Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Here mentioned, famous site of Mary's apparition-- the small town of Lourdes-- attracts thousands of pilgrims each year; among them, of course, are many cure-seekers.
Fortunately, not all of them are focused on their physical well-being while making their way to above-mentioned, well-known Pyrenean sanctuary. Some people want above all the everlasting health for themselves and for their neighbours. And only these are really wise.
For water from Lourdes' spring will help no one unless it is mixed with Water from the Spring of Mercy and Faith that flowed out of Jesus' Heart about 2000 years ago.
Moreover, unless we drink from the latter Spring, there will be no use of our health, plans or hopes.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray that we all -- people affected by spiritual, mental and physical disabilities-- may be cured in the most perfect manner. Cured to live forever for your Son, not for our worldly dreams.
