A pilgrim witness

George stopped yesterday for an hour or so. He was trying to make his pilgrimage without any money, relying on the generosity of people he encountered along the way. His intention was a kind of practical witness against the way modern society had become so dependent on money. He had in fact succeded all the way from Le Puy-en-Velay, until he arrived in Athez where a trip to a cash machine proved necessary. He had lost his cap and and felt that under the searing heat of the sun he had to buy a new one. Needless to say, we made him sandwiches to take on his way!
