Christians opting for Spain’s holy sites, instead

Kota Kinabalu: Except during the Covid-19 pandemic travel lockdown period, Christian and Catholic pilgrims make it a point to visit religious sites in Israel associated with Jesus Christ.

However, with the ongoing war in Gaza, now in the seventh month, many scheduled tours to Jerusalem were cancelled. Fr. Cosmas Lee, the rector of St Simon Church, here, was supposed to have led a delegation to the Holy Land sites last year.

Currently, Fr. Cosmas Lee’s assistant, Fr Rhobby Aaron Mojolou, is leading a group in Spain on the 800km plus Camino de Santiago pilgrimage walk or “Pilgrimage of Compostela” (The Way of Apostle St James) leading to his burial shrine in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in the Spanish province of Galicia.

The 30 days plus walk started in early April and is scheduled to end in early May.
