In the end, we discover that the extraordinary is always found in the ordinary and simple ways of everyday people.

A beautifully inspirational tale that reminds us that the extraordinary happens everyday. "Magic" has one source, and it is how people choose to manifest and acknowledge it that shows its true power. The Road to San Tiago is the path of the "common people" or everyman: its wisdom is accessible to all who are open to receive it.

"Still, being fragile creatures, humans always try to hide from themselves the certainty that they will die. They do not see that it is death itself that motivates them to do the best things in their lives. They are afraid to step into the dark, afraid of the unknown, and their way of conquering that fear is to ignore the fact that their days are numbered. They do not see that with an awareness of death, they would be able to be even more daring, to go much further in their daily conquests, because they would have nothing to lose--- for death is inevitable." -- Petrus to Paulo
