about this item

St. Junipero Serra’s Camino offers a sacred path for missionary disciples today, traveling the ancient way of America’s new saint through the California missions and learning to embody his evangelizing zeal. The author describes the missions founded and envisioned by Serra as places of encounter between the Spanish Franciscans and the Native peoples of California. With deep love for the Indians, Serra sought to bring them the gospel of Jesus Christ while preparing them for the coming influx of European settlers.

The book includes a biography of Saint Serra, descriptions of Native spirituality and the Franciscan missionary tradition, inspiring quotations from and about Serra, and prayers for pilgrimage. For each of the twenty-one mission shrines, this guide incorporates an historical overview, a sketch of its patron, a tour through its church, museum, and grounds, as well as Scripture, litany, and prayer for each. The book may be used as an on-site guidebook or as armchair reading offering moving descriptions of these holy sites.
