Join the Motherwell Diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes

Lourdes Theme for 2018 - "Do whatever He tells you"

”Do whatever He tells you”

These are the words of Mary at the Wedding Feast of Cana. When the wine had all run out, they asked Mary to intercede with her Son to solve the crisis. These words are also the theme for Lourdes 2018. Every year the Sanctuary of Lourdes chooses a theme to lead us into a greater understanding of the place of Mary in the life of her Son, in the life of the Church and in your life. Just like the young couple at the wedding feast perhaps we too have experienced the well running dry on our journey of faith.

Motherwell Diocese, led by Bishop Toal invites you to join our diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes from the 20th-27th July next year. The place where Our Lady appeared to St Bernadette offers hope for all who are searching for an answer to the difficulties and obstacles that hit us in life. St Bernadette herself is a clear sign of the grace of God breaking into our world, into our lives, since she had her own personal and family problems from poverty to illness which she had to overcome; she did so with the help of our Lord working through His Mother.

Our diocesan pilgrimage is an opportunity for you to make that sometimes difficult journey of faith, not alone, but with fellow pilgrims who will accompany you, support you, console you and inspire you. By travelling to Lourdes we will all be reminded that we are part of the Church in our diocese and also the Catholic Church represented at the Sanctuary by so many nations.

Come and join us, Motherwell Diocese, next year and let’s ask Mary to intercede with her Son Jesus. Do whatever he tells you so that you may trust completely in whatever he is asking of you in your life and so that we may all enjoy an abundance of His blessings that will never be exhausted.
