October Special Needs Pilgrimage
“As we experience this pilgrimage, we are reminded of Our Lady’s enduring faithfulness. We look around us at so many faces and lives of pilgrims still processing to the Grotto. Just as she requested in 1858. As pilgrims, we come still believing and still hoping, as we leave our petitions at her feet in the Grotto.
For all of us here on this journey, we pray that each one of us has learned from our volunteers, the charism and true spirit of living under the mantle of Our Lady of Lourdes. From beginning to end, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospitality was one unit serving Our Lady. Their charism of love and grace never missed a beat! Personally, I remember saying, “I hope that rubs off on me!”
Here we are today, 2022, and Bernadette remains for us a humble and radiant herald of Our Lord and Our Lady, echoing across centuries a message of challenge and hope: change your hearts, begin to fully live the Gospel of Jesus. May we meet the challenge!” – Lynn, Florida
St. Bernadette Relic Tour
“The power of God through a Saint. The number of people drawn to The Relics of St. Bernadette was amazing. Not just in the prayers and in the worship but in the fellowship. I was able to give and receive hugs all day long from people I see often and from people I hadn’t seen in a long time. I also met new people, all people answering God’s call to spend what time they could with one of His Saints.
The service and kindness of The North American Lourdes Volunteers, they were always there, serving in the background helping things flow. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is alive and well.
My brain and my heart are still bouncing from the experience. In the excitement that didn’t allow me to fall right asleep last night, I saw one more part of God’s love for us and his care: we NEED Saints. These men and women offer so much and draw us into a wonderful relationship with God, with the Church, and with each other. And I have come to know that we need these Saints. We need not only the examples of the past but to look for and see those examples in our present. I am different today than I was two days ago. I am closer to God.” – Tim, California
