The Path at St Martin’s in-the-Veld is the installation of the Santa Rosa Labyrinth in celebration of the centenary of this church. Labyrinths have their origins in antiquity, probably ritualistic, possibly little different from our own meditative journey, and are well recorded in Greek mythology. A labyrinth usually has a single path leading to a destination; the design relates to wholeness with the combined imagery of spirals and circles in a meandering but purposeful path. The twists and turns create the charm and symbolism of the labyrinth – but there is only one path, one way in and one way out.
The labyrinth has no tricks, no decisions … one surrenders to the path, the spiritual path – the only decision is to choose God. We may face different directions, but we are all on the same path.
