Members of our MANNA community on our most recent Pilgrimage in September.
An early morning jogger, trotting in his pride across Boston Common, wakes up a sleeping homeless man with volleys of verbal abuse... Where are the bolts of lightning when you need them? Where is justice? The only leveller, as Indra Karan reminds us in this issue of The Pilgrim, is existence itself. "From the conniving old and the innocent children... Time steals everything." (James Parker, Editor)
The Pilgrim is a journal produced by members of Boston's homeless community, published by the Cathedral Church of St Paul, and dedicated to the proposition that homelessness is a state of acute pilgrimage. It features poetry, memoir, prayer, reportage, jubilation and despair. To quote one of our regular writers: “This paper is real. It don’t get realer than this.”
