Pray Three Hail Mary's!

It has been said, through local tradition passed down through generations in Lourdes, if you pray three Hail Mary's in front of the Crowned Virgin statue, you will return to Lourdes.

We know, like Bernadette, we can return
to the Grotto everyday in our heart, but three Hail Mary's can only help!

For fun, lets pray in French!

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâce. Le Seigneur est avec vous. Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes, et Jésus, le fruit de vos entrailles, est béni.

Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous, pauvres pécheurs, maintenant et à
l'heure de notre mort.

Say YES to the Dress!

In Lourdes, since so many different languages are spoken, visuals are very helpful. Female volunteers are asked to wear a white nurse dress uniform. That way pilgrims from all over the world know who to ask for help!

Ladies will select their white nurse dress uniforms today.

Mary wore several different dresses. Which dress do you think Mary wore best?

We vote Our Lady of Lourdes, white dress and blue sash, stunning!
Let's go for a hike together!

To the Stations of the Cross! We will walk rain or shine to see the 15 stations
of the cross, beautifully bronzed, over 7 feet tall!

Saint Bernadette loved to pray the Stations of the Cross for the same reason that she was deeply attached to the Eucharist.

Let us ask her “how to make the Sign of the Cross well.”

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
