Hajj Like No Other

2020 has been a challenging year for religious observance.

The Hajj starts today – and from this account, the pilgrimage will be very different from usual. Of course, many pilgrims who’d hoped to be making the trip won’t be, at least not this year. For the few who can, Zamzam water in plastic bottles and pre-packaged Mina stones have a lot in common with communion elements in individual snack-packs, it seems to me, including the pain, and the gratitude.

May you all make a good Hajj.
