In Lourdes, Our Lady Lets Us Know We Are Whole
Caroff, Maria
Exceptional Parent, v38 n6 p45-51 Jun 2008
There are places of pilgrimage around the world, for people of all faiths. Lourdes, France is one of those holy places. Since its birth--sprung from the faith and the holy selection of a simple child--it has been a destination for people seeking healing, comfort, and peace. It is here that Bernadette Soubirous, a poor and sick young girl, saw the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary 18 times. In this article, the author recounts some of the highlights of her journey for the first time to Lourdes, France, with the American Special Children's Pilgrimage Group (ASCPG) during its annual Easter Week pilgrimage with children and young adults who have disabilities.
