POPE Francis has released his top 10 tips for achieving happiness. 1st – Live and let live  2nd – Be giving of yourself to other people.  If you withdraw into yourself you become like stagnant water which becomes putrid.  3rd – Proceed calmly in life
4th – A healthy sense of leisure. Consumerism has brought anxiety, causing us to loose a healthy culture of leisure.
5th – Sunday is for family.   6th – We need to be creative with young people. We need to give them opportunities.
7th – Environmental degradation is one of the biggest challenges we face. We must ask the question, is humanity committing suicide with this indiscriminate use of nature?  8th – Needing to talk badly about other people indicates a low self esteem.
9th – We can inspire other people not by talk but through personal witness 10th – We are living in a time of many wars and the call for peace must be shouted. Peace isn’t quiet. It’s always pro-active.

Pilgrimage has been defined as “a meaningful journey to a place of spiritual significance” and the practice is almost as old as recorded history. In Ireland the pilgrim journey has strong historic resonance with early Christian scholars coming to Clonmacnoise; medieval penitents journeying to Lough Derg, Holycross and Glendalough, while others sought heightened spirituality by visiting Skellig Michael or climbing Croagh Patrick.
