The following pages offer helpful resources should you wish to make a pilgrimage to a Marian shrine. In addition, here are a few quick tips:
Pack comfortable shoes.
Pack lightly — you may have to walk a good deal.
Go with an open mind and a flexible attitude — pilgrimages are never quite what you expect them to be.
Consider traveling with a local church group or with an organization responsible for organizing pilgrimages.
You are likely to get the best price, and have a better experience when you travel with experts than if you strike out on your own.
