Historic liturgies on Easter Eve sometimes included labyrinth dances. Joyous movements of the clergy as they celebrated the resurrection of Christ using song and symbol were recorded in medieval documents.
This Easter at around 10:00 PM a Liturgy of Light took place in the Chartres Cathedral. Rather than reproducing a medieval service, this prayer on the labyrinth which concluded at the altar was a modern celebration of the joy of knowing and worshipping the Risen Christ.
Thanks to the bishop, the cathedral of Chartres, and the Community of Chemin Neuf for the meaningful time of prayer we shared during this Easter celebration of God’s profound and wondrous light and love.
