St James Day

"Let us today hail the bright star which once made Compostella so resplendent with its rays that the obscure town became, like Jerusalem and Rome, a centre of attraction to the piety of the whole world. As long as the Christian empire lasted, the sepulchre of St James the Great rivalled in glory that of St Peter himself." (Dom Prosper Guerenger)
