Awesome! Is this a pilgrimage of reparation? It didn't really say but I'm sure it must be. I would love to go!

This is going to be an amazing pilgrimage! It would be great to have a few Rorate Caeli readers come along! If we have enough we can continue our CSP tradition of singing Compline together each evening of the pilgrimage.
Please consider joining us!

@ Marla

If you are referring to reparation for what was committed in Fatima a few years back, I don't think the FSSP is allowed to acknowledge the need or raise a voice against it.

I'd like to go too but only to add my voice to those who say "I'm sorry, Jesus. I'm sorry, Mary. I'm so very sorry."

What are you referring to FDC?

James the elder said...

Oh yes. The desecration of the Shrine at Fatima. When the pagan idol was placed on the holy Altar and their demon gods were worshipped during some interreligious nonsense. I remember. Unfortunately, I will never be able to forget it.

I have been on one of the FSSP pilgrimages, made friends who are still my friends. It was well run. Loved it. Great memories. I just wish I could join them again this year.

Reparation to the Sacred Heart and to Our Lady are very important. It can be made anywhere, and perhaps best during exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.

A pilgrimage is something very special. Some people look at it as a vacation, seeing holy places with the TLM, and good priests. For others it is something interior. A journey to bring you closer to Our Lord seeing Holy places, holy priests, and the Holy Mass.

I took my eldest daughter last year and plan to take my eldest son this year. Hopefully he will be drawn closer to Our Lord and Our Lady as welklk.

Hope some of you reading this will consider making the journey. It could be truly an event that could change your life.

Most of these pilgrimages are unique because they take you out of the beaten pattern. The visit to the tomb of King Karl is a shock to me. I have a picture of this holy king in my livingroom,I pray to him, Queen Zita is considered venerable also by the church. Together they suffered a great deal.
Having the Latin Mass said for you everyday of the journey is priceless!
