Our Lady of Lourdes


The 11th of February is the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes. She is the patron saint of Lourdes, France, Quezon City of Metro Manila, Tagaytay City of Cavite, Barangay Granada of Bacolod City, Daegu, South Korea, Tennessee, Diocese of Lancaster, bodily ills, sick people, and protection from diseases.

Our Lady appeared to Bernadette Soubiroux on 11th February 1858 in Massabielle, southern France. Bernadette reported seeing 18 apparitions of the Woman Whom she described to be as “lovelier than I have ever seen” that year. The Woman in the apparition called Herself the “Immaculate Conception,” confirming the dogma which was defined by the Pope in the four years previously. Our Lady asked Bernadette to drink from a fountain at the grotto and a chapel to be built on the spot. Bernadette scratched at the dirt where a stream of pure water came forth and drank from it. The water prove to have healing properties, drawing pilgrims to the grotto worldwide. A basillica was eventually built in Massabielle, and was consecrated as the “Church of the Rosary” in 1876.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

May 02, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, all that my Son, who is the light of love, has done and does, He has done out of love. Also you, my children, when you live in love and love your neighbors, you are doing the will of my Son. Apostles of my love, make yourselves little; open your pure hearts to my Son so that He can work through you. With the help of faith, be filled with love. But, my children, do not forget that the Eucharist is the heart of faith. This is my Son who feeds you with His Body and strengthens you with His Blood. This is a miracle of love: my Son who always comes anew, alive, to bring life back to souls. My children, by living in love you are doing the will of my Son and He lives in you. My children, my motherly desire is for you to always love Him more, because He is calling you with His love. He is giving you love so that you may spread it to all those around you. As a mother, through His love, I am with you to speak the words of love and hope to you - to speak to you the eternal words that are victorious over time and death - so as to call you to be my apostles of love. Thank you.
