Lourdes Shrine

“Our pilgrimage began in the historic French town of Lourdes, where we prayed before the Grotto at which the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette in 1858.

We scaled the Espelugues Hill while praying the Way of the Cross before life-sized stations, and we collected holy water from the very spring that Bernadette discovered.

Many of us went to the baths to bathe in this spring water and pray for special intentions.  It was moving to see those who were handicapped or ill being taken to the bathes in wheelchairs by volunteers; their faith inspired us tremendously.

Through this experience I, personally, better understand what it means to be a member of the Catholic Church.”
