Accompanied by his 13-year-old son, Jesús Muñoz is traveling 500 kilometers (310 miles) on horseback to fulfill a promise made to St. Sebastian 20 years ago, when he began his university studies.
As a young man Jesús Muñoz traveled from his Argentina hometown of Las Ovejas to study in Neuquén, 500 kilometers to the south, and entrusted his professional future to the intercession of St. Sebastian, the patron saint of Las Ovejas.
That young student asked the saint to accompany him during his career, and to fulfill a promise, this weekend he set off on horseback with his 13-year-old son Benjamin. Together they are traveling the 500 kilometers from Neuquén to Las Ovejas.
The journey of father and son began on Saturday night, Jan. 7, and when they left the Neuquén cathedral they received the blessing of Bishop Fernando Croxatto.
