Chartres Pilgrimage in CWR

Just in time for Traddy Tuesday, my account of the Chartres Pilgrimage is up at Catholic World Report.

I left out the part where the Irish brought a flag commemorating the centenary of the Irish Easter Rising. It was the only overtly political symbol I saw there. The Scots marched beside a banner of the Queen of Peace.


  1. Great article.
    Good on you! I'm too chicken to even think of trying the Chartres Pilgrimage, having heard some of the 'horror stories'.

  2. It's tough, but you feel sooooo good at the end. Staying in a tiny, cheap French hotel room afterwards will feel like some over-the-top luxury. No queue for the toilet. Clean sheets. An actual bed. No German-speaking Boy Scouts with guitars--unless YOU are the German-speakinb Boy Scout with a guitar. Etc.
