Something uplifting for a change – great videos of Chartres pilgrimage October 28, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Art and Architecture, awesomeness, Basics, Christendom, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, Latin Mass, sanctity, the struggle for the Church, Tradition, true leadership, Virtue.
I’ve been waiting for this! JMJHFProductions – a small Catholic apostolate most deserving of support, in my estimation (you can donate to them here) – accompanied the Remnant Chartres pilgrimage this year. They filmed a great deal of footage in HD. Just a couple days ago, they uploaded their 1 hour summary video of the 3 day pilgrimage. There is so much to find uplifting and edifying in this footage! So many people, but especially young, taking part in a time-honored devotion and witness to our Faith! So many assisting devoutly at the Traditional Latin Mass! Such inspiring art and architecture!
The Chartres pilgrimage is an overwhelmingly traditional phenomenon. What a blessing to see so many souls willing to undertake this arduous hike in all kinds of weather.
I really do appreciate these videos. I have been on edge since late last week for a number of reasons – the Synod, we’ve all been sick, work suddenly decided to go crazy – and I’ve needed something to settle me down. This ought to fit the bill very nicely. It also fills me with desire to assist at a Chartres pilgrimage someday before I die, even though I am not a big traveler.
I pray you find this as enjoyable as I did. You might find yourself recognizing a few faces, as I did.
Now a few more brief videos also from the pilgrimage:
And finally a repost of the incredible light show from the Chartres Cathedral at the conclusion of the pilgrimage:
If you haven’t subscribed to the JMJHFProductions Youtube page, you should! I’m certain they’ll be uploading more videos from the Chartres pilgrimage and the rest of the Remnant’s summer Euro-tour in the coming weeks. The folks who run JMJHF are just regular Catholics like you and I. They operate off donations from other generous Catholics. If you find their work edifying, I might again impugn on your charity by supporting them. Every little bit helps.
