What Should Be Included in an Agape Letter for the Walk to Emmaus?

The main objective of agape letters from friends and family members to pilgrims on the Walk to Emmaus is to express their love and appreciation for them. Although each letter is as distinctive and special as the writer, they all ultimately express love.

Use the letter as a chance to thank the pilgrim and to discuss important and private parts of your relationship with him or her. The benefit of comprehending the environment in which the agape letters are received as well as the general spirit and mood of the Walk to Emmaus is available to those who have already taken part.

Because this is a Christian-based experience of spiritual rejuvenation, letter writers may want to mention Christ and ask for the pilgrim’s prayers. However, by concentrating on the unique relationship they have with the pilgrim, even individuals who have not participated in a Walk or who may not hold the same beliefs can send an acceptable letter.

The agape letter should, to the extent possible, express to the pilgrim love, support, and friendship in whatever terms seem natural and sincere to the writer.
