The Pentecost Paris-Chartres Pilgrimage 2010

PENTECOST commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit, often considered the birthday of the Church. Each year, this great feast of the Church is marked by the pilgrimage from the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris on the Île de la Cité (above) to Notre-Dame de Chartres in the Orléanais by pilgrims young and old devoted to the traditional form of the Latin rite. The pilgrimage, often a feast of flags and banners, takes three days beginning on the Saturday of Pentecost weekend, continuing through the great feast itself, and arriving in Chartres on Pentecost Monday (which is still a public holiday in France). This year, Cardinal Vingt-Trois, the Archbishop of Paris, graciously led Benediction on the second day of the pilgrimage, and met with and blessed individual pilgrims.

Here are a few photographs Notre-Dame de Chrétienté, Stuart Chessman, and from Joseph Shaw.

It never fails to amuse me when I see French traditional monarchists carrying the tricolour with the Sacred Heart. Some conceptual mix-up!

Heart warming, heart stirring and a great hope for the future.
So many young people who, very obviously, love the Tridentine Rite and abhor the Novus Ordo.
When will the Bishops of England and Wales wake up to the Truth?
