Pope Francis wrote that “making a pilgrimage is one of the most eloquent expressions of faith.” A pilgrimage is a spiritual journey to a place made holy by a heavenly encounter. From May 24 through June 3, St. John’s University students Paul Espiritu, Samantha Melendez, Keyla Peyano, and Theresa Vogel had the opportunity to visit one of those very special places: Lourdes, France.
