«The Way of St. James offers the Christian pilgrim a deep immersion into the mysteries, challenges, demands and joys of discipleship. On two occasions I have had the opportunity to walk long sections of this ancient pilgrim way leading to the Tomb of Santiago de Compostela. I hope and pray that this project will help many others to discover its possibilities as a powerful instrument for the New Evangelization.»

«This project would be a tool for the New Evangelization. Our life in Christ is a pilgrimage, a journey of faith. It involves faith and sacrifice. It is done in community with others in Christ. Through such a documentary, the seeds of faith might be replanted in Europe, and be strengthened in America and other places. It would also be a fountain of graces for those taking part in the Way of Saint James. Be assured of my interest and prayers.»

«The documentary, FOOTPRINTS, is a beautiful testimony to the effort and spirit that encourages the pilgrims who travel the Way of St. James. Its images move us and offer us the opportunity to reflect on the true pilgrim spirituality that can lead us to an encounter with the Risen Lord.»

«My pastoral experience as a priest and bishop has shown me the tremendous potential of a pilgrimage, especially when undertaken with a spirit of brotherhood and sacrifice. There is as big a difference between a religious tourist and a pilgrim, as there is between a mere spectator and someone who is actively contemplating on the experience. I congratulate the authors of this documentary because they have been able to transmit this beautifully.»

«The experience of the Way of Saint James is one of profound faith, hope and an opportunity for conversion. People come back from this experience with an indelible imprint that decisively marks their lives. This documentary offers a genuine view of the fundamental aspects of this experience and provides exceptional material for the new evangelization.»

Ricardo Blázquez

«The Way of Saint James is a parable of life: we come from God and in this journey of life we search for God, with other pilgrims, until we reach the ‘Portico of Glory.’»
