A holy Christian life is made up of a number of small things: Little words, not eloquent sermons; Little deeds, not miracles of battle or one great, heroic deed of martyrdom; The little constant sunbeam, not the lightning. (Andrew Bonard)
Prayer and worship are intrinsic to the Christian life and animate the efforts and work of Sanctuaire Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes. By the great gift of God’s grace, Our Lady’s humble Sanctuary was born of prayer, continues to be sustained by prayer and so fulfills its mission as a place of prayer. For 145 years, people have been visiting Our Lady’s Sanctuary and been touched by the spirit of prayer.
