Liturgical Season: Easter
Monday 11th May 2020 - Our Lady of Lourdes
“I do not promise to make you happy in this world but in the other.”
Our Lady to Saint Bernadette
Throughout the history of the Church there have been times that Mary has made herself known to both groups of people and individuals. In 1858, Our Lady appeared to a young girl called Bernadette eighteen times over a period of months. Whilst the apparitions of Mary are amazing in themselves as she spoke to Bernadette about lots of different things, it is the miracles associated with Lourdes that encourages people to visit the shrine in France. Since 1858, there have been 69 verified miracles associated with Our Lady of Lourdes and many people claim physical and spiritual healing from visiting there.
Prayer: Immaculate Mary, Mother of Mercy, help the poor, sick and afflicted. I will try to be like you and comfort those in need. Amen.
