Prayer during the Pilgrimage
Pilgrims of all ages walk in `brigades' (groups of 15
to 35), under a patron saint. Brigades are formed by laymen who sing hymns, direct meditations, recite the holy
Rosary and other prayers. Pilgrims live according to the mandate of Our
Lord and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost - friendship & prayer
sustaining each pilgrim on his spiritual way.
Clerics & religious lead and accompany the
pilgrims along the way. Priests hear confessions, give private
counsel, direct meditations, and teach.
In these 358 words the attentive reader will come to
know the spirit & mission of pilgrims for restoration:
i.e., the 'spiritual DNA of the Thirteenth Apostle', and why he remains
ever linked to the First Among Them.
The sacred liturgy of the 1962 Roman missal is prayed
each day in accord with Pope Benedict XVI's motu proprio, Summorum
Pontificum. Glorious instrument of prayer, the traditional
Roman liturgy stresses the universal character of the Church. Holy Mass
in the forma extraordinaria is celebrated in a most solemn
manner at the crowning Mass on Sunday -- this year (2013) under the
Martyrs' Chapel [screened pavilion] in Auriesville.
