Although we cannot travel to Lourdes in person this year, let us make a pilgrimage in our hearts.

Join to pray the Lourdes Novena:

In these troubled times when, because of the Wuhan coronavirus, many of our contemporaries are concerned for the future, let us ask the Lord that through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes, he may grant us renewed confidence, hope and peace in our hearts.

Mary, because you are the smile of God, the reflection of the light of Christ, the home of the Holy Spirit, because you chose Bernadette in her poverty, because you are the morning star, the door to heaven and the first resurrected being, we pray to you and entrust our lives to you at a time when so many men and women fear for their health.

Assist the sick and the nursing staff, welcome those who have died and comfort their families.

To participate in this chain of prayer for the world which has its source in the Grotto of Lourdes, you simply need to join in the Rosary at the Grotto for 9 days, at 3.00 p.m. from 17th to 25th March 2020.
