As many of you will be aware in Lourdes there are two processions each day in Lourdes. The Blessed Sacrament Procession in the afternoon and the Torchligh Procession in the Evening. In this post we see some of our many young people at the Procession and helping to carry the statue of Our Lady.
The Processions are a wonderful way of bringing all the people who are in Lourdes at that time together to journey together as people professing one faith. The Marian Procession in the evening begins with everyone singing the Creed and then meditating on the mysteries of the rosary as they walk in procession behind the statue of Our Lady and raising their candles to Her honour at the Ave, ave, ave Maria.
