 Our Description

Lourdes Today: A Pilgrimage to Mary's Grotto
By Kerry Crawford

"Lourdes is suspended between heaven and earth."
—From Chapter One

The Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette Soubirous, a fourteen-year-old peasant, eighteen times between February 11 and July 16, 1858, in Lourdes, France. Today, 150 years later, pilgrims continue to flock to this remote southwestern European village in search of the hope, healing and conversion long identified with this holy site.

Lourdes Today invites you to enter into the healing promise of this famous Marian shrine through contemporary testimony, history and first-hand descriptions of twenty-first-century Lourdes. Whether you visit Lourdes in person or experience it through this book, you will never forget your encounter with the mercy of God as revealed by the Mother of God to an ordinary French teenager.

He wrote, "I . . . profit by it to intensify my love of Mary and to emulate Bernadette in tender simplicity, filial confidence and absolute devotion." Certainly, we too can profit in the same way, especially in this year that marks the 150th anniversary of the apparitions at Lourdes.

Unfortunately, not many of us will be able to make an actual pilgrimage to Lourdes this year. However, we can do as many have done in the past and make a spiritual, interior pilgrimage. A number of books have been released this year to help us capture the spirituality and message of Lourdes. A most worthy volume, Lourdes Today, has been penned by Kerry Crawford.

Crawford takes the pilgrim reader on a tour of Lourdes and the grotto of Massabielle. She leads us on the candlelight procession and down into the baths. With her Full Review...
