Our Catholic friends thought the experience very spiritual so we were happy that they were... More

This is one place that you can just sit, meditate and pray to the Almighty Father. If you feel so empty and alone, once you step into Sanctuary, all worries are gone. You just feel loved and at peace. A very nice place to contemplate and connect with God through the intercession of Mama Mary and St Bernadette.

Catholic procession is a must - very uplifting. Drink the water, bathe and go to mass. there could be some healing as all my high iron, blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol were brought down to normal. But pray and walk.

The possibilities for moments of grace at the Sanctuary of Lourdes can be endless. Some examples I experienced: 1. The short windows of open space and quiet at the Grotto: visit early in the morning, before the 7:00 am mass, or late at night, before or after the 11:00 pm mass, during the pilgrimage period.These are also the best times...

Pilgrimage at the sanctuary has to be done at least once in your life. Ideal place to reconnect with yourself and with God
