Pilgrimages - Gestures and Tools


Father Giussani’s devotion to the Blessed Mother has immediately influenced his friends who have re-discovered the beauty of the devotion typical of the past: Gregorian chants, the Cortona Laudario, the Provençal and Latin hymns, the Holy Rosary, and the pilgrimage, as the emblem of the Christian path.

The destinations were and are those of the popular tradition: Lourdes, Częstochowa, Loreto. Of particular importance to the Movement is the walking pilgrimage from Macerata to Loreto, which was held for the first time in 1978 as a gesture of thanksgiving to the Virgin Mary at the end of the school year. In the following years it came to exceed eighty thousand participants from all over Italy and even from abroad.
