Pilgrims used to travel for weeks or months by foot to reach their goal. Now they log on to the net and fly vast distances in a matter of hours to attend great religious sites or events such as the Canonisation of Mary MacKillop in Rome on October 17. Thousands of Australians are expected to attend and a website www.canonisationtravel.com has just been set up by Harvest Pilgrimages. Entry level deals feature ‘pilgrim accommodation in a central religious house or convent style lodging in rooms with private facilities’.
