St. Teresa’s walking stick: By Land By Sea By Air

St Mark’s gospel account tells us that Jesus sent out the Twelve and instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff – no bread, no haversack, no coppers for their purses. They were to wear sandals, but he added, “Do not take a spare tunic.” It was in this spirit that Brother Noel O’Connor set out on Friday to collect St. Teresa’s walking stick (staff). Sandals on his feet, no spare tunic, no haversack, but with a day return ticket for Spain.
