In the service of Our Lady of Lourdes
When he arrives in Lourdes, a priest puts himself at the service of Mary, by listening to the pilgrims.
He needs to be both a historian; able to answer questions about the apparitions of the Virgin to Bernadette Soubirous, and sometimes also a confidant; giving the sacrament of reconciliation.
He is also ready to answer a question that is often asked, how should we pray for vocations?
A candle for vocations
Let us pray together that the priests may know how to be ready for and to welcome pilgrims and visitors from all over the world, and that they may help them all to be touched by the radiant light of Heaven.
