Lourdes novenas

OST122314-38        OST122311-43

Yesterday I received another novena in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes.  Since I’d long intended to post the prayers, I compared the new leaflet to those I already had and— joyful surprise— each one is different.

  1. Lovely Ning, you’re so wonderful!!! How did you know I’ve been thinking and thinking about you all?

    Steven told me early in the week that you and Sam had been to the Lourdes grotto in San Antonio, too.

    We had a glorious time with Father Sheehan and thoroughly enjoyed his tour of the grounds and the facility. It was so special that I can’t stop thinking about it, hence the five related posts this week.

    A lot of memories. A lot of writing. The ol’ pea brain’s got too much information in it already that for sure my head would’ve fallen on its side had I not gotten some of it out. LOL.

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment! You know it means a lot!

  2. Happy New Year!!! Thanks for all that you do, sweet Deli.
