I would like to know how many marks I would get for this question. After looking at what AQA shows as a model answer, I think my teacher marks too harshly but just to make sure could someone give me a rough mark for this. Could you also tell me how i could improve thanks.

Explain 2 reasons why pilgrimages is an important action for Christians. Refer to sacred scripture (5)

One reason pilgrimage is an important action for christians is because it provides cleansing from any type of disease and cleanses a person spiritually. Lourdes in France has a miraculous spring for healing diseases and it also heals a person's soul allowing them to get a higher place in the afterlife.
Another contrasting reason pilgrimage is an important action for Christians is because it allows them to get closer to God and strengthens their bond. Iona is said to be by George Macleod 'a thin place where only tissues separates material from spiritual' which demonstrates how their are no barriers for communicating with God allowing them to freely express themselves
