ST. BERNADETTE, PLEASE PRAY FOR US! AMEN.

Lourdes, France, Fatima, Portugal was always my dream place to visit during my youth. All of us 12 children were interns (or boarders in school from kindergarden on to college), being brought up by the nuns were spoke much of these religious places and it became my wish dream that one day I could visit them. Since I was married to a European, here in Barcelona, then it was more than a blessing as Lourdes, Fatima, Medjougori are but only two hours flight away from home. Fortunately, I had met people that needed tour guides to Lourdes and had offered them my time, service and love the fact that I can be in Lourdes more often. Have been to Lourdes so many times I then had establish friendship and connection with people from Lourdes that made me feel more welcome to be in a tiny lovely and very busy town. The past two years, I had spend few visits doing volunteer work. We did volunteer pushing the sick to the grotto, helping in the kitchen feed the sick and the reward of assisting them in moving around was almost like a prayer to my husband and myself. (will continue speaking of these after we down load more photos). thank you.

    Thank you for your beautiful stories about Lourdes. I visited to Lourdes ten years ago, and it was a life changing experience. Could you please tell me how to go about doing volunteer work there? Where should we register; or can we just walk in on the day?
