Lourdes (St. Bernadette) · Paris

Lourdes is located in the picturesque Pyrenees Mountains in southwestern France. In 1858 St. Bernadette witnessed eighteen apparitions of Our Lady at the Mazzabielle Grotto in Lourdes, who revealed herself as the "Immaculate Conception". In one of these miracles, Our Lady asked Bernadette to drink from the spring as an act of penance which resulted in the spring's muddy water turning clear. Since then, Pilgrims have been visiting the beautiful Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes seeking healing and conversion from the Lourdes baths. Almost every part of the Shrine is accessible by wheelchair. Lourdes is a special place of grace and peace visited by millions each year where Pilgrims attend Mass, go to Confession, and Pray the Rosary in nightly candlelight processions.

Itinerary

Day 1, Sat, Jul 16: Newark to France

Depart Newark for your overnight flight to France. Dinner and breakfast will be served on board.

Day 2, Sun, Jul 17 : Arrive Lourdes

Upon arriving at Pau (or Toulouse) airport, make your way to the baggage claim area and collect your luggage. Proceed to the arrival's hall, where you will be greeted by your tour guide and/or driver. Embark on scenic drive to Lourdes. Check-in to your hotel where at late lunch will be waiting. Relax or explore before dinner. Following dinner, you will have free time to observe the candlelight procession. These processions are lit by candlelight and guided by the Most Holy Rosary. Following this prayerful experience, you will return to your hotel for an overnight.

Day 3 - 7, Mon - Fri, Jul 18 - 22: Lourdes

This pilgrimage was designed for those who would like to spend time in Lourdes. The first few days will include walking tours of Lourdes with your group, spiritual director and tour guide. The last days will be dedicated to private time for your own personal reflection and prayer. During your trip you will have an opportunity to: Attend Mass at the Grotto, watch a video presentation telling the story of Lourdes, and walk in the footsteps of St. Bernadette. Visit the Boly Mill where St. Bernadette was born, and the "Cachot," an abandoned prison where Bernadette's impoverished family lived. Join your prayers with those of pilgrims from around the world as you pray for your intentions, drink water from the miraculous spring or submerge yourself in the healing baths. Experience Christ's love as you walk the life-sized Stations of the Cross overlooking the Holy Grotto. Kneel in the chapel built on the very rock of the Grotto, in obedience to the request of the "Immaculate Conception." Most evenings are free for optional Blessed Sacrament Procession, also known as the Blessing of the Sick.

Day 8, Sat, Jul 23: Lourdes - Paris

Early breakfast, followed by transfer to Lourdes Airport for your flight to Paris. You will visit and/or celebrate Mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, where you will view the incorrupt body of St. Catherine Laboure. The Saint's guardian angel led her to the chapel, where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to her. During apparitions, Our Lady repeatedly instructed the making and purpose of the Miraculous Medal, as well as the green scapular. According to the Blessed Virgin Mary, those who wear the Miraculous Medal and scapular will receive special protection and abundant graces. After Mass, we will walk to Saint Vincent de Paul Church. Enjoy the panoramic sightseeing tour, via motor coach and view the most recognizable symbol of the city of Paris, the Eiffel Tower. Historically, the Tower's original intent was to commemorate the centenary of the French Revolution, but, later assisted in advancements in meteorology, telegraphy during World War I, radio, and television. Pass by Invalides, the L'Arch de Triomphe, a monument that symbolizes gratitude for those who fought for France. This monument stands at the West end of the Champ-Elysees, one of the world's most famous boulevards. We will make a stop at La Madeleine, with the statue of Mary Magdalene carried to heaven by angels. Due to the tragic fire at Notre Dame Cathedral on April 15, 2019, Pilgrims will not be able to enter the Cathedral for the near future. Pilgrims will still have the opportunity to view the Cathedral from outside, and we expect the sacred relics to be on display in a nearby church or museum. Your fun-filled, busy day ends with a lovely dinner and a very comfortable overnight at Paris Hotel.

Day 9, Sun, Jul 24: Paris - Newark

Following breakfast, transfer to Paris airport for your return flight to Newark.

About Lourdes:

She came for you and for everyone of us! 6 million pilgrims come to Lourdes each year and 10,000 visit this site daily. At the foot of the Pyrenees mountains in southwestern France, nestled between the spectacular mountain river, Gave de Pau, is Lourdes, one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the World. Lourdes is the birthplace of St Bernadette to whom Our Lady appeared in 1858 near the Grotto of Massabielle. Our pilgrimage and tour of Lourdes includes visits to the sanctuary and the Basilica of St Pius X, the world's largest underground Church. Drink from the spring that the Virgin directed Bernadette to locate at the base of the Grotto, which has flowed uninterrupted since 1858. Wash yourself in the baths where hundreds of miraculous cures have taken place. Contemplate Christ's Passion as you pray the unique three-dimensional Stations of the Cross. Attend the blessing of the sick, and participate in nightly candlelight processions requested by Our Lady. Daily Mass, and Mass at the Grotto on Sunday will be followed by a video presentation telling the miraculous story of Lourdes. Visit Lourdes and experience a spiritual journey from which many have claimed healing and conversion.

About Paris:

Visit Paris and all its wonderful sights like Notre Dame Cathedral and Sacre Coeur, see the sights as the Eiffel Tower, L'Arc de Triomphe, and drive through the Champs Elysees. Mass at Shrine of the Miraculous Medal.
