Mexican Pilgrimage, Migration, and Discovery of the Sacred


This article explores an analogical relationship between Mexican pilgrimage and migration to the United States.

Pilgrims involved in migration undertake both objectives to reconcile differences and achieve an understanding of the sacred.
