Lourdes Diary free pdf A charming and touching story that reminds us, with St. Bernadette, that grace is everywhere. Robert Ellsberg, author, "Blessed Among All Women"The shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in southern France appeals to Catholics as few other places do. The famous grotto is a place of healing that attracts some six million pilgrims to Lourdes each year.One of these recent pilgrims was James Martin, an American Jesuit. Fr. Martin went to Lourdes to serve as chaplain for a group of pilgrims sponsored by the Order of Malta, an international Catholic association devoted to charitable works. During his stay, Martin kept an illuminating diary of his trip. His touching and humorous account of the busy and gratifying days that he spent at Lourdes is a vivid description of a place filled with a powerful spiritual presence. Lourdes is now one of those places where I have met God in a special way, Martin writes. Through this diary, we are able to share in his journey and feel the presence of God that he encountered there."
