Lessons from Lourdes

At Lourdes, as in many apparition spots, the Blessed Virgin Mary asked for a chapel to be built. Why? Mary always leads us to her son, Jesus. A chapel is where we encounter Him at Mass! On our birthday we had the blessing of offering Mass in the original Lourdes chapel. St. Bernadette herself prayed in this chapel before she left Lourdes for the convent.
