Day 7: Santiago to Coimbra to Fatima
by Steve Ray on November 3, 2017
Left Santiago de Compostela after a great breakfast and headed to Bon Jesus. This is one of the most remarkable churches that anyone has ever seen with an altar piece of life-size figures at the crucifixion of Jesus and gardens and patios that go down the side of the mountain with beautiful trees and flowers and manicured gardens.
We then drove to Coimbra Portugal where we had 2 1/2 hours free to explore the city, eat lunch, do some shopping and have a lot of fun together. The weather has cooperated nicely. After lunch we went to the Carmelite convent where Sister Lucia was a Carmelite nun for 57 years after her apparitions in Fatima. You can hear the homily here.
We arrived in Fatima after dark and everybody had dinner. We had a lot of fun on the buses today where I pretended I was on “Catholic Answers Live” and did Q & A from people on the buses. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.
