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!
