Pilgrimage and the Oscars

Amid the announcements of the Oscar nominees this morning, I must say that "Philomena" had the most feel of a pilgrimage, among the "announced" nominees (though others NOT nominated also have the feel of pilgrimage). The pursuit of the mother who is looking for her child taken away from her while she was (almost) held "hostage" at a nunnery in Ireland had the feel of pilgrimage all over it.  As Philomena pursued the whereabouts of her son, the son did the same. The satisfaction (spoiler alert) is at the end, when Philomena finds the cemetery site of her now-deceased child...right at the nunnery.

See this film!

Buen camino!
