Grace
Grace is the free and undeserved help that God gives us to respond to His call to become His children. We begin at Lourdes where Our Blessed Mother participated in God's will by giving us the "healing water" through St. Bernadette Soubirous, continuing to Paris where She gave us the "Miraculous Medal" through St. Catherine Laboure. The Chapel in Paris shows a statue of the Virgin Mary with rays falling from Her hands which represent the graces that She showers on those who ask for them.

"Come to the foot of the altar. There, graces will be shed upon all, great and small, who ask for them." - These are the words of Our Blessed Mother to St. Catherine Laboure.
Lourdes, Paris and Nevers
6 Days - France
Itinerary
Day 1: Depart the USA on an international flight to Lourdes, France. Meals will be served on the overnight flight.
Day 2: Our Tour Director welcomes us with a beautiful smile and escorts us to Lourdes, one of the greatest pilgrimage shrines in the world. It was here at the Grotto of Massabielle, in February 1858, that Our Blessed Mother appeared 18 times to a young sickly child named Bernadette Soubirous and later proclaimed to her that She was the Immaculate Conception. Dinner and overnight in Lourdes.
Day 3: After breakfast, we celebrate Mass and then participate in the walking tour of Lourdes where we visit the places associated with the life of St. Bernadette. These places include the Boly Mill where she was born, the Locale Mill, residence of her parents, and the Cachot, formerly used as a jail where the Soubirous family lived at the time of the Apparitions. The afternoon may be spent for private devotion at the Way of the Cross, with its life-size statues on the hill, Eucharistic Adoration, confession or take part in the Miraculous Baths to experience the message of Our Lady. After dinner, participate in the Candlelight Procession or simply spend some more private time at the "Grotto". Dinner and overnight in Lourdes.
Day 4: Fly to Paris where we will be met by our local Tour Director upon arrival. Enjoy a panoramic sightseeing city tour of Paris which includes the Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees Avenue with the Arc de Triomphe, and a visit of the Notre Dame Cathedral, culminating with Mass at the Miraculous Medal Chapel, where the incorrupt body of
St. Catherine Labouré is kept. It was in 1830 that Our Blessed Mother appeared to her three times giving her
the mission of having a medal struck and distributed,
later known as the Miraculous Medal. Then in 1840, Our Blessed Mother appeared again, this time to Justine Bisqueyburu with the gift of the Green Scapular. Dinner and overnight in Paris.
Day 5: Today, we travel to Nevers to view the incorrupt body of St. Bernadette. She arrived in 1866 at St. Gildard, the house of the Sisters of Charity at Nevers on July 7, 1866. She had previously met the sisters at the hospice at Lourdes. She stayed with the sisters at Nevers for 13 years as Sr. Marie Bernard, dying in April, 1879. Dinner and overnight in Paris.
Day 6: We bid France "Au Revoir" as we board our flight back to the USA, arriving later that day.
