Excerpt from the book:
“Lourdes is like a field hospital, where the injured and the weary come to have their wounds washed and attended to and lives saved; where they come to encounter compassion and love through the mercy of God after a phase of immense pain, uncertainty, near misses and anxiety as in battle. Here they come to seek temporary refuge and rest so they can resume their journey towards safety, comfort and peace... through entrustment to and the intercession of Our Blessed Mother who points the way for us to the bosom of her Son Our Lord Jesus Christ…”
A varied selection of testimonies by pilgrims is also included in the book.
