Lourdes (St. Bernadette) · Nevers · Paris


Lourdes (St. Bernadette) · Nevers · 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.

Today, you will enjoy breakfast before departing for Pau or Lourdes airport for your short flight to Paris. Upon arrival in Paris, depart for Nevers by way of the picturesque Loire Valley to view the incorrupt body of St. Bernadette. After taking the veil in 1867, St. Bernadette lived for 12 years as a member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Nevers. At least three times during her short lifetime, she received the last Sacraments. In addition to asthma, she was gradually struck by other illnesses, among which were tuberculosis of the lung and a tubercular tumor in her right knee. St. Bernadette eventually died at the age of 35. St. Bernadette's incorrupt body at the Convent of St. Gildard, is miraculously preserved since her death in 1879. We will enjoy lunch at the Convent.

The Blessed Mother appeared to St. Catherine on July 18, 1830 , telling her, “My child, the good God wished to charge you with a mission… Have a medal struck after this model. All who wear it will receive great graces… Graces will abound for those who wear it with confidence.” The devotion to the miraculous medal spread rapidly and is still strong today. Finally, visit Sacre Couer Cathedral for stunning views of the city of Paris below. Enjoy dinner at the hotel and free time in the evening and overnight.

Attend the blessing of the sick, and participate in nightly candlelight processions requested by Our Lady.
