En Route to Our Lady of Lourdes

As I write, I am just getting ready to depart for the renowned shrine of Our Lady in Lourdes, in southwest France. I’ll be in the company of 300 pilgrims – – 100 sick, and 200 caregivers – – all arranged by the Knights of Malta, historically celebrated for their solicitude for the sick.

All pilgrims travel to Lourdes for healing — soul, mind, body. It’s a place where everyone is convinced, “I need God,” itself a miracle in a world tempted to conclude we can ignore, deny, forget about, or oppose the Lord.

It’s hardly a spa, since it can be an arduous and sacrificial journey. But rare is he/she who returns without a report of a grace, a real “boost” in one’s interior life.

To the legendary grotto I will bring your intentions!

Father Dave Dwyer and Cardinal Dolan talked about the ordination of seven of our Archdiocese of New York priests and the Eucharistic Revival pilgrimage that went through the Archdiocese this weekend.

This past Tuesday night, the high school came together to celebrate student success and the school’s 100% acceptance rate into four-year colleges. Cardinal Dolan even stopped by to give his best wishes.
