Day Three of Four Days of Photos From Lourdes

Beginning two days ago, plus today and tomorrow, we will post photos from Sr. Anne Francis and Sr. Bernardine's visit to Lourdes. Accompanying the photos will be commentary from Sr. Anne Francis.

Pilgrimage To Lourdes

As you might already have known, Lourdes lies south of Paris in the foothill of the Pyrenees mountains.

The Grotto of Massabielle is the site of St. Bernadette’s visions of the Virgin Mary in 1858. The Blessed Virgin is said to have pointed out a previously undiscovered spring into the grotto and instructed Bernadette to drink from it.

The spring water is believed to possess healing powers from our Blessed Mother, and the Church officially recognizes miraculous healing. (continued tomorrow)
