February 11, 2014: Our Lady of Lourdes Feast Day

11 Feb

Lourdes grottoBetween February 11 and July 16, 1858, the Blessed Virgin appeared eighteen times to Marie Bernade (St. Bernadette) Soubirous in the hollow of the rocks at Lourdes. On March 25 she said to the little shepherdess who was only fourteen years of age: “I am the Immaculate Conception.” Since then Lourdes has become a place of pilgrimage and many cures and conversions have taken place. The message of Lourdes is a call to personal conversion, prayer, and charity.

Bernadette_SoubirousPrayer

Grant us, O merciful God, protection in our weakness, that we, who keep the Memorial of the Immaculate Mother of God, may with the help of her intercession, rise up from our iniquities. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
