- About This Issue
We are pleased to offer these essays on the theme of pilgrimage and migration. U.S. Catholics have long been noted for being “on the move,” migrating from the Old World to the New, from the East to West, from rural to urban America, and from the urban core to the suburbs, among other transitions. These essays highlight their physical and spiritual journeys.
