150 Years Ago; Forever Lourdes

150 Years Ago...
Bernadette de Soubiroux
was blessed enough 
to be granted 
an august audience 
with the Holy Virgin Lady 
in Lourdes, France... 
Her "spiritual sisters" 
such as her venerable
fellow French countryfolk,
Thérèse de Lisieux, 
(seen in the composite picture above, 
at Bernadette's left) 
and so many others
like these two
are truly in a class
all their own.
The third one of note,
and most modern of the three,
is Lucia Dos Santos
from Fatima, Portugal.
She was granted numerous
audiences with the Luminous Lady,
Mother of Our Saviour,
starting in 1917.
She only passed away in 2003.
Of all the messages that she received,
the most urgent and most pressing
is still so very actual today;
to convert RUSSIA.
Many were those who thought it
out of whack with world events now -
yet, with recent activity,
the European Union's criticism
and American ingerence in
Russian policies
concerning Georgia most notably
- with the prospect of another
COLD WAR looming...
The Fatima urging is VERY actual
Lourdes deserves to be celebrated
in this 150th anniversary
And the current pope, 
Benedict XVI,  
delivered a beautiful message 
while in Lourdes and Paris 
for this occasion: 
one that told of the 
supreme liberty 
found in the 
absolute dignity 
of purity. 
Bernadette is a great example 
of just that. 
So is Thérèse. 
And so is Lucia. 
So are a great many other 
"spiritual sisters" 
of lesser renown, too; 
they may have not been 
privy to communicating 
with the Holy Mother 
or with Our Redeemer 
Himself - but they are 
without a shadow of a doubt 
purity incarnated 
in our less-than-perfect
sinful world...  

There are countless more like these -
and all are spiritual sisters of great worth
and above average merit
in the Eyes of Our Lord.
As we recognize Bernadette, once again,
let us have a thought for all the rest too -
including those next-to-no-one 
has ever heard of, 
such as those I make mention of 
here and elsewhere...

  • Take the quiz:
    What type of Christian are you?

    You are a true Roman Catholic.
    You love your religion.
    You go by the Catechism, verbatum.
    You pray to God and the Saints.
    You believe in prayer for the dead and you believe Jesus is always present to you in the Holy Eucharist.
    You follow your beloved Pope and you try to do the best you can on your pilgrimage on this earth!

    Quizzes by -- the World's Biggest Yearbook!

    Another quiz that assumes too much; though a million times better than the earlier quiz, located on the sidebar...
    Not all catholics are exactly like this description above;
    several, like me, don't pray for the dead but rather think that the dead are indeed better off and thus in a far better position to pray (or intercede) FOR US!
    Likewise, we don't go by the Catechism - we go by The Word and that is THE HOLY BIBLE.
    Also, we have respect for the Pope, but that is about it...
    Jesus is the Beloved One and the Redeemer - not any pope!
    We follow Him -JESUS- not just anyone in frocks!
    The quiz maker this time got it absolutely right on one point though: Jesus sure is always present in the wonderful mystery of the Holy Eucharist ~ Amen!

    The video for the track "God Is God" is based on the film 'The Color Of Pomegranates' (1969) directed by Sergei Paradzhanov.
