Prayers of Saint Bernadette
to use during our pilgrimage






In Lourdes
You experienced the joys and trials of family life
You saw Mary eighteen times at the rock
You called the sinners to penance
The priests to edify the Church of God
The pilgrims to come in procession
You reported the name of Mary, the Immaculate Conception,
You desired ardently to receive the Body of the Lord, and to live of it
You knew shame and suspicion, mockery and humiliation
You bore witness to what you saw and believed with such determination
You answered the call of the Lord.

With you Bernadette, WE
go to the Grotto,
To contemplate Mary, full of grace,
To hear her say 'Do whatever he tells you'.
With you Bernadette, WE reply I promise, I will.
Saint Bernadette teach us to receive the good news.

With you Bernadette, WE wish to hear the call of penance,
To walk in the path of conversion, To live in humility.

With you Bernadette, WE take up our Cross,
We say 'Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners'.

With you Bernadette, WE go and wash at the springs of mercy.

With you Bernadette, WE say Yes to the will of God, by becoming
servants of the little ones, the poor and the sick.

With you Bernadette, WE look on the other as a person.
Saint Bernadette, teach us to love and to serve.

With you Bernadette, WE go to meet the Lord in the Eucharist.
WE go to drink at the Spring of the Living Water of the Word of God.

WE go in procession, together as a Church in the footsteps of Christ.

With you Bernadette, WE shall go and repeat the Name of the Lady
to the World, 'I am the Immaculate Conception'.

Saint Bernadette, teach us to pray to Mary each day,
Mother of God and our Mother: 'Hail Mary, full of Grace'.

O Mary conceived without sin
Pray for us who have recourse to you.
Our Lady of Lourdes
Pray for us.
Saint Bernadette
Pray for us.
