Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us! - click here for link to previous posts

No sudden splendour broke the grey
And even tenor of your days
No ecstasy made you forget
Your poverty in its bright rays.

Mary, the lowliest can tread
With confidence the path you trod
Your life the bright and shining star
That leads the wayfarer to God
(St Therese, Poems)
