Last weekend the Bishop led the Diocese on pilgrimage to the restored Shrine of Our Lady St Mary of Glastonbury. The theme of pilgrimage seems to run through the calendar this week too. Vezelay in France is a centre for devotion to St Mary Magdalene. Its magnificent church is reliquary for some of her relics. Most of us know something about the great shrine of St James the Great at Santiago de Compostella in the Gallician region of Spain. The famous pilgrim routes converging on Compostella are known collectively as the Camino. The Cathedral and Shrine church also has one of the biggest thuribles in regular use in worship. Perhaps less well known is the pilgrimage to St Anne at Auray in Brittany, following visions received by Yvon Nicolazic in the 17th century. Brittany’s Celtic Catholic devotion to St Anne resembles Welsh devotion to St David, but has never been interrupted by a reformation. The Grand Pardon de Sainte Anne begins on the evening before the feast day. Thousands come for the outdoor Pilgrim Mass. Civic, political and ecclesiastical dignitaries attend.
