Today is the feast of St James the Great, the patron saint of Spain, and with his great shrine church at Santiago de Compostella.
St James the Moor Slayer
Santiago de Compostella
The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela
He arrived his on crutches there yesterday and sent the following message to his friends:
" I arrived in Santiago this afternoon, have paid my respects to the Apostle, said my prayers and am now eating Lemon and Orujo Sorbet and having a beer (Estrella de Galicia, of course) in the cafeteria of the Hotel Reyes Catholicos."
A great achievement on his part. Happy feast day to him and all other pilgrims to St James
