Spiritual Talk – Fr Ho talks about Apparition of Mary at Lourdes, France (2)

In total, there were 18 apparitions at Lourdes in 1858. On February 21, as more than a hundred people gathered, Bernadette saw the Virgin Mary look over her head and tell her to pray for sinners. But on seeing Mary’s beautiful face, she felt assured. Three days later, Bernadette tearfully recounted Mary’s words, “Repent, repent, repent!” From now on, she was to make reparation for sinners by walking to the grotto on her knees and kissing the ground. On February 25, Mary said, “Go, draw water from the spring. Drink and wash.” After some digging, some water came forth from the left side of the grotto. Onlookers began to mock her, but to this day, the same spring delivers 32,000 gallons of water to the local river. This water had healing properties. On March 1, Catherine, a 9-months pregnant woman walked 9 kilometres to Lourdes. After immersing her lame arm, she was healed and on returning home, gave birth shortly afterward. The next day, Mary told Bernadette to tell the local priest to build a chapel at the grotto. The priest told Bernadette to ask for the name of the woman in the visions. On March 3, Mary merely responded by smiling. The priest told Bernadette, “If she wants the chapel built, she must reveal her name and make roses bloom at the grotto.” But the next day, Mary once more responded by smiling and nodding. Today, Lourdes is a major destination for pilgrims to pray the Rosary for the reparation of sinners and immerse themselves in the holy waters for healing.

Spiritual Talk – Fr Ho talks about Apparition of Mary at Lourdes, France

The Lourdes apparitions are the most famous of the 18th-century Marian apparitions. On February 11, 1858, Bernadette, her sister, and a friend were out collecting wood and, hearing the sound of wind, she saw a beautiful woman in a nearby grotto. She was clothed in white, with a veil on her head, a blue sash on her hips, yellow roses on her feet, and a gold-and-white Rosary in her hands. Bernadette attempted to make the sign of the cross, but was immobilized, and only when Mary made the Sign of the Cross could Bernadette do so. Bernadette began to pray the Rosary, Mary silently counted with her and disappeared. Bernadette realized that the other girls had not seen the vision and told them to keep it secret. But her sister told their mother, who was convinced she was dreaming. On February 14, Bernadette returned to the cave with locals, who cast holy water and prayed the Rosary, thinking the apparition demonic in origin. When Mary appeared, Bernadette said, “If you come from God, please approach us.” The holy water touched her foot, and Mary walked forward, prayed a Rosary, and disappeared. The day after Ash Wednesday, February 18, a woman and a nun accompanied Bernadette to the grotto. The three of them prayed the Rosary and lit a holy candle. When Mary appeared, Bernadette asked her to write her name. Mary said there was no need and told her to come every fourteen days: “I will not promise you happiness in this life, but happiness in the next.” On February 20, Mary taught Bernadette a private prayer, the content of which has never been revealed. The day after, Mary asked Bernadette to pray for sinners.
