Pictures from Lourdes



H/T to Rorate Caeli for the video of the statue of Our Blessed Lady at Lourdes. Apparently there has been some cleaning and restoration at the Grotto: this worried me a little but it is hard to see from the video that anything has changed. I will be back there again with the annual parish pilgrimage at the end of May so it will be interesting to see what has been done. Meanwhile, having a good excuse to post photos of Lourdes, here is one of my pictures of the grotto in action on a normal day:

And here is one where I got to give the blessing for children:
