Candle of Remembrance (At Lourdes France)

By Bernard Ringrose

Lourdes has become a major place of Roman Catholic Pilgrimage and miraculous healings . In 2004 , Jean-Paul II while visiting Lourdes , confirmed that Lourdes is a major place of prayer: " According to believers , the Virgin Mary appeared to Marie-Bernadette Soubirous on a total of 18 occasions at Lourdes." Lourdes is the place where the believers of France , and of so many other nations of Europe and the World, pray to the Lord on their knees
