What is prayer? Fr. Elias Mary Mills explains on the memorial of the 3rd Apparition of Our Lady of Lourdes. Unite in prayer of the Rosary.

ST. BERNADETTE1

Le Sanctuaire Notre-Dame de Lourdes en direct.


“Ensinai-me, Senhor, o vosso caminho para que eu ande na vossa presença.”


O Saint Bernadette,
pure and simple child,
you who were privileged to
behold the beauty of
Mary Immaculate and to be
the recipient of her
confidence eighteen
times at Lourdes;
you who did desire from then
on to hide yourself in the
cloister of Nevers and there live
and die as a victim for sinners, please
obtain for us that spirit of purity,
which will lead us also
to the glorious vision of God
and of Mary in Heaven.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
Amen. Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us!

THE ROSARY HOUR PODCAST NEWSLETTER | 18 February | EVENING POST (PST)

PACIFIC STANDARD TIME ON THE MEMORIAL OF THE THIRD APPARITION OF OUR LADY AT LOURDES

TRANSCRIPT: CHILDREN’S ROSARY Q and A continues with Fr. Elias (FI)

FR. ELIAS MARY MILLS REFLECTS ON PRAYER & THE POWER OF THE ROSARY


According to the official sanctuary website at Lourdes:

On 18th February 18, at 6 a.m., Bernadette had brought a pen, paper and ink with her. The Lady spoke for the first time:

What I have to say to you, does not have to be written down, but will you do me the honour of coming here for fifteen days?

The Apparition added these words for Bernadette: I do not promise to make you happy in this world, but in the other.

How can we be like St. Bernadette and “first to live the message” as she was instructed by her confessor, Father Douce? After she became sick, she tried to do “her job”, to embrace “all her crosses in an act of perfect love for sinners”. “Saint Bernadette died in Nevers on 16th April 1879, at the age of 35. The Church proclaimed her a saint on 8th December 1933, not for having been graced with the apparitions, but for the way in which she responded to them.”

We invite you to watch the mass at Lourdes in France each day at 10h00.

He ascended into Heaven, and is seated

LEADER 1: The 1st Sorrowful Mystery: The Agony in the Garden

"Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, 'Sit here, while I go yonder and pray.' And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, 'My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.' And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, 'My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will"' (Mt 26:36-39).

We offer Thee, O Lord Jesus, this decade in honor of Thy mortal Agony in the Garden of Olives and we ask of Thee, through this mystery and through the intercession of Thy Blessed Mother, perfect contrition for our sins and the virtue of perfect obedience to Thy Holy Will. (Composed by St. Louis Marie de Montfort, “The Secret of the Rosary”)

And, in the warmth of your lap, make us look with a meek and humble heart at those around us, so that we can be and live as your true children.

Amen.
