Today, I have 2 recent pictures (taken today and yesterday) about pilgrimages from two different religions. Would you ever go on a pilgrimage for what you believe (this doesn't have to be a certain religion now, just some belief), what do you think about people that do this? Are they dumb or just devoted? A good example or something to shake your head at? Discuss, but keep t clean, no harassing of other religions, please!

About 5,000 pilgrims made their way to the monastery today to pay tribute to one of the most venerated saints of the Orthodox Church.
