Our Lady of Lourdes

Uncategorized Add comments

Mama Mary has been given many titles and recognition. One of the said titles associated to her is Our Lady of Lourdes. The said title was given to her because of her various apparitions in Lourdes, France. The most famous apparition happened in February 11, 1858 when the holy mother appeared before 14-year old girl,  Bernadette Soubirous. There had been series of apparitions following that date, and on March 25, the lady admitted to Bernadette that she is the Immaculate Conception.

Bernadette was eventually canonized as saint in 1933. She died in a convent at the age of 35. Thirty years following her death, her body was exhumed and found incorrupted! :)

February 11 is set as the day of the sick as well. The same date when Mama Mary first appeared to St. Bernadette. St. Bernadette is the patron saint for bodily illness.

Like in countless apparitions of Mama Mary, the message is always the same. Pray the rosary. Pray and repent.

I am guilty though of not praying the rosary everyday but I do when I can.

Everyday we face difficulties in our life that we almost give up. But, we should always remember that we have a mother who always pray for us. She is the closest human to God. Let us not forget that we Jesus. And, He is bigger than whatever problems we may have.

Our Lady of Lourdes, Pray for us!

Ciao! :)
