Apparitions of Lourdes are Timeless . . .

“Like our Predecessor, we ardently desire that Christendom be renewed in a unanimous élan of Marian piety, for, when it is understood according to the Church’s doctrine, it cannot but lead souls more surely and more quickly to Jesus Christ, our one and divine Savior. Following those Pontiffs who for a century recommended that Catholics pay attention to the message of Lourdes, we urge you to listen, with simplicity of heart and an upright mind, to hear the salutary warnings of the Mother of God – warnings still relevant today. […] Moreover, let nobody be surprised to hear the Roman Pontiffs insist on this great spiritual lesson passed on by the child of Massabielle. If they have been constituted guardians and interpreters of Divine Revelation, contained in Sacred Scripture and Tradition, they also have a duty to recommend to the attention of the faithful – when after mature examination they judge it opportune for the general good – the supernatural lights which it pleases God to freely dispense to certain privileged souls, not to propose new doctrines but to guide our conduct (cf. Saint Thomas, IIa-IIae, q. CLXXIV, a. 6, ad tertium.) Such is indeed the case with the apparitions of Lourdes…” (Pope John XXIII radio address, Feb 18, 1959, at the closing of the Centennial of Lourdes).

 

“Penance! Penance! Penance! Pray to God for sinners! Kiss the ground as an act of penance for sinners”—Our Lady of Lourdes.

 

“In our time,—as Christians have often had, and still have the opportunity to experience,—the august Mother of God makes Her presence felt in human events in a special way [e.g., apparitions like Our Lady of the Snows, Lourdes and Fatima]. The more charity grows colder, the more urgently this Mother exhorts Her children to piety, to virtue, to penance for sin; and when from every side the menace of fearsome scourges increases, we feel that in Her clemency She intercedes for us, that She implores for us mercy, warding off the chastisements merited by our faults. Thus we have a powerful patroness with the Divine Majesty, we have a Mother who with a heart full of pity has compassion on Her children’s sufferings. Hence, one would be placing his own salvation in jeopardy if, when he is assailed by the tempests of our world, he refused to accept Her helping hand.” (Pope John XXIII radio address, April 1959, a few months prior to his opening the 3rd Secret of Fatima).

Help us build a Grotto for Our Lady... A cave of refreshment in dark times.

Our Lady of Lourdes needs a Niche in the Wall

Due to the generosity of many benefactors, we have purchased (the mortgage for the church building was retired on Feb 9) and  refurbished a beautiful church under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes. Although there are still many things to be done in the church (e.g., restoring most of the stained glass windows, restoring the bell tower and bells, and refurbishing the kitchen), we now need to build the Blessed Mother of God a special cave or grotto that will call to mind that sacred apparition site in Lourdes, France. For how can one have a church dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes without a Grotto? What a blessing it would be for future parishioners and passersby if they could pray not only in our chapel before the Tabernacle, but also visit an outdoor shrine with a niche for Our Lady... a sort of tabernacle on earth for the Blessed Mother. Thus, we have initiated the first phase of a new capital campaign to serve three ends: building the Grotto, to help us finish the work in the church as well as pay off and develop our new property (at 1111-1113 Amsterdam Road) to improve parking and provide additional housing for the Missionaries. If you want your donation to be used for the Grotto only, please indicate that along with the donation (e.g., writing "Grotto" in the memo line). Help Us Give Honor to the Highest Honor of Our Race.
