This is the first in a series on Alexander’s pilgrimage on El Camino de Santiago Compostela. His hopes for prayer seemed initially squashed by the pain he endured in the first few days.
Alexander hails from San Diego, CA, and is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. While earning a BA in Theology and a BS in Physics from Loyola Marymount University he found himself falling in love with spirituality and social justice. He hopes that his future in ministry will allow for the language of faith to benefit those pushed to the margins. To the chagrin of roommates, coworkers, and countless others, he loves Christmas music and Harry Potter way too much.
