SSPX Organizes Ecumenical Pilgrimage to Pray for Persecuted Christians Throughout the World
(Fulda) On Saturday and Sunday, the 7th and 8th of September, the 10th National Pilgrimage of the German District of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X will take place. The Pilgrimage is traditionally carried to Fulda to celebrate the Traditional Rite of the Mass for the consecration of Germany to commemorate the Virgin Mary, which was completed in 1954 by the German bishops.
The theme of the pilgrimage in 2013, is the persecution of Christians. They prayed for their loyalty to the faith in difficult times and the persecuted Christians in the world. More than 100,000 Christians are killed for their faith each year.
The pilgrimage of the German national pilgrimage will begin on Saturday afternoon in front of the Stadtschloss City Palace with a Marian procession through the city. The two-day prayer meeting will again be held in the ballroom of the Old Orangery at Castle Garden, which belongs to the Maritim Hotel. On Saturday evening at 18:30 a solemn High Mass will be celebrated in the Traditional Rite. At night, the Catholic youth movement will keep a prayer vigil before the altar.
On Sunday, at 8 o' clock, a presentation by Norbert Clasen about persecution of Christians will take place: For Islamic Tolerance in Past and Present. At 9:30 a solemn High Mass will follow. The celebrant is the new German District Superior Father Firmin Udressy. The national pilgrimage will be concluded with the prayer of Consecration to Mar in which the Mother of God is beseeched to return Germany again to the Mother of God and Virgin Mary.
The National Pilgrimage is open to all Christians who are willing to support the concern. It is expected to have around 1000 participants from all over Germany.
