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.

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).

Father’s guided tour

SATX-84

After lunch, Steven drove us around San Antonio.  Since Father Sheehan has a sweet tooth and I wanted some ice cream, we finally found a Dairy Queen before returning to the Oblate Madonna Residence on Blanco Road.

The afternoon had turned frigid, and Steven was the only one with a warm jacket; but that didn’t keep Father from asking, “Would you like a tour of the place?”

“Like, oh, my gosh!  Do you even need to ask?!” I squealed.  “Yes!  Please!

And off we went.
