"The saint of Lourdes ... the saint of penance ... the saint of poverty ... Our Lady's child visionary is also to many the saint of family. Born January 7, 1844 at a time of prosperity for her family, her parents and younger siblings lived in an environment of deep love and devotion for each other. However, hard times soon fell on agricultural France, and worse yet, a string of seemingly endless bad luck fell on the Soubirous family. Put to the test time and again, Bernadette and her family discovered the meaning of unconditional commitment".
It has been 160 years since the first apparition at Lourdes took place. The year 2018 takes us back to the pinnacle moment of the first appearance that Our Lady made to Bernadette. This initial visit by Our Lady was to give instructions to Bernadette to give to the Priest to build a church. "This reminds us of the Gospel: the encounter between the richness of God and the poverty of Man. Christ came to look for those who are lost. God comes to tell us that He loves us: This is essentially the “Message of Lourdes”…and God loves us just as we are". We are not only following tradition, but also our faith in the teachings of Christ "DO WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU"
If you have never been to Lourdes you will appreciate the captivating idyllic ambiance of the Pyrenees Mountains . We will assist you at Lourdes in making your experience as spiritually uplifting as possible. Your visit will involve attending Mass, reciting the Holy Rosary, Stations of the Cross, high or low station, Bernadette's museum, candlelight procession, and so much more. You will have time to yourself to explore the real beauty of Lourdes and all that it spiritually has to offer.
During the Procession, and depending on the day, the pilgrims recite the Mysteries of the Rosary.
"At the beginning of each decade, a few words in several languages give direction to the prayer so that it does not become a monotonous repetition. The Ave Maria and other hymns can be heard in many languages. In the serenity of the evening, each pilgrim carries his or her own personal intentions as the prayer gathers the assembly “of all nations, people and languages” with the Virgin Mary, like the disciples in the Cenacle after the Ascension of Christ. The procession always takes place regardless of the weather: the Lourdes pilgrim is prudent and knows when to carry an umbrella.
If you're motivated by your prayer life and want to share this with others, why not join us on pilgrimage where you can express your joy of the living God.
