Blessing of the Bikes
James Magness, Episcopal Bishop for the Armed Forces, participates in the third annual Blessing of the Bikes (and their riders) at Washington National Cathedral this weekend. A couple of hundred members of Rolling Thunder drive up into the forecourt of the cathedral for a service, followed by blessings with holy water sprinkled from boughs of boxwood. Tours follow, inside the cathedral, focusing on service and sacrifice; a fitting start to the Memorial Day weekend. (I didn't realize until editing this, that the cathedral appears as a distorted reflection in the front bike's chrome - as do I, taking the picture!)
