Peace demands a mentality and a spirit which, before turning to others, must first permeate him who wishes to bring peace. Peace is first and foremost personal before it is social. (Pope Paul VI)
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.
