Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes

Today, February 11th, is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes

(Via EWTN.)

It is a day deeply connected with healing, as the waters in the grotto at Lourdes, France, has been the site of many healings of an unexplained, and therefore probably miraculous, nature. The EWTN link above has more information.

I have in the past had run a Novena but didn’t do that this year. If you click on this: Our Lady of Lourdes Search Results in Sober Catholic you will find a list of the blogposts with the nine days of prayer. Although novenas are typically started before the Feast day, there is no reason why you cannot start it on the day of the Feast.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
