Our Lady of Lourdes Prayer

Oh ever immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy, Health of the Sick, Refuge of Sinners, Comfortess of the Afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings.

Look upon me with mercy.

When you appeared in the grotto of Lourdes, you made it a privileged sanctuary where many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal.

I come, therefore, with unbounded confidence to implore your maternal intercession.

My loving Mother, obtain my request.

I will try to imitate your virtues so that I may one day share your company along with God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and bless you in eternity.

Our Lady of Lourdes

In 1858, in the grotto of Massabielle, near Lourdes in southern France, Our Lady appeared 18 times to Bernadette, a young peasant girl.

She revealed herself as the Immaculate Conception, asked that a chapel be built on the site of the vision, and told the girl to drink from the fountain in the grotto.

Not seeing a fountain, Bernadette dug at the designated spot and a spring began to flow, a flow which continues to this day.

Lourdes has become the most famous modern shrine of Our Lady.

Our Lady of Lourdes statues at The Grotto

These statues were originally located in the walled gardens at the Monastery of the Precious Blood in Southeast Portland. When the monastery closed in 1985, these two statues were presented as a gift to The Grotto.

These statues are a depiction of Bernadette Soubirous and Our Lady of Lourdes.
Gaze up at the spectacular cliff which separates the lower level at The Grotto from the Upper Gardens. You will see the statues honoring Our Lady of Lourdes part way up the cliff.
