represents the journey each of us makes in this life.” Pope Francis

The Catholic students and other students interested in Christians faith were duly prepared on the meaning, purpose and fruit of the pilgrimage which took place on 27th February 2016.

The 40 participants together with Sisters and staff were accompanied by the timely reflections of  Fr. Hangly Suon  along the way from the Pastoral Center in Phnom Penh Thmey to reach St. Joseph Parish, Phnom Penh and Areyksat shrine, the destination point.

Meditating that our life is a pilgrimage toward God and our eternal home with Him, has helped everyone to interiorize the event. The group lived the experience with recollection and the reception of the sacrament of Reconciliation was for many a deep experience of God’s Mercy. Many students felt moved at the awareness of the overwhelming mercy of God that renewed their life.

The answer that a Buddhist girl gave Sister on the deepest experience of the day was: “Oh Sister, I felt so strongly the presence of God!” while for another one it was arriving at the last stop of the Pilgrimage - a small shrine dedicated to Our Lady Queen of Peace on the Mekong River: “The joy of meeting Mary!”
May this blessed experience mark indelibly everyone’s heart and help them after having experienced mercy, become “Merciful like the Father”.
