February 16th was the three year anniversary of One Small Rose!Read More »
On this date last year I traveled to Lourdes, France for a pilgrimage.
It was my first pilgrimage to a Marian apparition site and a special experience.
In honor of this anniversary I’ll continue my Lourdes Series.
In my previous post, I gave descriptions of the first nine apparitions in Lourdes.
The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette Soubirous eighteen times in the Grotto of Massabielle.
The apparitions began on February 11th and ended on July 16th in the year 1858.
God calls each of us in different ways.
I arrived in Lourdes, France on July 31st and left on August 6th.
(I learned that Lourdes is pronounced “Lourd” in French.)
It was a special experience that I’m grateful for. It still seems surreal that God permitted us to go!
Today, August 22nd the Church celebrates the Memorial of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
