St Bernadette, Lourdes and putting love into action

"As the relics of Saint Bernadette begin their tour around England, Scotland and Wales, Catherine from our Theology team reminisces about her own experiences on pilgrimage to Lourdes.

When I was 18, I went to Lourdes for the first time. My grandparents had been going for years. And they had always said that I should try it when I was old enough to be a helper.

My grandad talked about what an amazing spiritual place it was, the processions and the Masses. My grandma, who perhaps understood my interests at the time a little better, emphasised the social element of it. She told me how the young people always seemed to be having so much fun around their caring duties."
