Springs of Living Water

I can't let this weekend pass without any reference to the wonder of Lourdes, the tender care of the Lord's Mother for the sick and suffering who call upon her intercession, and for that spectacular humble girl of France who in the year 1858 was given the courage to be a prophet before all the world.

Bernadette Soubirous was willing to be regarded as a fool, then to be misunderstood, ridiculed, and to bear physical pain and the soul's aching thirst for God so that she might participate in a great sign for our own times of the Springs of Living Water.
