Chartres 2008

I got these pics over at Andrew Cusacks blog. I am hoping to go to Chartres next year, unfortunately time, money and personal circumstances did not permit this year. Enjoy!



Can you imagine 10,000 pilgrims all walking together 75 miles from Paris to Chartres Cathedral? Sounds pretty awesome!

Sadly only the Anglicans would do this over here...

That's true. I was passing an Epsicopal Church in Edinburgh last year on the feast of Corpus Christi and they were outside with full show of the liturgy and a 'blessed sacrament' procession with some of the congregation spreading rose petals on the ground around the church as the vicar basically processed with the monstrance. I nearly passed out.

JP:

That would be St Michael & All Saints - my old stomping ground.


Now, when you get the gen about Chartres 2009, do let me know. I really want to go!
