This year has passed like month!

This year has passed like 1 month and believe me I would never have thought that I would go this route again one day. And yet there are places where if you go once you go back all your life. A bit of training and a good pilgrimage bike made me decide to ride from New York. 122 miles or 200 km, 3 days, and we are there. Wake up at 3-4 am, breakfast together, cleaning, prayer, checking the bikes and we're on our way. A pilgrimage is not only about driving, checking your physical abilities, endurance related to the weather or the terrain. They are people who can make the effort and give their best in this comfortable world. In a world where consumption and satisfying one's own needs dominate, there are people who renounce comfort and go to do something for someone or for someone else. Because you are a pilgrim with intentions.

"God, I can not do it, I will not ..."

You know what on Sunday I came back from the lV Bicycle Pilgrimage to the American Czestochowa. It was a quick and spontaneous decision taken on a Friday night. Only 80 miles was waiting for me (the whole route was 350 miles). On Saturday, the temperature indicated 108 F, at some point I began to wonder: Is the bigger heat pouring from the sky or beating from hot sticky asphalt?

Conditions were very difficult. I was a miracle. I have never experienced such fatigue and physical exhaustion before, and believe me I have been in many different places and situations. My own psyche killed me, I'm afraid that I'm the last one and I can not do it, the equipment I was going to and the temperature. In a word, I massacred myself physically and completely ... But my effort was not wasted. I met there a group of ANGELS who, without looking at anything, helped me reach my goal. You know what, there were TRUE PEOPLE who did not know me before, and they pulled out their hearts. It was as hot to me as it was to me, just as hard, yet they could give my hand or embrace my arm and push me up the hill. This is an amazing feeling when you say, "God, I can not do it, I will not ..." and at the moment someone puts a hand on your shoulders and pushes forward ...
