310- The Constant Procession: Part 10

The tenth installment from my book, The Constant Procession. The Virgin Mary’s apparitions with Bernadette Soubirous at ‘Our Lady of Lourdes” in France, took place in the year 1858. Also in this installment is her appearance in the Ukraine, just before the start of WWI.

Also, Pray for the People of Ukraine. There are links below on ways to support them.

A quote from the CNA article: “The Chapels of Light are one of the quietest places for recollection, next to the grotto of the apparitions.”

After my experience at the baths, as I dried off, I found myself sitting on a bench at this very spot.

To experience the baths at this apparition site in Lourdes is intense and at the same time extremely humbling.

There are candles everywhere at this chapel area. It was a most remarkable experience.
