Bishop Participates in Paris-Chartres Pilgrimage

Signs and wonders still happen. Chartres Bishop Philippe Christory, 64, has participated in the Roman Rite Paris-Chartres pilgrimage organised by …
P. O'B
"
The Chartres-Paris pilgrimage of Pius X had to be halted because of the bad weather." Is that the SSPX? And what happened to Michael Matt's call to "Unite the Clans" if bad weather kept the best-known representatives of Traditional Catholicism away?

Michael Matt was on the way from Paris to Chartres (FSSP) that held on and not the other side that gave up (FSSPX).

@Sally Dorman , @P. O'B No, actually, it's quite different than you might think. The one pilgrimage which FSSP/Matt participated in began earlier in the week and ended on Pentecost just as weather turned.
The SSPX pilgrimage normally sets out on Pentecost weekend, and could not leave because of the weather conditions already underway.

It's one thing to already be out in the fields and needing to get back to civilization - do or die. It's another thing altogether to lead throngs of people -- young children and old adults included -- out into those conditions where it would not even be possible to set up camps.

I'm sure that knowing the facts you will appreciate the difference now. God bless.

P.S. and actually.....it's very metaphorical in a powerful way. SSPX refused to enter the storm and chaos brought about by Vatican II. They kept their flocks safely in the harbor of Tradition. And now Catholics lost out in the fields of chaos that followed Vatican II are trying to find their way back to safe harbor. 😇

The two routes are at the same time - just opposite direction. Also FSSP/Matt had to search a shelter. See here: Chartres heute: Die riesige Prozession zum Einzug formiert sich neben der Kathedrale. Diözesanpries…

Geweldige Bisschop. Erg jammer dat de Pius X processie, door het slechte weer, moest worden afgebroken.

Fortunately, I didn’t experience weather as foul as this.

What a powerful video of all those magnificent priests offering their magnificent Masses in that tent. The magnitude of spiritual power pouring out of that humble abode as they all offer up Christ in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is absolutely mind-boggling.
