We Are All Pilgrims: A Pilgrimage Gift
This pendant of the scallop shell was worn by pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The shell is both a symbol of baptism (as used by St. John the Baptist) and as a symbol of pilgrimage since thirsty pilgrims used the shell to draw to water to drink as they made their way to the shrine.
Even if you or a loved one are not going on a physical pilgrimage any time soon, this is still a poignant gift, reminding us that we are all pilgrims, and we all must stop to drink the water of life of the Living God. Because of its small size and stylish design, this pilgrimage pendant is extremely popular with young people. Give it as a confirmation gift or an end of the year gift.
