Holy water for the hundreds of motorhomes parked on the Santuario del Saliente's esplanade

Even though the narrow road connecting Albox and El Roel is often crowded with hikers or pilgrims who walk along its banks, it was a stunning view this weekend. This itinerary is made up of only twenty kilometers. A long line motorhomes, all white, slowly climbed them.

All of these vehicles took part in the II Concentration of Trucks, Classics, and Motorhomes, which was held in Albojense over the weekend. The drivers came from Almeria, Cuevas del Almanzora, Campohermoso, Murcia, Cartagena, Lorca, Santo Angel, Molina de Segura, Valladolid, Aguilar de Campoo and Leon. This meeting was requested by the Saliente Diocesan Sanctuary by the Murcia Region MotorhomeAssociation, which was established in 2006.

The Rector received them in the Sanctuary's main chapel, right next to the holy image of Our Lady Of the Forsaken del Saliente Coronada (‘La Pequenica’), and spoke about the Christian faith of motorhome tourism. He said to them, 'With your motorhomes, you live the values family and good friends. Your words remind us that home isn't an accumulation of stuff, but people we love.

The motorhomes were blessed with holy water later, at the Roel esplanade. They proudly displayed the certificates that acknowledged their participation in the blessing ceremony.

The carving of "La Pequenica" was a final reminder of the pilgrimage. Everything is carried by the pilgrim. These faithful can't deny that they haven't done it, even if it was on a motor vehicle.
