I invite you to personally experience the miraculous healing power of Lourdes. Send me your Lourdes prayer petitions by September 22 to be included in our special celebration of faith. Your petitions will be joined with thousands of others during two special Mass Novenas celebrated September 29 through October 7 at the Sacred Grotto in Lourdes, France and at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows here in Belleville, Illinois.
While you pray, you can be reminded of Our Lady of Lourdes and her loving intercession with one or more of our Lourdes devotional gifts.
I will also send you a FREE bottle of Lourdes water to show my appreciation for your donation of $5, $10, $15 or whatever you can afford.
Through her healing intercession, Our Lady of Lourdes shows her love and compassion to those in need. I hope you will follow her loving example. Your gift will support the healing ministries of the Missionary Oblates with the poor and suffering people in our missions.
Join me on the journey that has given hope to millions - the path of Our Lady of Lourdes. Please know my fellow Oblates and I will keep you in our prayers.
In Jesus Christ and Mary Immaculate,
Fr. John Madigan, O.M.I.
Oblate Chaplain Director
P.S. You may have a Lourdes Healing Candle lit at the Lourdes Grotto - the site of the miraculous apparitions of Our Lady in France! Or you may choose to have a Healing Candle lit at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois.
