Modern Catholic Pilgrim: Will Peterson


“When I stepped into the streets of Rome the energy was incredible- it was like electricity was coming out of my fingertips. It immediately struck me: this occurred on pilgrimage.”

Will Peterson’s first real recognition of the Holy Spirit came while on pilgrimage, and the experience has inspired him to create a movement to reintroduce people to this innate spiritual practice. In this episode Will tells his story and why Biblical hospitality is the one Christian characteristic that he is dedicating his life to renewing.

“Man instinctually is a wanderer and a wayfarer, and it is second nature for him to go on pilgrimage in search of a privileged and holy place, a center and source of indefectible light.” – Thomas Merton
