time 11 Days / 9 Nights


The history of France is crisscrossed with great holy people who were influential through their total devotion to Christ.  They honored the vocation of France as the "eldest daughter of the church", a title that France has held since the conversion of Clovis, the first Christian French king. Such a name has been given to France by Saint John Paul II when he first came to France in 1980 at le Bourget. This tour leads you in the footprints of the first Christians who evangelized France during the roman period and then makes you discover the vibrant faith of the recent saints. Among the first saints to mark France is Saint Mary Magdalene (who knew Christ), saint Denis (first bishop of Paris and a martyr) saint Irenaeus, saint Blandina (martyr in Lyon at the hands of the romans). Closer to contemporary times one discovers saint John Vianney (curé d'Ars and patron saint of all priests) and saint Théophane Vénard (missionary martyred in Asia)... and so many others as well. This pilgrimage of 10 days / 9 nights from north to south on the road with the great saints of France is an extraordinary spiritual itinerary, rich and diverse. You will be able to understand the history of Christianism in France and discover exceptional places of spirituality that make France so unique.
