Royals Join Pilgrimage and Eucharistic Adoration

May 29, 2014

According to the Luxemburger Wort:

Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa…made their way through town on foot from Notre Dame Cathedral to the palace.

They were joined by pilgrims for the final procession through the capital, before taking the Eucharist outside the Luxembourg City palace.

The Octave pilgrimage celebrates the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Luxembourg, patron saint of the Grand Duchy. Every year, the pilgrimage begins on the third Sunday after Easter and continues for two weeks until the fifth Sunday after Easter.

It is accompanied by the so-called “Mäertchen” – a market in the City centre…
