What is the Message of Lourdes?

Our Lady of Lourdes sang a song of restoration. Although her words were delivered exclusively to a poor French teenager a century and a half ago, we can still wrest important meaning from them today (yes, even though we are not ourselves 19th-century French peasants).

She spoke to Bernadette as a mother, but she spoke to the world. Our Lady’s words are for all of us. Bernadette’s world was rife with division, as ours is today. Our Lady came to heal, to bind up wounds, and to renew.

The Message of Lourdes includes

  • stunning photography on every page
  • an introduction to the Lourdes apparitions
  • a meditation, reflection question, and prayer for each of the seven messages
  • a brief overview of our family’s Lourdes experience
  • a conclusion that encourages you to go forth and the live the Message of Lourdes in your own life.

What is Our Lady of Lourdes singing to you across the years?

This eBook is my free gift to you. I feel so strongly that the message of Lourdes is for everyone that I just want to share it with as many people as possible.
