Our Lady of Lourdes

 

Immaculate Mary,
you appeared to St. Bernadette
and gave her a mission to build up Lourdes
as a sacred shrine to bring people to God.
Through your intercession,
countless graces have been given
to the thousands of people
who have flocked to Lourdes.
Some have even received the grace of physical healing.

I join my prayers to the pilgrims at your shrine
who sing thousands of Aves to you.
I place all my trust in you
and give you all my love.

  1. Happy and holy feastday to you, Gabrielle. I was able to watch the video and was reminded again of the great universality of Marian devotion

  2. Thank you, Ann. I attended Mass on my lunchhour, and there was a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes that had been placed at the base of the altar, and we began with some verses of Salve Regina (in English). Then at the close of Mass we said a Hail Mary and sang Ave Maria. It was so lovely. I chose this little video because all the different voices joining in seemed to be so appropriate with the lines of the prayer: “I join my prayers to the pilgrims at your shrine
    who sing thousands of Aves to you.” I hope you had a beautiful day as well.
