Day 2: Walsingham
Include a visit to England's Nazareth at Walsingham. Visit both the Anglican Shrine and Catholic Basilica of Our Lady and walk the Pilgrim's Way between them barefoot, if you dare! Don't forget to include Walsingham Abbey near the Anglican Shrine. Richeldis de Faverches was a Saxon noblewoma, she had a deep faith in God and devotion to Mary. We know too of her reputation for good works in care and generosity towards those around her. Her life of prayer and good works was rewarded by a vision in the year 1061. In this vision she was taken by Mary to be shown the house in Nazareth where Gabriel had announced the news of the birth of Jesus. Mary asked Richeldis to build an exact replica of that house in Walsingham. This is how Walsingham became known as England's Nazareth.
