I have many critiques of Facebook, but one of my favorite features is the "Memories" tab. Ten years ago, I was going through a very difficult time. I actually enjoy reading my posts from those days, because I can see in retrospect how God was present throughout.
Ten years ago today, I was visiting Wisconsin. My siblings and I decided to take a pilgrimage to Holy Hill, a 24-mile hike from our parents' house.
We arrived very sore... and exactly five minutes after the basilica closed for the day!
