Assumption - August 2015

We were very active during the week of the Assumption with many groups. It is so satisfying to share the story of Our Lady of Lourdes with all those who visit the Shrine.  The one that that is a bit disturbing is that some of these visitors are not familiar with the story of Our Lady and Bernadette.  with that in mind, we would like to share this story with monthly posts.  Now that it is December, we have some catching up to do.

We begin the story with Mary appearing to Bernadette in Lourdes, France on 1858 on February 11th. 
Bernadette was looking for firewood in a garbage dump.  Imagine that, the place was not beautiful at all. 
Today we make sure that it is beautiful because of the special person who appeared to Bernadette. 
Did you also know that before Bernadette saw the "beautiful lady" she felt a strong wind?  Do you think that the wind was actually nature or do you think that maybe it was the Holy Spirit or an angel heralding Mary's apparition?  Just bring this much of the story to prayer and see what the Lord tells you.
