RORATE CÆLI: Strong Communiqué of the Chartres Pilgrimage: “Clericalism-Caudillism never works well, motu proprio will be difficult to apply in a Church which is in a catastrophic situation.”

Traditional-minded Catholics from all over the world are familiar with the largest of all current Catholic pilgrimages, the Paris-Chartres Pilgrimage that takes place each year (when pandemics allow it…) in the weekend of Pentecost. It assembles in particular thousands and thousands of young pilgrims, attached to the Traditional liturgy. The Chartres Pilgrimage was famous in the Middle Ages, and made famous once again by Charles Péguy in the early 20th century — it was recreated by Traditional Catholics eager to proclaim their Faith and their liturgical heritage in 1983.  Many organizations around the world have made their view and dismay regarding Francis anti-Summorum motu proprio since Friday. They are all available online. But this one by the Pilgrimage organizers (Association Notre-Dame de Chrétienté / Our Lady of Christendom Association) is particularly poignant, and expresses the general feeling of most Traditional Catholics well.
