Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes,World Day of Prayer for the Sick

Today is the 150th anniversary of the first apparition at Lourdes (see below for earlier link regarding this special jubilee). It's also the World Day of Prayer for the Sick, and we remember in our prayers today all those who carry the cross of illness in their lives. May they find strength and hope in the Savior, uniting their sufferings to those of Christ for the redemption of the world.
If you get a chance today, you may want to visit online the official Lourdes site (English page). http://www.lourdes2008.com/en/missions/mission_01_06.html

There are even live webcams of the grotto and basilica!
