Our Lady of Lourdes

Today Marian Valley celebrated the apparitions at Lourdes. We had a solemn mass and Solemn Procession to the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. In the above photo you can Clearly see Fr Prior participating in the procession as all Religious Brothers, Monks and Clergy should. That is in Choir dress (the Pauline monks have a mantle in choir) and in the actual procession, not sitting in a corner somewhere or socializing with a select few of the laity or trying to pass an alb and stole off as choir dress.

Here we are at the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. Marian Valley has Multiple mini Shrine deitcated to various Saints and Apparitions.

A real sorce of inspiration was to see all the sick, no matter that aliments, to walk in the procession. It really shows how strong there faith is.

We finished the day, with an individual benediction. The servers had a fun time sliding with Father, as he gave benediction.
