Our Lady of Lourdes

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, so today I include both a photo from the Basilica at Lourdes, France, and a lovely stanza from the poem, “Our Lady of Lourdes”, by Francesca Brennan.

Beneath small Lourdes gray-blue sky
Cool February’s airs
Encanopied in ether high
All serve as courtiers.

The welcoming arms of Mary from the mosaic in the dome of the basilica at Lourdes

    My mum has been to Lourdes 7 times now but can’t travel anymore because of ill health, I have never been but would dearly like to go.

      I think that she can travel to Lourdes in her heart. Our Lady would honor that. Blessings to both of you, Sister Pat
