Religious pilgrimages in New Zealand

August 4th, 2015 by admin

Religion makes many people go easily through rough times in their life. Religion helped me to be the person who I am. Every religion, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and others teach us to love the people around us, to help them and that there is an end to everything, except God's mercy. When you realize you will die one day, and everything material you were fighting for your whole life won't help you anymore, you also realize you have to fight for something that is worth the effort.

I have visited many places in this world, seen many people of different nationalities, religions and colors and I can tell you that there are not that much places like New Zealand. Put the sea and incredible nature beside, the people are those who make this country amazing. There are so many religions coexisting together on this small island. And there are barely any fights like in other places where different cultures, religions and races meet. It has a long religious history, and some places everyone should visit, regardless of their religion. The Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell in Auckland is an Anglican church of modern design. It looks quite impressive from the outside, and incredible from the inside. I will not tell you anything more, so go there, visit it and find it out by yourself.

There is one big pilgrimage in New Zealand. It is called "Road Retreat" and is more of a pilgrimage-retreat. It alternates between visiting places of historic interest to the Catholic Church and shrines of the same interest. It takes place one year in the North Island and the next year in the South. I had the opportunity to be a part of this pilgrimage-retreat in 2012. Back then it began on November 17th, keep in mind that it is almost summer then on the southern hemisphere, and it started from Kerikeri. We all visited Bishop Pompallier’s burial place in Motuti and the oldest church in New Zealand, Christ Church which is and Anglican church. The tour guide was the lovely Joy Cowley. She really has a deep knowledge of the history of the Church and the Catholic history of New Zealand. We visited so many places, that I won't mention any more, because I can't mention them all, and they are all equally important.

You have to fight for a better world, for good and you have to make as much people as possible see the beauty of God. He will forgive you everything. Once a teen, after I held a long speech about the temptations of the internet, came to me and asked me will God forgive him because he was once a part of a live sex chat. I told him that if he is sorry for that and tries to never do that again, God will forgive him.

The Road Retreat ended in the historic Mount St. cemetery where so many of New Zealand's Catholic forebears are buried and the Home of Compassion. It was really interesting and good to find out more about New Zealand and hear what other people, who were taking this amazing trip with me, have to say about the whole situation in the world today, about Vatican, the pope and many other things. It was really amazing and I recommend everyone to go and become a part of this pilgrimage.

The Cross of Christ will never
be emptied of its power.
