When arriving at the Grotto, Bernadette asked the people to kneel and pray the holy rosary. The Blessed Mother appeared again. Bernadette’s face was transfigured. She sprinkled holy water and said: “ If you come from God, come near us.” The holy water touched the Blessed Mother’s feet and Mary came closer to Bernadette with a gentle smile . She took the holy rosary and made the sign of the cross. Both started to pray.
Sometimes a single wonder belongs to a single day. Then it fades and is forgotten. Not so the wonder that is Lourdes, or the glorious apparition of the lovely Lady of Lourdes.
Today and every day since the Lady appeared to Bernadette, miracles mark the presence of God at Lourdes.
Because we cannot always travel to it, we have reproduced it in every city in the world. It is the focal part of convent gardens. It is the dearest meeting place of a great Catholic university. It gathers around it the children in school yards. The grotto of Lourdes has found its way into our churches. It stands as the chief ornament in many a great basilica.</blockquote>
“ Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”
