Проповеди Иоанна Павла II
Vigil of the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes
VIGIL OF THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF LOURDES
HOMILY OF HIS HOLINESS JOHN PAUL II
Today I would like to be in spirit in that corner of France where, for a hundred and twenty-one years, these words have been murmured incessantly by the lips of thousands, of millions, of men and women since the day when, precisely in this place, they were uttered by a child full of amazement. The child was called Bernadette Soubirous, she was fourteen years old, and she was the daughter of modest workers in Lourdes.
