Catholic Passport

What is Catholic Passport?



Do Not Be Afraid of a Solo Pilgrimage!



Catholic Passport is a place for you to dream, explore, follow, and plan your Catholic pilgrimage.  Although many Catholic pilgrims default to traveling with a large group under the guidance of a professional pilgrimage company, some people are more attracted to solo travel at a more contemplative pace. It is such a gift to learn more about the Saints, pilgrimage sites, and prayers that enrich our Catholic faith.

A pilgrimage evokes the believer’s personal journey in the footsteps of the Redeemer: it is an exercise of practical asceticism, of repentance for human weaknesses, of constant vigilance over one’s own frailty, of interior preparation for a change of heart. Through vigils, fasting and prayer, the pilgrim progresses along the path of Christian perfection, striving to attain, with the support of God’s grace, “the state of the perfect man, to the measure of the full maturity of Christ” (Eph 4:13).
— John Paul II, Jubilee Year 2000
