The spirituality of failure: even though the Camino is a pilgrimage, people often turn it into a ‘trophy’ experience and boast about their success, avoiding any mention of failure which is much more commonplace and spiritually challenging. This book is about a botched Camino walk (The Camino Ignaciano in Spain) through injury that ironically illustrates key aspects of Ignatian Spirituality. Ignatius himself was a ‘wounded’ soldier and limped his way across Spain as he managed to turn apparent failure into a great conversion to Christ. Ignatius’ injury revealed that God had a better plan for him and letting go of control paradoxically allowed God in.
