Message for families from the Director of the modified Pilgrimage 2016

Memorandum

TO: Family-registrants – Pilgrimage 2016

FROM: Charles Zepeda, Director – Modified Pilgrimage

 

A pilgrim is one who prays on The Way to the destination of his prayers.

To prepare well for pilgrimage, therefore, Father Moreau, our Chaplain, asks each pilgrim & family to offer daily the three-line prayer composed by St. Nicholas of Flüe. Find it on this page of the Pilgrimage blog.

Looking for a ride to pilgrimage? Get in on the pilgrims’ forum, and form a car-pool — or make other plans with fellow-pilgrims for brigade life, camps, you name it.

Would you like your family to learn or practice some of the many songs sung on pilgrimage?

Click here to request a CD or cassette of the Pilgrimage’s very own Songs of Pilgrimage or the documentary video. Or paste the URL into your browser. http://national-coalition.org/w/songs-of-pilgrimage-order-form

Listening while you walk (to get your ‘souls’ in shape) or work around the house is a great way to prepare the days of grace.

A blessed pilgrimage!

Message for families from the Chief of Brigadiers, Pilgrimage 2016

Memorandum

TO: Family-registrants – Pilgrimage 2016

FROM: Reuben J. DeMaster – Chief of Brigadiers

 

Congratulations on taking a first step of pilgrimage with your family to Our Lady’s Shrine of Martyrs in Auriesville, NY!

The second step is much like every other step of pilgrimage: to pray with the other pilgrim-registrants also preparing to go to Auriesville. Indeed, prayer & penance is the beginning and end — the very reason — of the pilgrimage. The way of a pilgrim is the habit of ceaseless prayer.

That’s why Father Jean-Marie Moreau, the Pilgrimage Chaplain, asks each pilgrim to pray daily the very short prayer composed by St. Nicholas of Flüe. Find it on this page of the Pilgrimage blog.

“He who sings well, prays twice.” (Attributed to St. Augustine of Hippo.) Why not multiply your praying power by learning or practicing some of the many songs sung on pilgrimage?

Listening while you walk (to get your ‘souls’ in shape) or while putzing around the house is a great way to prepare the days of grace.

Please let me hear from you if you await the brigade assignment/s for your family, or if you have any questions about brigade-life. Click here to e-mail me.

Godspeed!

Veterans know there is never a better time than now to commence preparations. And there never seems to be enough time, no matter how long in advance one registers.

Please therefore contact your brigadier as soon as possible to get started. If you don’t know or cannot reach him or her, drop me an e-mail.

Some of the brigades already have blogs. If yours doesn’t, please encourage your brigadier to start one. You, he or she can contact the Pilgrimage’s Vice-Director for Communications, Samantha Lang, for ideas.

a word about conducting oneself & family modestly on pilgrimage, in dress foremost

Memorandum

TO: registrants — fellow pilgrims in The Lord

FROM: Greg Lloyd – Director of the Pilgrimage

 

The pilgrimage’s Chaplain has asked me to remind pilgrims to observe norms of Christian modesty on pilgrimage.

As regards clothes, they are to adorn and conceal, not reveal the body, its figure and skin. Decent apparel complements, without flaunting, one’s God-given beauty. It is an outward sign of the soul’s invisible dignity and virtues.

Gentlemen are asked please to refrain from wearing short-trousers, tank tops, tee shirts, and/or apparel with shocking or distracting designs. Though in the Adirondack wilderness, we also attend holy Mass. It is only fitting, therefore, to keep clothing neat and in good repair.

On pilgrimage, most ladies wear dresses or skirts, which we ask always to be cut below knee length. If they find they must wear slacks, they are durable, but always loose-fitting, and to the ankle. Blouses should also show good measure: not tight-fitting or sleeveless, and no low necklines. In the apostolic tradition, ladies also wear a hat, scarf, or mantilla while praying the holy Mass. (Cf. Epistle of St. Paul, I Cor. xi, 6-7)

Please let me hear from you if you have any questions.

Godspeed!

Gregory P. Lloyd
Pilgrimage Director
