‘Students seek deeper meanings on religious quests’

USA Today

March 16th, 2013 by Holy Cross in the News

In a recent article in USA Today, Thomas Landy, director of the McFarland Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture at the College of the Holy Cross, commented on the importance of spiritual journeys, especially among students.

Landy, who has led a pilgrimage from Northern Spain to Rome in order to trace the steps of St. Ignatius for ten years, stressed that participants of all faiths and belief systems are welcome. “Pilgrimages are about being on a path of seeking or finding something,” he said.

Landy also emphasized the importance of personal spiritual growth. “It’s less like tourism, and it’s about a spiritual quest,” he said.  “Every time, people take it somewhat differently, and it’s really amazing to see what they do with it and what it means for them,” he continued.
