Our Lady of Lourdes and Healing.

On 11 February 1858, our Blessed Mother appeared to a 14 year old girl named, Bernadette Soubirous, in a shallow cave or grotto in Lourdes, France, known as Massabielle. All together, the young visionary of Lourdes would have eighteen apparitions of Our Lady. The Mother of God would ask that a Chapel be built there and that Religious Processions be held, as well as Prayers for sinners. When asked to reveal her identity, Our Lady said that she was The Immaculate Conception. And, of course, a wondrous Spring of Water was revealed that still brings miraculous cures to this day.

Certainly, many are familiar with the apparitions at Lourdes and the Miracle of Healing brought to many with corporal infirmities. But Our Lady also brought the Spiritual Healing of her Divine Son. Modern man, infected with the errors of The Enlightenment, The French Revolution, and even Atheism, had sought to perfect the World using material means. Spiritual problems, however, can only be solved through Spiritual solutions. Our Lady provided such solutions from that shallow cave of Massabielle. From this cave . . . this grotto in Lourdes, healing, restoration, and renewal will come to modern man.
