All about: Lourdes - Easter 2018

Rev. Fr. Joseph Whisstock and his parishioners from Westcliff-on-Sea extend a warm welcome to all pilgrims seeking to join their pilgrimage to Lourdes.

Lourdes, this small picturesque town located in the foothills of the French Pyrenees would have remained indifferent to any other town in this region had it not been for the remarkable events which occurred in 1858. During that year from the 11 February – 16 July, a young peasant girl named Bernadette Soubirous, witnessed a total of 18 apparitions of the Blessed Virgin at a cave known locally as Massabielle.

On the 25th March 1858, the day of the sixteenth Apparition, Bernadette went to the Grotto and on the instruction of the Parish Priest, asked the Lady for her name. Three times Bernadette asked the question. On the fourth request, the Lady responded in regional dialect "Que soy era Immaculada Conceptiou" ("I am the Immaculate Conception").

The message of Lourdes was Penance, Prayer for the conversion of sinners and Procession (Pilgrimage). During the thirteenth apparition, Our Lady said to Bernadette "Go tell the priests to come here in procession and build a chapel here". And so, annually, millions of pilgrims from all corners of the world come to visit this simple Grotto.
