Lourdes in Autumn with View of the Rosary Basilica
Crisp autumn air in Lourdes! Exiting the chapel after morning Mass, this was the view.
It was a great honor to be in Lourdes for the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, the patronal feast of the old Basilica (named Notre Dame du Rosaire de Lourdes). I usually find myself in Lourdes during the month of May, which can sometimes by a bit rainy.
Autumn is a lovely time to visit. Every Catholic ought to visit Lourdes. Bishop Sheen never made a visit to Europe without making a stop in Lourdes. That was well over 30 visits!
