The coming of Our Lady at Lourdes was a great gift from God. Soubirous said, “One must have faith and pray; the water will have no virtue without faith.” “O my mother, in your heart I placed all my anguish of my heart and it is there that I gain strength and courage.” Sainte Berrnadette Personal Notebook p.28.
Virgin Mary’s apparitions in Lourdes is an amazing part of Rosary history. To this day, healing waters still flow from the place where she appeared. Since the Apparitions, Lourdes had to deal with about 7000 cases of unexplained cures. 69 cases have been recognised as Miraculous cures in Lourdes by the Church at this time. “Here, the Virgin Mary invited Bernadette to say the Rosary, fingering her own rosary. This grotto has become an astonishing school of prayer, where Mary teaches everyone to contemplate with love the face of the Christ. That’s why Lourdes is the place where the believers of France and of so many other nations of Europe and the world pray him, on their knees” said Jean-Paul II in Lourdes in 2004.
11th February us the Universal celebration of Our Lady of Lourdes.
Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes
Mary, you showed yourself to Bernadette
in the crevice of the rock.
In the cold and grey of winter,
you brought the warmth, light and beauty
of your presence,
In the often obscure depths of our lives,
in the depth of the world where evil is so powerful,
return our confidence!
You are the Immaculate Conception,
come to our aid, sinners that we are.
Give us the humility to have a change of heart,
the courage to do penance.
Teach us to pray for all people.
Guide us to the source of true life.
Make us pilgrims going forward with your Church,
whet our appetite for the Eucharist,
the bread for the journey, the bread of life.
The Spirit brought about wonders in you, O Mary :
by his power, he has placed you near the Father,
in the glory of your eternal Son.
Look with kindness
on our miserable bodies and hearts.
Shine forth for us, like a gentle light,
at the hour of our death.
Together with Bernadette, we pray to you, O Mary,
as your poor children.
May we enter, like her, into the spirit of the Beatitudes.
Then, we will be able, here below,
begin to know the joy of the Kingdom of Heaven
and sing together with you :
Glory to you, Virgin Mary,
blessed servant of the Lord,
Mother of God,
dwelling place of the Holy Spirit!
