Chartres Pilgrimage: 2009 Video

This was put up on YouTube today, there have been four views at the time of posting, it deserves more! It is the reflection of an American, John Rao, an Associate Professor of History at St John's University in New York.

This the blurb

The Association Notre-Dame de Chrétienté organizes every year at Pentecost a pilgrimage from Notre-Dame de Paris to Notre-Dame de Chartres (France): three days to live and build the Christianity of the third millennium. Covering within three days a distance of approximately 65 miles, the pilgrims walk in chapters. The pilgrimage has about 160 chapters each comprising around fifty pilgrims from all over France and even abroad (USA, Great Britain, Poland, Canada, Spain, etc. ...). Each year, approximately 8,000 to 10,000 pilgrims, walk to the Marian shrine of Chartres, expressing the condition of Christian life which is to be a long pilgrimage and a long walk to paradise...

You know, if they just skateboarded it there would probably be a lot less blisters and they could do it a lot faster. Carpool works better too.
