Vigil

Posted October 15th, 2016 at 08:46 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
One of the squires from my medieval program sat vigil last night. Itís one of the steps to becoming a knight. Usually the squire receives a vision, and then they know the vigil is complete.

We take our knighting seriously. Most pages will take years to become squires, and then they work for years as squires before they consider attempting knighthood. The vigil is ancient- in medieval times squires knelt in churches considering the world and their part in it.

Our medieval program isnít nearly as strenuous as the ancient reality. Kids learn by experience but then they go home and eat pizza and play on their ipads. But there is something that draws some of them and keeps them coming back to the medieval program over and over again.

Last night the squire was nervous, which is reasonable. Kneeling all night in a darkened and supposedly haunted room to face your fears and your future could be considering daunting. Fear is powerful force...
