Our Lady of Lourdes



I always loved that story and I have told my kids and my husband, if it ever gets to the point that I require extraordinary medical procedures to stay alive- I'd rather take a trip to France and see Lourdes!! Even if I don't get a cure at least I'll have made one last pilgrimage to a place I've always imagined!

Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Bernadette.

But here's the next best thing - Web Cam - Live from Lourdes France!
You can place a petition and  have a candle lit at the grotto!

The Story of Our Lady of Lourdes in French   and in English.

In years past the kids and I have watchedSong of Bernadette."  Available on Netflix DVD or Amazon!




 I know it made an impression on them because they have brought up parts of the movie in the past. The poverty of the Soubirous family was very striking. Two of our favorite scenes - Bernadette digging the spring at Lourdes, and at the end when her terrible suffering is revealed just before she dies - that part always gets me!





This site is pretty neat. It talks about Lourdes and about the incorruptible body of St. Bernadette with pictures!
