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.
Except for The Story of Our Lady of Lourdes from Food for the Poor, Inc., 6401 Lyons Road Coconut Creek, Florida 33073-3603, the novena leaflets and the prayer card are from Franciscan Mission Associates, P.O. Box 598, Mount Vernon, NY 10551-0598.

Our Lady of Lourdes has a message for everyone. Be men and women of freedom! (Blessed John Paul II).

“The message of the Madonna, which continued to spread from Lourdes, recalled the words of Jesus which he announced at the beginning of his public ministry: Convert and believe in the gospel, pray, and do penance” (Pope Benedict XVI).
