Lourdes is one of the most loved shrines throughout the whole world. It is a place like no other.  At Lourdes people experience the gentle love and healing hand of God in a place resplendent in natural beauty. 

So many millions have come to Our Lady of Lourdes burdened with their sufferings of various kinds:  physical, emotional, spiritual, and millions have been consoled and healed by the love and power of the prayers of Our Lady of Lourdes both at Lourdes itself and  wherever She has been revered and her intercession sought.Right from the beginning cures were reported by people who had access to water from Lourdes. A sick boy of 16 named Henri Busquet was refused permission to visit Lourdes by his parents, but a neighbor provided him with some Lourdes water and the agonising throat ulcer caused by tuberculosis disappeared completely. This was only ten

weeks after the first apparition.  When the son of Napolean III  was gravely ill, he was  restored to complete health through water obtained from Lourdes.  This miracle led to the emperor to allow the grotto to be reopened to the public.  Lourdes led to a great renewal of religious practice in France. Some historians state  that Lourdes was the most important event that occurred in France during the whole of the 1800s.  

There are many healings that have been verified through vigorous  scientific research.   However, they certainly are the tip of the iceberg.  Most people who are cured do not go through the lengthy process of having their cure medically and scientifically verified by those responsible at Lourdes.    

Our Lady is there to heal and bless where ever people gather in Her honour.   Just a few years ago one of our own members, Juliana, who had been confined to a wheel chair was completely healed, through Our Lady of Lourdes. 

 

Please do encourage others to come and receive the blessings.  Just like at Lourdes there will be blessing with the Blessed Sacrament before the Benediction.  There will be individual blessing with the water from Lourdes after the Mass. Our Lady will be honoured with a procession.  There will be a special healing Mass.  So many graces and blessings.  Do not miss this wonderful day. 

 

There will also be the First Class relic of the great and incorrupt St Bernadette Soubirous, one of the most loved saints, and the humble instrument chosen by God.  So many came to belief in Lourdes because of her sincerity, her simplicity and because the grace of God flowed so powerfully through her.   Come and venerate her first class relic.  St Bernadette will surely intercede for us if we pray with faith and trust on this Lourdes day celebration.

 

Please enlighten and bring others to this very special event. St Colman’s is very accessible:  There is off street parking behind the Church; It is very  close to Balaclava Station, and Trams 3&16 bring you right to the doors of the Church.
