100 Kilometers: Pentecost Pilgrimage of Tradition -- Paris -- Chartres or Chartres Paris

(Paris) From 23 to the 25th of May, 2015 the great  International pilgrimage  for  tradition of Paris and Chartres will take place. Also, this year there will be, as there has been since 1989, two pilgrimages, on each of which thousands of people will participate.
The 33rd Pentecost Pilgrimage of Ecclesia Dei communities, with the official name Pèlerinage de chrétienté (Pilgrimage of Christendom),  will march about 100 kilometers from Paris to Chartres. The organizer  is the Association of Our Lady of Christendom . The motto of this year's Pentecost pilgrimage is "Jesus Christ, Savior of the world". The pilgrimage begins on Saturday, 23 May at 7:00 clock with the Holy Mass in the traditional Rite in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The pilgrimage route  leaves from Paris by the Ile de France to Chartres, where in the cathedral in the afternoon of Whit Monday, a Pontifical Mass will be celebrated in the traditional Rite.
The 27th Pentecost Pilgrimage of the SSPX , with the official name Pèlerinage de tradition (Pilgrimage of Tradition), will follow the reverse way from Chartres to Paris. The organizers is the Association Pèlegrinage de Tradition . The Pentecost Pilgrimage 2015 will be held under the motto "God's Angels our Protectors."  The pilgrimage begins on Saturday, 23 May at 7:45 clock with the Holy Mass in the traditional rite in Chartres next to the cathedral. Pilgrims will arrive in Paris, drawing near the Eiffel Tower to the Invalides, where a Pontifical High Mass in the Immemorial Rite will be celebrated at Place Vauban in the afternoon of Whit Monday.
Pilgrims will spend two nights each in large tent cities that are built along the pilgrimage route. The organization by numerous volunteers is outstanding. On the significance of Pentecost pilgrimage See also the report The Camp of The Saints - see Today the Church of Tomorrow (in German) .

The international pilgrimage on foot for tradition first took place in 1983 and has been held regularly over the years as the world's largest, meeting of tradition. Also the 1988/1989 break which took place breakage did not change this. The  episcopal ordinations carried out by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre without the permission of Rome in the summer of 1988 and the Motu Proprio Ecclesia Dei traditional Catholics both participate. The group standing in unity with Rome  continued commenced the pilgrimage commenced in 1983, while the SSPX in brought its own pilgrimage to life in 1989. Both pilgrimages take place at the same time and run the same route, but in reverse directions. During the Pentecost Pilgrimage of Ecclesia Dei communities will celebrate its  Masses at the cathedrals of Chartres and Paris and will be celebrated only on the second day in an open field, while the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass must take place in the open air on the pilgrimage of the SSPX.
If and when the two opposing pilgrimages are merged, no one can say. The doubling is some a nuisance because it is seen as a visible expression of an open wound. Fortunately the spiritual profit for the personal life of faith doesn't depend for most on this issue, but on attending the pilgrimage. It is physically and mentally a challenge for which both come from two directions to Mary. Both the Cathedral of Paris and Chartres Cathedral is dedicated to the Blessed Mother.

Can't wait until you write a blog entry about Cormac Brissett being an Advocate for NAMBLA. Charles Nelson Riley said the Salvatorians seem too faggy to him!
