Just as the soon-to-be-sainted Franciscan priest walked hundreds of miles to share the Gospel, so many seminarians and novices traveled great distances to the canonization Mass of Junípero Serra at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington Sept. 23.

"It is such an overwhelming blessing, a great privilege to be there today," said Sister Peter Catherine, a Dominican Sister of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.
