Picture: Our Lady of Lourdes.
The first of the eighteen apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to the humble Bernadette took place at Lourdes on February 11, 1858.
On March 25th, when Bernadette asked the Beautiful Lady her name, she replied: "I am the Immaculate Conception."
The devotion of people in all parts of the world to Our Lady of Lourdes, together with the countless miracles that have been wrought through her intercession, has caused one of the most marvellous regenerations in the history of the Church.
O God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin, prepared a worthy dwelling place for Your Son, we humbly beseech You, that celebrating the Apparition of this same Blessed Virgin, we may obtain health of soul and body. Amen.
