Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_07 : Praying Steps

Tradition expects the faithful to climb the steps on their knees, saying a prayer at each step. This reminded me of a similar tradition at St. Joseph's Oratory, in Montreal. It's hard on the knees so the old, the sick and the infirm are exempt.

Like a lot of things, sometimes the hardship makes the event more worthwhile. Maybe some people could wear kneepads?

I have heard that one can crawl the entire Santiago Trail, if one is of a mind.
