A white flower for Our Lady of Lourdes
In this month of Mary, from 1st – 31st May 2021, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes invites you to place a white flower at the foot of the statue of the Crowned Virgin on the large esplanade in front of the Rosary Basilica.
Pilgrims gather in front of her in their thousands, to give thanks for graces received. By tradition, they wind flowers through the railings that surround the statue of the Crowned Virgin. A gesture of tenderness and gratitude.
Due to the pandemic, at the beginning of this month of Mary, there are few pilgrims, and the railings are devoid of flowers.
For those who are prevented from coming to Lourdes, the Sanctuary is offering to lay a white flower at the statue for Our Lady.
