Our Lady of Lourdes
Today is the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Lourdes is one of the great places of pilgrimage in the Christian world. It is above all a place of pilgrimage for the sick. It has been said that the sick are the royalty of Lourdes. People are drawn there because we believe that it is one of those places where heaven once touched earth.
