We enter the gates
Of Clonmacnoise.
Ahead of us are
Centuries of life in the Spirit.

You have a choice, the leader says,
Go in pilgrim or go in tourist mode.
Either way is fine, but make your intention.

I walk the stones
Of the pilgrim way.
I touch the high cross
That has stood there for 1000 years.

How many people
Have walked these steps?
How many hearts have been Touched, guided,
Inspired in this place?

Let me journey with their spirits.
Let me walk in faithfulness,
In kindness,
In love.
In the pilgrim way.
