We had our meeting this evening to prepare for the parish Pilgrimage to Lourdes at the end of May. I showed some pictures to illustrate the talk. You might appreciate some of them.
Through the trees, a view of the Immaculate Conception Basilica:
The river Gave and he complex of Churches:
The crown at the top of the Rosary Basilica:
Towards the end of the torchlight procession:
A view of the grotto where Our Lady appeared to St Bernadette:
One of my favourite images in Lourdes: in the Rosary Basilica, a mosaic of a young Mary with the legend "Par Marie a Jesus" - "Through Mary to Jesus"
I can't wait to be there again!
