o17kbi-lourdes-water-bottleDear Friend in Christ,

Almost 158 years ago, Our Blessed Mother appeared to St. Bernadette in a grotto near Lourdes, France. Within months of her first appearance, miraculous instances of healing began to occur.

So you, too, can also experience healing in your life, I would be pleased to send you a bottle of water drawn from that miraculous spring that was revealed at Our Lady’s direction… along with remembrance at two Novenas of Masses.

Starting on February 11 – the day that Our Lady first appeared to St. Bernadette – the first Novena will begin at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Lourdes, France, on the morning of February 11.

A few hours later, a second Healing Novena will begin at Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and Tepeyac de San Antonio, the spiritual home of the Missionary Oblates. Both Novenas will continue for nine consecutive days under the gaze of Our Lady.

I hope that my gift of prayer and the water drawn from Lourdes will inspire you to assist our work with an offering. Your gift will help our missionaries bring the Word of Our Lord to the poorest of the poor in our missions.

While I await your response, I will pray that the power of our Blessed Mother’s intercession will protect you and your family.

Fr. Art Flores
In Christ and Mary Immaculate,

Oblate Director


P.S.  Please submit your prayer requests as soon as possible to ensure they will be remembered at Lourdes beginning February 11. May God bless you and keep you well.
