Meath Pilgrimage to Lourdes 12th to 17th September
This is a special year for the Meath Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes. The first pilgrimage travelled in 1948 and this year we are celebrating 70 years. During those years many sick people have been able to go to Lourdes with the assistance of volunteers who attend to the needs of pilgrims. It is a bringing together of people from all over the Diocese and it is an experience of grace and joy and healing for so many people.
This year also marks a special celebration in Lourdes itself; it is 160 years ago since our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette. The grotto in Lourdes, the water, the baths, the processions, the Eucharist, the candles, the music, the gathering of people from all over the world are all part of a special place where pilgrims experience the healing presence of God and hearts are uplifted.
This Wednesday, 12th September, the pilgrimage will once again travel to Lourdes with Bishop Deenihan and Bishop Smith, our sick, our volunteer staff and pilgrims. The pilgrimage is possible because of the generosity of so many people, it is a time of blessing and grace for our entire Diocese. Please keep the pilgrims in your prayers as they carry with them the intentions of so many people and lay them into the hands of our Lord through the intercession of Mary. Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
