"Most pilgrims develop for this rocky island and its harsh routine an affection that really defies explanation. Again and again they return to it with a gaiety, an uplifting of the heart, a profound sense of relief, in short the very sentiments proper to homecoming after life-long exile. That which speaks to them at Lough Derg is race. In going there they are answering the call for blood."
