Virtual Lourdes Tour

It's been a Lourdes kind of weekend...

At St Pat's in Stoneham, MA, they had a virtual tour of Lourdes with a woman from Our Lady of Lourdes Hospitality North American Volunteers along with a chaplain from Lourdes. They presented a slide show of Lourdes and spoke of St. Bernadette, the thousands of miracles that have occured there and the Shrine/Basilica at Lourdes.

Coincidentally, I had rented "The Song of Bernadette" from Netflix and have begun reading the book by the same name. The movie highlighted how difficult a private revelation is on the person who experiences it and their family.

For those of you who would like your own personal tour of Lourdes, the official Lourdes website has several different webcams set up. They are preparing for the upcoming 150-year anniversary of the apparitions in 2008.
