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.

  1. 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

      • I totally agree Sister Pat 🙂 Thank you kindly and bless you too 🙂
