Lourdes (St. Bernadette)

Lourdes:

She came for you and for every one of us! 6 million Pilgrims go to Lourdes each year and 10,000 visit this holy site daily. At the foot of the Pyrenees mountains in Southwestern France, nestled between the spectacular mountain river, Gave de Pau, is Lourdes, one of the most paramount pilgrimage sites in the World. Lourdes is the birthplace of St. Bernadette, to whom Our Lady appeared to in 1858, near the Grotto of Massabielle. Included in our pilgrimage to Lourdes are visits to the Sanctuary and the Basilica of St. Pius X, the world’s largest underground church. Drink from the spring that the Virgin directed Bernadette to do, located at the base of the Grotto, which has flowed uninterrupted since 1858. Wash yourself in the baths, that has resulted in hundreds of miraculous cures. Contemplate Christ’s Passion as you pray the unique three-dimensional Stations of the Cross. Attend the Blessing of the Sick, and participate in the nightly candlelight processions requested by Our Lady. Daily Mass, and Mass at the Grotto on Sunday will be followed by a video presentation telling the miraculous story of Lourdes. Visit Lourdes and experience a spiritual journey, one that many have claimed healing and conversion from.

Day 3 & 4

Lourdes (Guided).


Over the next two days, you will stay in a small town, nestled within the Pyrenees Mountains. During your time in Lourdes, you will pray and meditate in a site of Our Lady’s apparitions. Our Lady first appeared to Bernadette in 1858, and announced herself as “The Immaculate Conception”, near the Grotto of Massabielle. During the first two apparitions, little Bernadette prayed the Rosary with Our Lady and left without any exchange of words. During the following apparitions, Our Lady emphasized God’s love for us, penance and the necessity of performing acts of penance for sinners. Throughout your time in Lourdes, you will have the opportunity to attend Mass at the Grotto, where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette; watch a video presentation that explains in detail, the story of Lourdes; drink water from the miraculous spring that has healed many and submerge yourself in the healing baths. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to experience Christ’s unconditional love, as you meditate upon the “life size” Stations of the Cross that overlook the Grotto of Massabielle. Also in Lourdes, you will walk in and meditate upon the footsteps of St. Bernadette. Your group will have the opportunity to see Boly Mill, the birthplace of St. Bernadette, and the “Cachot,” an abandoned prison where Bernadette’s impoverished family lived. Each evening following dinner, you will have an opportunity to attend the candlelight procession and the Rosary, before a restful overnight.

    Congratulations for the great work, very attentive in everything and a great responsibility. I congratulate you for having gathered all my courage to travel, excellent agency very responsible and attentive. Happy to travel and know the beauties of worl.

  2. :

    Everything was so easy and seamless I kept waiting for a hiccup or something to go wrong, but everything was great. We had just enough time to relax at every place. The activities that they planned for us were just incredible. They really maximized our time at every place, made sure we saw all of the key sights in a fun and relaxing way. During the trip we ran into many honeymooners who all bonded over travel planning nightmares and I” so thankful we didn’t have to deal with any of that. My husband and I are so happy that our agent took such good care of us. There is no other way we would travel anymore this was absolutely the best trip!

    This travel agent planned the perfect trip for us! Our hotels were beautiful, and our drivers and guides were wonderful! My husband and I could never have planned this trip on our own. We could not have asked for more – every detail was perfect.

    Now that unfortunately our trip is over, I have nothing but praise for this company and our agent. Very kind and responsible in each of their promises.
