Chartres 2009
[Image: ndc09_151.jpg]
Thanks to NLM, ( http://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/200...-2009.html ) I was just reminded of another great event I missed over the weekend: the annual pilgrimage from Paris to Chartres. The pilgrimage takes place each year, starting on from the vigil of Pentecost at 6am on Saturday outside the Cathedral Church of Notre Dame in Paris and finishing on Monday with Mass in Chartres Cathedral. The three day walk covers 75 miles so it is quite a gruelling pace. The walkers are divided into "chapters" each with one or more priests to hear confessions and give spiritual direction en route.



This pilgrimage originated in the 12th century, with interruptions for the various wars our European brethren seem to find themselves in from time to time.


I spotted a few familiar habits and faces; the Institute of Christ the King:

One or two I recognise from the secular clergy:

The Franciscans of the Immaculate were there:

I don't like to be away from the parish for the feast of Pentecost but perhaps one year I may be able to get a train over to join in with the final Mass at Chartres and meet up with the hardy walkers. Congratulations to all those who completed the Pilgrimage.

The images are the official ones from the website of Notre Dame de Chretiénté where there are many more.
Anyone got some pics of the real pilgrimage?  :laughing
So can someone please explain to me why Institute priests wear those blue mozzettas?  Is it now an official part of their habit?  Traditionally, it was either a sign of some sort of jurisdiction or a part of a particular order's habit.

Nevermind.  I answered my own question:

Scroll down to "Why do Institute priests wear their own choir dress?"
I hope this isn't a silly question, but how do you get to wear a white biretta?  In that photo set, there is a deacon (I think he is a deacon because he is wearing a dalmatic??) wearing a white biretta.  It just surprised me, I have never seen that before. 
Lots of photographs from the SSPX pilgrimage are (slowly) being posted at the link below:

I think the SSPX makes the pilgrimage in the opposite direction from the original one.  They start at Chartres and end in Paris. The group starting in Paris  crosses paths with the SSPX along the way.

I know Norbertines wear white birettas.  There may be some other orders who do, as well.

I would have just gone with "because it's awesome".
