The Pilgrim of Jerusalem
With the sole intention of honoring God, Jean Lescuyer, a successful Christian businessman, undertook a pilgrimage from Lourdes to Jerusalem with only $40 in his pocket. For eight months he had to learn to survive by begging for his food and trusting those he met: drug addicts in France and Italy, illegal Albanian immigrants in Greece, and "second-class" citizens who were more accepting of him than some men of faith. He was spared nothing. Full of trials and tribulations, as well as remarkable encounters—the Pope in Rome, monks on Mount Athos, and Said Akl, the famous Lebanese poet—his walk rapidly turned into a quest for spiritual enlightenment.
In Le Pèlerin de Jerusalem, Jean Lescuyer tells his incredible real-life experience of enlightenment and his discovery of the real meaning of charity, piety, and compassion.
