Tuesday Hospitalité Mass

Theme: Good News to the poor – detachment from earthly things

The Hospitalité Mass – which begins at an early hour – is a Mass of Thanksgiving for the work of service offered by so many people on our pilgrimage in Lourdes. The Hospitalité is the branch of the pilgrimage which is the expression of nursing care and attention to the welfare of our sick pilgrims.

 Some members of our pilgrimage have been coming to Lourdes to serve sick pilgrims for decades; many of the young people from our school Sixth Forms will be here ministering to those who are sick for the first time, and it will be the part of the pilgrimage which they will remember most.

Christ taught by example: Here I am among you as one who serves.

In the Scripture Readings of our Mass today, we shall hear from the Letter of St James and the Gospel of Mark that it is not by the world’s standards that our most important judgement comes. Our values are the values of heaven, which has a justice system which is quite different.
