Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and World Day of the Sick--February 11

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.  Here is a film of the Grotto of Lourdes in Emmitsburg, MD which has a replica of the grotto in Lourdes, France, an outdoor Stations of the Cross, and outdoor life size crucifixion sculpture, an outdoor Rosary Walk with mosaic illustrations, many beautiful statues and a glass chapel where Mass is said.

On this feast day of Our Lady, take a minute to travel to the Grotto and lay your intentions at the foot of Our Lady in prayer.

Today is also The World Day of the Sick and Father James Kubicki has this reflection on Lourdes and suffering.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
