“For more than a century, miraculous encounters at Lourdes have captivated believers and non-believers from around the world. It was in a small, unknown hamlet in France where Our Lady of Lourdes appeared to a 14-year-old peasant girl named Bernadette Soubirous in 1858. At the direction of Our Lady, Bernadette bore the taunts of her neighbors who made fun of her as she began digging in the mud, only to unearth a spring of water – Lourdes water. In some cases, those who have been blessed with this water or who have bathed in it, have received miraculous healings from Our Lord.

Earlier episodes of “My Lourdes Faith Journey” series followed the triumph of grace over the challenges and difficulties of relatable real-life experiences today. Each 30-minute episode introduced a compelling story of suffering, brokenness, tragedy or loss transformed into healing, conversion and faith through the Gospel Message of Lourdes.

All new episodes of “My Lourdes Faith Journey,” which air at 5:30 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, July 10-14, with an encore at 2:30 a.m. ET the following morning, take a different turn as Host Marlene Watkins pulls back the curtain and goes behind the scenes of this internationally known shrine and place of pilgrimage.”
