PILGRIMAGE PRAYER Lord, I thank you for the gift of being alive this morning. I thank you for the sleep, which has refreshed me. We pray for those who may have had a restless night because of pain or anxiety. May this day be better for them. I thank you for this new day and a chance to start again.

Lord, this day is full of promise and opportunity. Help me to waste none of it. This day is full of mystery and the unknown. Help me to face it without fear and anxiety. This day is full of adventure. Help me to be fully alive to it all. During this day, may I become a more thoughtful person, a more prayerful person, a more generous and kindly person Help me not to be turned in on myself, but to be sensitive and helpful to others.

Let me do nothing today that will hurt anyone, rather, let me make life more pleasant for those I meet today. When night comes may I look back on this day without regrets and may nobody be unhappy because of anything I have said, done or failed to do. Lord, bless this day for all of us. Amen

NAME HOTEL IN LOURDES or ACCUEIL The Benedictus - (Lk 1:68-79)

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel! He has visited his people and redeemed them. He has raised up for us a mighty saviour in the house of David his servant, as he promised by the lips of holy men, those who were his prophets from of old.

A saviour who would free us from our foes, from the hands of all who hate us. So his love for our fathers is fulfilled and his holy covenant remembered.

He swore to Abraham our father to grant us, that free from fear, and saved from the hands of our foes, we might serve him in holiness and justice all the days of our life in his presence.

As for you, little child, you shall be called a prophet of God, the most high. You shall go ahead of the Lord to prepare his ways before him, to make known to his people their salvation through forgiveness of all their sins, the loving-kindness of the heart of our God who visits us like the dawn from on high.

He will give light to those in darkness, those who dwell in the shadow of death, and guide us into the way of peace.

Glory be to the Father....

OLD BRIGHTON ROAD PEASE POTTAGE, WEST SUSSEX RH11 9AJ Dear Fellow Pilgrims,

“Do whatever he tells you” – these words of Our Lady to the stewards at Cana provide the Theme for the life of the Shrine in Lourdes this year.

These words of Mary are addressed to each and every one of us. Even in the most difficult times in our lives, we are called to respond to God’s love for us, seen in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. We are not alone. The Lord is with us at every moment and, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are enabled to draw ever closer to Him. Mary’s advice to the stewards at the wedding banquet mirrored her own response to God’s call: “Be it done unto me according to your will.”

May each of us on pilgrimage – and those who cannot be with us this year and for whom we pray – listen to Mary’s advice and also respond as she did.

Let us pray this year very specially for all those in the family of the Diocese who are seeking their way and for those in our families, our Diocese and in the world at large whose lives are made more challenging through frailty, sickness and disability. Together, may we draw ever closer to the Lord as we witness together to the Word who is Life.

Bishop of Arundel and Brighton

WHAT IS A PILGRIM?

Pilgrim is a searcher. Restless, seeking truth or meaning, he or she goes on a journey. The beginning is modest, but significant. The journey of 1,000miles begins with one step, say the Chinese. “I will go on-line and complete an application form for this year’s pilgrimage”. This first step leads to a tradition born in the Middle Ages when many people went on pilgrimage to holy places. It was tourism mediaeval-style. People in those days were wise. They said that there are two types of pilgrimage, the physical (like going from London to Canterbury to pray at the tomb of St Thomas a Becket) and the spiritual (engaging in an active inner search). The first was good; the second was better and nobler.

So who is a pilgrim? We all are, both individually and as a people. I am a pilgrim person. I am on a physical and spiritual journey. I need healing. During my week’s pilgrimage I will live this experience intensely through journeying in Lourdes. Meeting strangers, making friends, exchanging stories, caring for people, moving out from the prison which often holds me back. Engaging in prayer, meeting Jesus in the sacrament of reconciliation, finding some dark bits that I do not like, and then finding relief and release in God’s loving forgiveness. My journey to Lourdes will teach me many things, and not least the importance of prayer. One peaceful moment at the Grotto in the presence of Our Lady can be a lifechanging experience.

But there is more to life than me. “No man is an island entire of itself” is what the poet John Donne said. “Every man is a piece of the continent”. We are a pilgrim church, on the road but not there yet. We have each other, a guide and a destination: heaven and eternal life. We are always open to letting people follow at their pace and picking up stragglers at any time. We belong, as part of a Hotel group or the Accueil, and in belonging, we are important. In Lourdes we learn particularly how important the sick are to our community. Through them we discover our universal fragility and our need of healing.

REDSHIRTS 2018

ince 2004 hundreds of young people, from secondary school years 10 and 11 have experienced Lourdes as a Redshirt. This year there will be approximately 60 Redshirts, 2 Hotel Leaders, 14 Team leaders and 1 Chaplain and 1 Assistant Chaplain.

The Redshirts are an integral part of the pilgrimage, yet separate, offering something very particular to young people at this stage of their faith journey. The community that is built within the group every year enables each Redshirt to feel valued, secure and loved for who they are, which allows for an honest search for God.

The Redshirts fulfil a very specific ministry of welcome, gathering before and after each of the major services to welcome and greet the pilgrims. Whilst they will not be ‘hands on’ with our Assisted Pilgrims, the conversations they will have and the acts of service they can offer to Assisted Pilgrims can leave a profound impact on them. Redshirts often return home as inspired by the people they have met in Lourdes as they are by the times of prayer and ministry sessions which are part of their programme. Many of them return as dedicated helpers from year 12 onwards, some also moving on to become Redshirt leaders, sustaining their faith and living a profound spiritual life, providing significant acts of service. For further information please contact the Pilgrimage Office by email to redshirts@ablourdes.org or by phone on 01403 740110.

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES by Catherine Simon

A Family in Need On 7th January 1844 François and Louise Soubirous (formerly Casterot) gave birth to their first child. They named her Bernadette. She was baptised two days later on her parents’ first wedding anniversary. Her baptismal name was Marie-Bernarde.

François and Louise had nine children, five of whom did not survive beyond the age of ten. Bernadette’s brother Jean-Marie alone has descendants alive today. The family lived in the little Pyrenean village of Lourdes and made their home at the Boly Mill with the rest of the Casterot family. Eventually they left the mill due to insufficient funds and found refuge in a disused prison cell called Le Cachot. The family of six lived in cramped and smelly conditions, sharing two beds between them. François accepted what work he could find whilst Bernadette battled against her poor health. Her strong desire to make her First Holy Communion led her to school with the Sisters of Nevers, who failed to be impressed by the fourteen year old and her limited understanding of theological concepts.

The ‘Beautiful Girl Dressed in White’ On Thursday 11th February 1858, despite her mother’s reluctance, Bernadette set out into the bitter cold to gather firewood with her sister, Toinette, and a friend, Jeanne Abadie (nicknamed Baloume). Together the girls arrived at the Grotto of Massabielle, where Toinette and Baloume hurriedly crossed the freezing waters of the mill stream to collect firewood. Determined not to be defeated by her asthma, Bernadette bent down to remove her footwear. As she did so, she heard a noise like a gust of wind. The noise re-emerged. As she looked up at the Grotto she saw the branches of a wild rosebush moving. Out of the darkness of the cave appeared a soft light, followed by a beautiful girl dressed in white who smiled and beckoned her. Bernadette rubbed her eyes but the smiling girl did not disappear. Deciding to reach into her apron for her rosary, Bernadette became afraid and her hand fell. The

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

Vision made the sign of the cross. Bernadette copied her and all fear vanished. She knelt and said the rosary as the Lady silently fingered her rosary beads. When the Vision signed for her to approach Bernadette did not dare and the beautiful girl dressed in white disappeared.

The Second Apparition François and Louise soon became concerned by their eldest daughter’s tales of “Aquerò” – a respectful term in the local dialect meaning “that” – and forbade her from going to Massabielle. Three days passed before Bernadette was able to return. After High Mass on Sunday 14th February, during the second decade of the rosary, the Lady appeared to her. Bernadette sprinkled some holy water at the apparition and asked her to step forward if she was from God. The Lady smiled and moved slightly towards Bernadette. Meanwhile Baloume, who had pushed a small boulder down the cliff face, prompted Bernadette’s companions to flee from the scene in fear and in search of the local miller; Nicolau said that he had never seen anything more beautiful than Bernadette in a state of ecstasy.

A Fortnight of Apparitions Rumours spread quickly about the young girl who was having visions. During the third apparition, on Thursday 18th February 1858, the Lady asked Bernadette to come to the Grotto of Massabielle every day for fifteen days. The apparition told Bernadette: “I do not promise to make you happy in this world but in the other.” “Pray for sinners” On Sunday 21st February, the crowd had swollen to over a hundred. Bernadette revealed that during the apparition the Lady looked sad and said: “Pray for sinners.” Dr Dozous, a local doctor, examined Bernadette while she was in ecstasy. He found her pulse and breathing to be normal with no sign of excitement (despite his initial scepticism he later became convinced that Our Lady had appeared to Bernadette). “Penitence, penitence, penitence” Soon the police became involved and Police Commissioner Jacomet interrogated Bernadette. (He later admitted that he was convinced that

10

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

the girl was genuine.) Bernadette always remained faithful to her account of what she had seen, including during later interrogations by the Imperial Prosecutor, Dutour. Meanwhile François had been persuaded by Jacomet to forbid Bernadette from returning to the Grotto. He could not keep his daughter away for long. Bernadette said to her parents, “I must disobey you or Aquerò.” Early in the morning of Tuesday 23rd February, the Lady appeared to Bernadette at the Grotto and remained with her for an hour, during which she gave Bernadette three secrets, none of which Bernadette ever revealed. At the following apparition three hundred people were present to hear Bernadette pass on the Lady’s message of “Penitence, penitence, penitence”.

“Go and drink at the spring and wash yourself in it” The apparition of Thursday 25th February caused wide astonishment. Kissing the ground as an act of penitence for sinners, Bernadette began to scrape the earth at the back of the cave, plastering her face with the muddy water and drinking it. She later revealed that the Lady had said to her: “Go and drink at the spring and wash yourself in it.” Not seeing any water, Bernadette had made her way towards the stream but the Lady called her back and indicated to the back of the cave. Later that day some returned and found a hole filled with water “as big as a soup tureen”: the more people drank from it the bigger the hole and the clearer the water became.

Cures It is estimated that over a thousand people were present for the eleventh apparition on Sunday 28th February. A visiting priest attended the twelfth apparition, unaware of the clerical ban imposed by Abbé Peyramale and profoundly moved by Bernadette’s ecstasy and the crowd’s silent prayer. It was on this day that the first of seven cures, proclaimed by Monseigneur Laurence to be the “work of God” in a mandate on 18th January 1862, occurred

Catherine Latapie-Chouat of Loubajac, about four miles from Lourdes, suffered from a paralysed right arm, a considerable handicap for someone whose livelihood depended on work such as spinning and knitting. She travelled to the Grotto with her two youngest children and plunged her arm into the pool of water discovered by Bernadette. Quite suddenly her arm 11

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

became supple but almost immediately she started with labour pains: she was nine months pregnant. She rushed home and gave birth within minutes of her return. She was thirty nine years old.

The spring now gushes forth several thousand gallons of water a day. The water has been tested for healing properties by scientists but they found none. Lourdes has become known for its ‘miracles’, ‘works of God’ and uncountable incidences of healing.

A Chapel and a Procession In the apparition of Tuesday 2nd March the Lady gave Bernadette two messages: “Go and tell the priests to build a chapel” and “People are to come here in procession.” Abbé Peyramale, to whom Bernadette imparted these messages, was a good man despite his gruff manner but was unhappy at the prospect of organised processions to the Grotto. Unaccustomed to instructions he commanded Bernadette to ask the lady for her name. During the following apparition, however, the Lady simply smiled when Bernadette passed on his request and Bernadette returned to the parish priest with the reiterated message: “The Lady still wants the chapel.” Abbé Peyramale told Bernadette to ask the Lady for a sign. Perhaps she could make the rosebush at the Grotto to flower – then he would build her chapel!

“Que soy era Immaculada Councepciou” Thursday 4th March marked the last apparition of the fortnight. The whole town was in a state of excitement. A large group had been praying through the night and officials made elaborate plans to control the crowd. Estimates have varied between eight and twenty thousand people present. Silence fell among the crowd as Bernadette arrived shortly after seven in the morning and began to recite her rosary, moving about the Grotto on her knees. The apparition lasted about an hour, without incident, signs or revelation of the Lady’s name.

It was three weeks before Bernadette returned to the grotto. On Thursday 25th March, on the feast of the Annunciation, Bernadette awoke at 4am with a compelling desire to go to the Grotto. When she arrived at the Grotto Bernadette found the Lady waiting for her and was overjoyed.

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

After the rosary, Bernadette asked four times for the Lady’s name. At the fourth request, Aquerò stretched out her arms at her side, joined them at her breast and raised her eyes to the sky as she said: “Que soy era Immaculada Councepciou” (I am the Immaculate Conception). Bernadette rushed to the presbytery to tell the parish priest, who outwardly dismissed the girl’s statement. Inwardly he knew that the illiterate Bernadette could not have made this up. The Church had declared the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception four years previously. “So it is the Blessed Virgin,” he thought to himself.

Barricading the Grotto Wednesday 7th April marked the seventeenth apparition. While in ecstasy Bernadette was unaware that the flame of a candle that she was holding licked her cupped hands for several minutes. Upon inspection of her hands Doctor Dozous found not the slightest trace of burns. After the apparition the public authorities barricaded the Grotto. The Prefect at Tarbes, Baron Massy, tried to discredit the events along with Bernadette, whom he attempted to admit to a mental institution. Abbé Peyramale, who had become a great friend and support to Bernadette, defended her but the Grotto remained closed.

First Holy Communion Bernadette made her First Holy Communion on Thursday 3rd June, the feast of Corpus Christi, at the Convent of Sisters of Charity. On being asked whether her First Holy Communion or the Apparitions made her happier, she replied: “The two things go together but they cannot be compared. I was very happy with both.”

The Final Apparition At about seven o’clock in the evening on the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Bernadette had the final apparition from the meadow beyond the far bank of the Gave, having been prevented by the barricades and the crowds from entering the Grotto. She later remarked that it was as though she was in her beloved Grotto itself and that the Lady was more beautiful than she had ever seen her.

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES

The Commission of Enquiry On 28th July 1858 Monseigneur Laurence, the Bishop of Tarbes, set up a Commission to make a complete and thorough inquiry into the events at Massabielle, which lasted three years. The Bishop announced its findings on 18th January 1862: “It is our judgment that Mary Immaculate, Mother of God, did really appear to Bernadette Soubirous on 11th February 1858, and on subsequent days, eighteen times in all, in the Grotto of Massabielle, close to the town of Lourdes.”

Sister Marie-Bernarde Bernadette faced constant curiosity from outsiders and extremely poor health. She soon moved to the hospice run by the Sisters of Charity in Lourdes, where she remained for six years until she moved to the Convent of St Gildard and community of the Sisters of Charity in Nevers. She only referred to the apparitions when asked, saying: “I know nothing. I am good for nothing, useless.” Before leaving Lourdes on 4th July 1866 Bernadette was present at the inauguration of The Crypt, the “Chapel” requested by Our Lady. She bid farewell to her beloved Grotto, later saying: “The Grotto was my heaven; you will find me there at the foot of the rock.”

Within three months of arrival in Nevers she received the “Last Sacraments” on what was considered to be her death bed. At the same time she took her vows of simple profession, repeated publicly in October 1867. As Sister Marie-Bernarde she tried to live a life of obscurity and devotion to her tasks as a nun but in 1874 she became too ill for active duties, suffering from chronic asthma, constant chest pains, abscesses, a tumour on the knee and bone decay. Bernadette died on 16th April 1879, aged 35.

Thirty years later her body was exhumed in the cause of her beatification and was found to be in a state of perfect preservation: there was no decay. After re-burial her body was exhumed in 1913 and finally in 1925. Her body was placed in a glass casket and now rests in the chapel of the convent of St Gildard in Nevers. Pope Pius XI proclaimed Bernadette a Saint on 8th December 1933, the feast of the Immaculate Conception.

SOME SAYINGS OF BERNADETTE

I shall always have enough health, but never enough love for Our Blessed Lord.

I am entrusted with telling you what I have seen and heard; I am not entrusted with making you believe it. I shall not live an instant without loving.

I was a broom for the Virgin Mary; when she no longer needed me she put me in my right place, which was behind the door.

It is not necessary to give each other a keepsake when we love each other, but remember we must love and help others without counting the cost. I fear nothing because I have always told the truth.

Jesus came on earth to be my model. I want to follow him and walk generously in his footsteps. O Mary, my good Mother, help me follow your example to be generous in every sacrifice Our Lord may ask of me during my life.

I shall spend every moment loving. One who loves does not notice her trials; or perhaps more accurately, she is able to love them (her trials).

From this moment on, anything concerning me is no longer of any interest to me. I must belong entirely to God, and to God alone. Never to myself.

I must die to myself continually and accept trials without complaining. I work. I suffer and I love with no other witness than his heart.

THE SANCTUARY OF OUR LADY OF LOURDES

The Sanctuary or Domain is the name given to the enclosed area around the Grotto. There are many places of worship and interest in the Sanctuary and this area is the focus for all pilgrimages to Lourdes. Anyone new to Lourdes might like to take a brief walk round the Sanctuary following the path described below in order to familiarise themselves with the location of places that we will be using/visiting during the week.

St Joseph’s Gate, marked by the statue of St Joseph, is the gate through which we enter the Sanctuary on our way to Mass each day. There is a statue towards the bottom of the slope on the left hand side, called “Salus Infirmorum” in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary “Health of the Sick”. Our Lady is greeting a sick pilgrim on a stretcher accompanied by a priest, a nurse and a helper.

Les Permanences, pilgrimage offices, are opposite the statues. Our pilgrimage has use of one of these offices where you can order postcards, CDs of A&B Lourdes music and many other items. The times when this office is open will be on display in your hotel. The Statue of the Crowned Virgin stands facing the Basilicas and is often used by groups as a meeting point – notice the Rosary beads.

Rosary Square is the name given to the area in front of the Basilicas. The square can accommodate over 40,000 people and is where the Torchlight procession gathers at its end each evening. The Basilicas may at first appear to be just one church, but are in fact three. The Rosary Basilica is encircled by the ramps, which lead up to the Crypt and the Upper Basilica. Walk across Rosary Square towards the Basilicas.

16


DAB-053 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 02/07/2018 12:32 Page 17

THE SANCTUARY

The Esplanade Altar is to the left of the Basilicas as we look at them. The A&B pilgrimage sometimes celebrates Mass at this outside altar.

The Arches to the right of the Rosary Basilica, under the ramp, form the entrance to the area leading to the Grotto, the Water taps and the Baths, the river and bridges leading to the Prairie, the name given to the grass area on the opposite side of the river. Walk under the arches and bear left.

Candles can be purchased from the containers beyond the arches and left either at the Grotto or placed in the candleholders on the Prairie.

The Grotto where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette is the central focal point for all pilgrims. Pilgrims are asked to maintain silence in this area in respect of those who come here to pray.

The Taps where pilgrims can wash to refresh themselves during the day are just beyond the Grotto, before you arrive at the Baths.

The Baths are housed in a building beyond the Taps. Originally they were closer to the Grotto. The present building houses seventeen baths, eleven for women and six for men (including two for children). The baths are open daily from 8.30am to 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 6.00pm – except Sundays and holydays when they are only open from 10am to 12noon and 2pm to 4pm.

The Bridges outside the entrance to the baths and beyond the baths lead across to the Prairie.

The Candle Stands are where people can place candles and offer prayer for those whom they have said they would pray for in Lourdes or those who have asked for prayers. They are now situated on the Prairie, between the two bridges near the Baths.

The Low Stations are situated along the river bank, to the left, on the Prairie side of the far bridge.

THE SANCTUARY

The Church of St Bernadette is on the left as you walk along the river bank opposite the Grotto, although it is one church the space inside can be divided, creating two separate spaces.

The Accueil Notre Dame is neither a hospital nor a hotel yet paradoxically functions as both. It is a place of welcome and accommodation for sick and/or disabled pilgrims who need a higher level of care than could be provided in a hotel. The A&B pilgrimage is allocated a ward in the Accueil, which will be served by our own doctors, nurses and helpers. A catering team helps to provide all the meals for the A&B pilgrims resident in the Accueil. At the front of the Accueil facing the Sanctuary, are two benches, the Pilgrim Bench and the Youth Bench. These were installed in 2016 in memory of Lady Sarah Clutton and are in recognition of her unique contribution to our Diocesan Pilgrimage. The bridges between the Church of St Bernadette and the Accueil take you back, under the arches in one case, to Rosary Square.

Cross over the bridge and once back in Rosary Square turn left and take the long walkway towards the far end of the area.

The Esplanade, sometimes called the Rosary Walk, is the area behind the Crowned Virgin statue and is the route of the processions.

St Michael’s Gate is the entrance to the sanctuary at the far end of the esplanade and is so called because of the statue of St Michael the Archangel which stands just outside the gate on the right hand side looking towards the Basilicas. The Breton Calvary is the large cross in the centre of the circular lawn in front of St Michael’s gate.

The Basilica of St Pius X is on your left as you come back towards Rosary Square from St Michael’s Gate, but you can only see the grass covered roof – the main part of the building is underground, and on most days, you can enter this vast Basilica and look round the building.

PLACES OF WORSHIP WITHIN THE SANCTUARY THE GROTTO OF MASSABIELLE

This small cave is at the very heart of Lourdes. This is the spot where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette eighteen times in 18581, a place where heaven and earth touched. Ever since that time it has been a place of pilgrimage, prayer and contemplation.

In a niche above and to the right on the Grotto is a statue representing Our Lady of Lourdes. On the ground in front of the Grotto and slightly to the left is a plaque marking the spot where Bernadette knelt in prayer on the occasion of the first apparition. Benches often cover the plaque, so it is not always easy to find. Another plaque immediately in front of the Grotto shows where Pope John Paul II knelt in prayer on his visit to Lourdes. At the back of the Grotto, on the left, there is the spring discovered by Bernadette on 25th February 1858. This water is channelled to the Baths and the taps. Behind the altar, which is made of solid rock, at the back of the Grotto on the right, is a box for pilgrim’s petitions.

Pilgrims move silently though the Grotto, usually entering from the left as we face it and departing to the right.

Mass is celebrated in the Grotto each day (times and languages of the Masses are displayed in the Information Centre). The last Mass of the day is at 11.00pm and is usually in French. Many pilgrims like to visit the Grotto each day.

The 18th apparition was experienced by Bernadette on the Prairie because the access to the Grotto was closed off by a barrier.

THE CRYPT

The Crypt was the first of the churches to be built in answer to Our Lady’s request to Bernadette during the 13th apparition when Our Lady asked Bernadette to ask the priests to build a chapel and requested that the people came in procession. Twenty-five local men, including Bernadette’s father, cut into the rock above the Grotto to build the Crypt. Bernadette was present, but hidden among the congregation, when it was blessed and opened on 19th May 1866. Shortly after this event Bernadette left Lourdes for the convent in Nevers.

The Crypt contains a relic of St Bernadette in a small chapel to the right as you enter. It is a place of silent prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and is open between 5:30am to midnight during the pilgrimage season. Access to the crypt is available via both St Joseph’s and St Michael’s gates.

THE BASILICA OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, KNOWN AS THE UPPER BASILICA

The title ‘Basilica’ is conferred by the Pope on important places of pilgrimage. There are three Basilicas in the Sanctuary of Lourdes.

The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception is situated on the rock above the Grotto and was completed in 1872. It was consecrated in 1876 and was the second church to be built. The Upper Basilica can be reached from the top of the ramps. Just inside the entrance, on the right, is a plaque showing the text of the judgement given by Mgr Laurence proclaiming the Apparitions to be authentic. The altar in the basilica is directly above the Grotto. The tip of the spire is 70 metres high and houses four main bells which every hour play the “Ave Maria of Lourdes”.

THE BASILICA OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY

The Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, known as the Rosary Basilica, is in front of and below the Crypt and Upper Basilica; it forms the third church in the group, which from a distance could be mistaken for one cathedral. It can be reached from Rosary Square, up a wide flight of steps or the ramp to the left of the main doors as you look at them.

The Rosary Basilica was built between 1883 and 1899 and consecrated on 6th October 1901. The crown and cross, covered in gold leaf, on top of the dome were renovated in 2001 on the hundredth anniversary of the consecration. The portal above the great doors depicts Our Lady with the child Jesus, commending the rosary to St Dominic. The mosaic walls of the Basilica are dedicated to the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious mysteries of the Rosary.

On the front of the Basilica the mosaics portray the Mysteries of Light, which were added in 2008 to commemorate the Jubilee Year.

PLACES OF WORSHIP WITHIN THE SANCTUARY

THE CHURCH OF ST BERNADETTE

The latest church to be built in the Sanctuary is the Church of St Bernadette, across the river on the prairie. It was from this site that Bernadette experienced the last of the apparitions on the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 16th July 1858. The Church of St Bernadette was blessed in 1988. It can hold 5000 but is usually divided into smaller sections (Côté Grotte and Côté Carmel) to allow a number of groups to use it at the same time. On the right of the church there is a conference centre known as the “Hemicycle”. Behind the church on the hillside outside the Sanctuary, is the Carmelite Convent.

THE ADORATION CHAPEL

The Adoration Chapel is to the left of the Church of St Bernadette and is all too easy to miss! It is available for silent prayer throughout the day and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 6.00am to 11.00pm each day during the summer. The chapel is built on twelve pillars representing the twelve apostles, and is a haven of peace and prayer.

THE PODIUM

This open air altar on the prairie opposite the Grotto has a large awning over the altar. It allows very large gatherings to meet for the celebration of Mass close to the Grotto. This is where Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass in 2004 and Pope Benedict XVI celebrated Mass in September 2008.

ST JOSEPH’S CHAPEL

This small, partly underground chapel dedicated to St Joseph can be found on the left of the Esplanade just before St Michael’s gate.

THE BASILICA OF ST PIUS X

The Underground Basilica of St Pius X was consecrated on the Feast of the Annunciation, 1958 to celebrate the centenary of the apparitions, by Cardinal Roncalli, who later became Pope John XXIII. The basilica made of concrete is huge and can accommodate 25,000 people. The Underground Basilica is the venue each afternoon for the Blessing of the sick at the conclusion of the Blessed Sacrament Procession.

The A&B pilgrimage will celebrate the Mass with Anointing at the central altar of this amazing building. There are two chapels for silent prayer in the Basilica; the Blessed Sacrament Chapel and the Chapel of St Therese of Lisieux.

There are also many sculptures in Gammail (illuminated stained glass) depicting:

– The Eighteen Apparitions – The Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary – The Way of the Cross

Hanging from the ceiling throughout the basilica are several huge ‘tapestries’ showing images of Saints and Martyrs, including a photograph of St Bernadette.

A GUIDE TO THE PROCESSIONS IN LOURDES

During our week in Lourdes we will participate as a pilgrimage in two processions – the Torchlight and the Blessed Sacrament. We will also process as a Diocese. In this article we explore the meaning of taking part in a procession.

A procession is a journey which symbolises in mini-form what our pilgrimage is about. It is the courage to move out of our comfort zone, join with other people and seek to encounter the Lord. Every procession starts with one type of order – through the goodwill of all participants we get ourselves ready and in line – and ends with a different experience – we celebrate being together as “Church, People of God, Body of Christ, Temple of the Holy Spirit.” (Vatican 2) A procession is not:

 A race – we will all get to the final destination. There is no prize for being the first. Indeed in the Blessed Sacrament Procession the most honoured position is at the end of the Procession where the Bishop carries the host.  A march – we are each one of us unique individuals making together a pilgrim Church, not an army on the march. Our goal is unity not uniformity.  A parade – many people will look on as we process through Lourdes, but we are not showing ourselves off to others. We are witnesses of faith obeying the command which Our Lady gave to Bernadette telling people to “come in procession”.

A procession is:

 A humble and respectful walk accompanied by meditation, song and prayer.  A community in which many different groups - a people of all nations - come together to worship. We do not choose the place where we walk – we accept humbly the place that is given to us in order to form part of that community.  A reflection of what the Church is – the people of God walking towards the Light, overcoming tribulations on the way, renewing itself constantly under the action and the influence of the Holy Spirit.

26


DAB-053 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 02/07/2018 12:32 Page 27

THE TORCHLIGHT (MARIAN) PROCESSION

The Torchlight procession dates back to the earliest times when pilgrims would end their day’s pilgrimage by saying the rosary together and singing hymns to Our Lady and takes place every evening, starting at 9.00pm. As a pilgrimage we take part in the procession on one evening during the week, but pilgrims may take part on other evenings if they wish. On the evening when we are officially processing as a diocese we will gather and form up behind the diocesan banner.

Pilgrims in wheelchairs or on stretchers gather in one area, walkers in another, the two groups coming together when the procession begins. This start is symbolic as we will journey from separation to unity.

All participants carry a lighted candle which is a reminder of our baptism, when we received the gift of faith. In Lourdes, the candle lit procession bears witness to our faith, hope and love of God and a reminder that we are called to be ‘the light of Christ’ to all we meet in the world.

During the procession the Rosary will be prayed in a variety of languages, reflecting the different nationalities present in Lourdes at the time. However the ‘Glory be’ is always said in Latin, because Our Lady joined in with Bernadette on the Glory Be of each decade that she recited. The following two hymns are also usually sung: “Immaculate Mary” and “Holy Virgin, by God’s decree” – these hymns are often printed on the paper candle holder.

Having processed right round the Esplanade, those using wheelchairs are placed at the foot of the Basilica steps. While this is happening walkers are directed into processing from side to side of rosary square, which prolongs the procession and creates a wonderful weaving of light, as night falls. Eventually all those processing are gathered in front of the Rosary Basilica and the evening concludes with a hymn to Our Lady, usually the “Salve Regina”, after which pilgrims will be invited to offer one another a sign of peace.

After the procession some people like to go to the Grotto or to the candle bank to continue their prayer.

THE BLESSED SACRAMENT PROCESSION AND BLESSING OF THE SICK

This procession is almost as old as the first pilgrimages to Lourdes. It was first linked to the movement of the Blessed Sacrament from the Crypt to the Grotto where adoration took place. But the sick were detached from this and so a new form was introduced which included the blessing of the sick.

This procession and blessing of the sick takes place every day at 5.00pm. As a pilgrimage we will take part on one particular day, though pilgrims can attend on other days if they so wish.

Pilgrims who are unable or do not wish to process will go direct to the underground Basilica of St Pius X where they can participate in prayer and adoration by watching the progress of the procession towards the Basilica on the large screens.

The Blessed Sacrament is carried, by a Bishop, in solemn procession, under a canopy and accompanied by priests and deacons, from the Crypt of the Rosary Basilica to the underground Basilica. Pilgrims gathered in Rosary Square lead the procession into the Basilica. Once everyone is gathered there is a time of silent adoration before the Blessed Sacrament – we don’t have to do anything, we just have to ‘be’, and feel the love of God. The Cure d’Ars, when asked what he did during his time of private prayer said “I look at Him and He looks at me”

In Lourdes the service of Benediction is amplified by a small procession. The main celebrant, carrying the monstrance, is followed by other bishops and a procession of doctors. As they move round the altar the procession stops at frequent intervals to bless the sick and disabled. As the priest makes the sign of the cross with the monstrance containing the sacred host, our faith tells us that it is Our Lord himself who blesses us, and we receive the benediction with reverence, head bowed.

MASS WITHANOINTING OFTHE SICK

When you speak to any pilgrim who has been to Lourdes on our Annual Diocesan Pilgrimage, most will tell you that one of the highlights is Mass with the Anointing of the Sick.

The origin of anointing and prayers for strength to accept sickness dates back to Jesus’ time. In the Gospels we find many references to Jesus caring for the sick and disabled and it was good that He gave special attention to them. You will recall the story of the paralytic, where Jesus said “Your sins are forgiven” “But to prove to you that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins” - He said to the paralytic - “Get up and pick up your bed and go off home” Matthew 9: v3, 6-8. “The Apostles set off to preach repentance and they anointed many sick people with oil.” Mark 6: v 12-15. Also, on many occasions He would say to those calling for help “Do you believe?”

You will recall the leper who came to Jesus after sunset – “If it be your will, you have power to make me clean”. Jesus was moved to pity, held out His hand and touched him and said “I will, be clean.” Mark 1: v40-45. Note that the leper said “If it be your will”. Jesus knows what is best for us. He taught us in the ‘Our Father’ – “Thy will be done”. “Is there a man among you who would hand his son a stone when he asked for bread, or a snake for a fish? If you know to give your children what is good, how much more will your Father in Heaven give good things to those who love Him” Matthew 7: v9-11 In his agony in the garden of Gethsemane, He prayed “Abba (Father) everything is possible for you – take this cup away from me; but let it be as you, not I, would have it.” Mark 14: v36.

When at home, struggling to be faithful members of the Church, or here in Lourdes awaiting to receive the Sacrament, we must try and pray for the graces to accept God’s will in every day of our lives. God will answer our prayers for good health and relief from pain, in His own way and time and in the way best for each of us. Prayer for each other is the best gift for us all now, on our Pilgrimage and when we go back home. 29


DAB-053 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 02/07/2018 12:32 Page 30

MASS WITH ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Who may receive the Sacrament of Anointing? Certainly all those who have been baptised; have reached the use of reason; those who are seriously unwell or profoundly disabled; those who are very elderly, or extremely frail.

During the Anointing, all receiving the Sacrament can be assured of a remembrance in prayer by all pilgrims. It is an added blessing to receive the Sacrament during Mass celebrated by Bishop Richard and the priests. If you have any queries, speak to your Chaplain or Deacon; your leaders will keep you informed about the celebration.

The Rite of Anointing The Liturgy for Anointing is well prepared and celebrated. Bishop and priests lay their hands, in silence, on the heads of those to be anointed; prayers and blessing of oil follows; then the sign of the cross with the oil on the foreheads “Through this holy anointing, may the Lord in His love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit” and the hands “May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up”.

How should you be prepared? Have Faith in Jesus Christ. Faith is a special gift; treasure it through prayer when you go to Mass, visit the Grotto and take part in the daily celebrations. Pray to accept God’s will for you here in Lourdes and at home. It is good to be reconciled – to confess and receive absolution. Our young helpers are an inspiration to us; they look so happy to be helpers. Smile with them!! It is important to invite them to pray with you and for you. Bernadette said “My vocation is that of being sick”.

Rev. Canon Seamus Hester

MASS WITH ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Individual Prayer at the end of the Mass with anointing

It is acknowledged that from time to time pilgrims seek healing at the Mass with anointing for situations that technically do not “qualify” for the Sacrament of Anointing, for example: a bereavement or prayers on behalf of a sick relative. It is hoped that some of these pilgrims will find comfort and healing at the Hotel Group Mass, which will focus on bereavement and loss, others may be comforted and receive healing through the Service of Reconciliation. However this may still leave a few pilgrims feeling that they wish to have a dedicated time of prayer for someone they love or for a specific intention that is not picked up through any other liturgy.

With this in mind there will be a short period (10 minutes) at the end of the Mass with anointing, when all members of the clergy and the assistant chaplains, will spread out around the St Pius X Basilica and pilgrims individually or in small groups will be invited to go to a chaplain of their choice to express an intention that will then be prayed for by the chaplain – with the individual or group who have presented themselves (e.g. a family) coming together to pray for one specific family member or friend. This is not intended to be a time of lengthy discussion or counselling, though this might follow later if there is a need. It is purely a time of prayer, where intentions are made known, and the clergy pray with the pilgrim for the need expressed.

THE 70th LOURDES CURE Sr Bernadette Moriau - July 2008

A French bishop declared on Sunday 11th February 2018 that the recovery of a long-debilitated nun made after she visited the shrine in Lourdes was a miracle, the 70th event to be recognised as an act of divine intervention at the shrine.

Bishop Jacques Benoit-Gonin of Beauvais proclaimed the miracle nearly a decade after Sr Bernadette Moriau attended the Blessed Sacrament Procession in Lourdes. Bishop Nicolas Brouwet announced the news on 11th February 2018, at the end of the Mass for the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Sr Bernadette’s experience underwent extensive studies and tests by the International Medical Committee of Lourdes before the Bishop announced the miracle.

Sr Bernadette had four operations on her spinal column between 1968 and 1975 and was declared fully disabled in 1980. One foot was permanently twisted, requiring her to wear a brace and use a wheelchair. She took what she said were significant doses of morphine for pain.

After returning to her home convent near Beauvais and praying in the chapel, Sr Bernadette reported that “I felt a (surge of) well-being throughout my body, a relaxation, warmth….I returned to my room and, there, a voice told me to ‘take off your braces,'” she said in a video posted on the Beauvais diocese web site. “Surprise. I could move.”

Sr Bernadette said she immediately did away with all her aids, from braces to morphine — and took a 5 kilometre hike a few days later.

Bishop Nicolas said the nun’s “sudden, instantaneous, complete and durable change” alerted him to a possible miracle. The Lourdes medical committee said the changes were unexplainable “in the current state of our scientific knowledge,” he added.

A miracle at Lourdes was last declared in 2013. It involved an Italian woman who visited Lourdes in 1989, suffering severe high blood pressure and other problems.

THE BATHS (PISCINES)

“Go drink of the water and wash yourself there.”

This was the request the Blessed Virgin Mary made to Bernadette during the ninth apparition. Bernadette dug into the soil at the back of the Grotto and found a mountain spring. Water has flowed from this spring ever since and continues to flow today. This spring can be seen, covered by a glass panel, at the back of the Grotto. This water is channelled through underground pipes to: - the Baths - the reservoirs that supply the taps

It is ordinary water, yet using it in faith has led to miraculous cures. Of the sixty-seven recorded miracles of Lourdes, forty-nine occurred during the use of Lourdes water; through drinking it, washing with it or bathing in it.

Immersing ourselves in the baths is a reminder of our Baptism. We do so in a spirit of humility, faith and prayer and associate ourselves with Bernadette by responding to Our Lady’s request.

While we wait outside the baths the Rosary is recited and prayers and invocations are said or sung in various languages. We are encouraged to join in the prayers.

A team of volunteer helpers work at the Baths and offer assistance to those who may need it and doctors and nurses are always on duty should a pilgrim require medical assistance. Our Pilgrimage has been allocated a time when A&B pilgrims can go through the baths. If this day and time is not convenient please speak with your Hotel Leaders.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

The Stations of the Cross (or Way of the Cross) follows stages in the journey Jesus took on his way to Calvary in Jerusalem. To follow the Stations of the Cross is to reflect on the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus. We give thanks for his unconditional love for each one of us and consider how we are living the gospel message of love and forgiveness. There are several sets of Stations of the Cross in Lourdes:

The High Stations The entrance to the High Stations is opposite the entrance of the Upper Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. This rough and stony path winds its way for about a mile through a steep, wooded area. There are 115 gilded cast iron figures in the 15 stations. This path is unsuitable for wheelchair users and those unable to walk uphill. (One of our pilgrimage chaplains will lead able pilgrims and helpers along these stations each morning at 6.15am. It should conclude by 7.00am, so there is still time for breakfast before the remainder of the day’s activities)

The Marble Stations (Low Stations) Commissioned to create a new set of Stations that would be accessible for all pilgrims, especially this sick and less able, the sculptress Maria de Faykod has created seventeen Stations carved in marble. In these stations the 15th depicts the closed tomb and the waiting of Mary on Holy Saturday; the 16th is “Jesus is risen” and the 17th Station depicts the story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus. These stations are situated just beyond the far bridge, alongside the river, on the prairie side. Underground Basilica of St Pius X There is a set of stations in the underground Basilica of St Pius X in the art form known as “Gemmail”; they are backlit through layers of coloured glass and are mounted on the walls of the basilica.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

These following reflections are meant to be starting points, a means to trigger personal thoughts, comments and prayer at each station. However if using the script as written, it lends itself to two or three voices at each station – if praying as a group, there is an opportunity for all to participate, if they wish. At each Station all say together:

Lord, by your cross and resurrection you have set us free; you are the Saviour of the world. After each meditation, pause and then say together:

I love you Jesus, my Love, above all things. I am heartily sorry for having offended you. Never permit me to separate myself from you again. Grant that I may love you always and then do with me whatever you will.

WALK WITH ME

Meditations on the Way of the Cross edited by Gerald Coates

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We sign ourselves with the Cross of Christ. Father, in Baptism we were signed with the Cross of Christ. There is an urgency in our Christian lives that allows no pause for we are indeed a pilgrim people. We cannot stand still we cannot remain the same. As now we meditate again on the Way of the Cross we continue on our journey, seeking yourself. Be with us Lord as we accept the Cross that each of us must carry.

FIRST STATION: JESUS IS CONDEMNED TO DEATH

The High Priest put a second question to him. ‘Are you the Christ, the son of the Blessed One?’ ‘I am’, said Jesus. Mark 14:60

The Prisoner, looking beyond his captors, said little in his own defence, responding only in honesty and truth. Because of this, they had already agreed his guilt.

Lord, we hear your voice declaring (for all who will listen) the mystery of Incarnation.

We seek your silent face and acknowledge our need for forgiveness.

And when they had finished making fun of him, they took off the cloak and dressed him in his own clothes, and led him away to crucify him. Matthew 27:31

Condemned, He was taken by force of arms at dawn.

Having beaten him, they led him away for execution to a place beyond the city limits.

Lord, you accepted your Cross and began your final journey; - it had to be done.

May I accept my Cross, understanding that my journey cannot be made without it.

Meanwhile, Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard and a servant girl came up to him and said: ‘You were with Jesus the Galilean’. But he denied it.

Matthew 26:69, 70

Weakened, his footsteps faltered as he stumbled, hand outstretched, fearful of the ground. His friend watched the Galilean fall, and said – nothing.

Lord, our lack of faith breaks the rhythm of our footfall and the closing earth surrounds us.

There is darkness, loneliness and emptiness as we ask ‘Where are you?’

FOURTH STATION: JESUS MEETS HIS MOTHER

At Cana, in Galilee, Jesus had said, ‘Woman, why turn to me? My time has not come yet’. His Mother said to the servants ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ John 2:4,5

Prevented by the force of arms from coming close, a Mother seeks her Son. The disappeared one taken from her in the night. Soon she will be left with only her memories.

Lord, how can a Mother see her Son suffer and not suffer herself?

Yet, step by step, she stayed with you, from a Stable to Nazareth and on to Cana. Now in this press of Passover people, she is with you.

In a short while, she will be found standing by the Cross. Walk with me, Mary, on the path I must travel.

Stay with me.

FIFTH STATION: SIMON OF CYRENE HELPS JESUS TO CARRY HIS CROSS

As they were leading him away, they seized on a man, Simon, from Cyrene, who was coming in from the country and made him shoulder the Cross and carry it behind Jesus. Luke 23:26

Unable to walk on alone, a man taken from the crowd is told to help him. There is no choice.

Condemned men must die – at the appropriate place – for the sake of the people.

Lord, Simon was a face from the crowd, an extra shoulder and a pair of hands to share the load.

May we give to others a lift on the way, expecting nothing, offering everything.

Luke 23:27

Sweating with exhaustion from his ill treatment, he pauses for breath. A woman, ignoring personal risk, wipes his face with a cloth.

Her kindness done, she becomes again another person, one among many, - street side faces on a Friday morning.

Lord, who she was, where she came from, does not matter. She cared enough to risk all – and asked nothing in return.

SEVENTH STATION: JESUS FALLS A SECOND TIME

When he went out to the gateway, another servant girl saw him and said to the people there: ‘This man was with Jesus the Nazarene.’ And again with an oath he denied it. Matthew 26: 71, 72

Broken by pain, he falls again.

The Nazarene, eyesight blurred, momentarily sees his friend gazing at him. But neither can speak, He turns and is gone.

Lord, Peter was a fearful man and he acted out of fear. His denial was our denial, day after day, year after year. Sometimes we too claim that we do not know you, fearful of the cost. Maybe tomorrow Lord, maybe it will be easier then.

Luke 23:28

Protesting at his treatment by the authorities, the Women of Peace gather by the road. A passing word, and they move him on. The women are left weeping, confused.

Lord, too often women have raised their voices at the folly of men. Too often they have been ignored.

May we, their children, listen to their words and their cries: and hearing them, hear you.

A little later, the bystanders came up and said to Peter, ‘You are one of them for sure! Why your accent gives you away.’ Then he started calling down curses on himself and swearing ‘I do not know the man.’ Matthew 26:73, 74

Beaten, but now within sight of the Hill, face down in the dust. Unrecognisable. Voiceless.

Lord, time and again we almost make it, and turning, dejected and disheartened, we realise our failure.

Even then, Lord, you are with us.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

TENTH STATION: JESUS IS STRIPPED OF HIS GARMENTS I can count every one of my bones and there they glare at me, gloating. The shared out my clothing among them They cast lots for my clothes.

Psalm 22:17-18 John 19:24

Stripped, he is prepared for public shame. Bruised, he is silent.

With shoulders bared he accepts the inevitable. Besides, the crowd are waiting.

Lord, strip me of all I carry; strip me of everything that prevents me from carrying my Cross.

And when I am stripped be there to sustain me.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

ELEVENTH STATION: JESUS IS NAILED TO THE CROSS

When they reached the place called the Skull, they crucified him there.

Luke 23:33

Nailed to the wooden frame that stretched wide his arms and secured his feet, there, on the Hill, he is raised above the people.

Lord, the hammering of nails has echoed across this earth as we repeatedly crucify you. Man against man, nation against nation. Yet from that Cross of Suffering with failing voice you called, ‘Father forgive them for they do not know what they do.’ Father, forgive us.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

TWELFTH STATION: JESUS DIES ON THE CROSS

It was now about the sixth hour and with the sun eclipsed, a darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. The veil of the temple was torn right down the middle and when Jesus had cried out in a loud voice, he said ‘Father into your hands I commend my spirit’. With these words he breathed his last. Luke 23:44-46

Naked on the Cross, he gazed at those whose fists were raised in anger, until he could see no more.

There, in the late afternoon, with head bowed, body and spirit exhausted, he ceased the struggle. It was done.

Lord, how are we to understand those hours late on a Friday before Passover?

How can we share the emptiness of those who walked with you, seeing you now defeated, hung between thieves?

So this was where all the hours and days of walking and talking finally ended.

Defeat on a Hill – and a satisfied crowd – Finished.

THIRTEENTH STATION: JESUS IS TAKEN DOWN FROM THE CROSS Take care of every bone Yahweh will not let one be broken.

Psalm 34:20

Lifeless, his savaged body lay, once again, in the caring arms of his Mother. Journey over. Task complete. Failure in the sight of men.

Lord, the final act of your friends was to accept your lifeless body for burial.

Accept, Lord, our failures, our mistakes and our careless ways. Bury them, Lord, with the suffering of your Cross.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

FOURTEENTH STATION: JESUS IS LAID IN THE TOMB

They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with spices in linen cloths, following the custom of Jewish burial. John 19:40

Burial did not take long.

Laying him out nearby (before the last light and the coming Festival) they covered him with a cloth. ‘It is time we were gone.’ Turning into the dusk they left him.

Lord, it is over, the Way of the Cross has been walked. The story has been told and prophecy fulfilled.

‘What now?’ they must have said to one another as they walked into the chill night air.

Father, we have shared again the Passover journey of your Son. We have followed his Way of the Cross.

As Christian people we understand that must be our way too. Help us through this Prayer of the Cross to seek your will for us.

Please note, Fr Gerry’s Stations of the Cross finished at Station Fourteen, so we include the following reflections for those who wish to complete the journey.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

FIFTEENTH STATION (OF THE MARBLE STATIONS): THE CLOSED TOMB

The fifteenth depicts the closed tomb, the waiting of Mary on Holy Saturday. The inscription on the fifteenth station on the set close to the river, says, “With faith and certain hope, Mary waited for the third day.”

There is a time of waiting when someone dies, a time of sadness, emptiness and immediate grief. There are family and friends to tell, arrangements to be made; it is exhausting. Grief has to be faced but for those with faith, there is hope in the Resurrection. We pray for all who mourn. Let us reflect and pray.

SIXTEENTH STATION (OF THE MARBLE STATIONS): HE IS RISEN

On the first day of the week the women went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away and the body of the Lord was not there. Two men in dazzling white appeared to them and said, “Why look among the dead for someone who is alive? He is not here. He is Risen.” (Luke 24: 1 – 6)

Our faith teaches us that death is not the end but a door through which we pass on our journey to the Father. Through his death and Resurrection Jesus gives us the hope and promise of eternal life. Let us reflect and pray.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS

SEVENTEENTH STATION (OF THE MARBLE STATIONS): THE PILGRIMS OF EMMAUS

As the disciples made their way home, a stranger walked alongside them. It was Jesus himself, but something prevented them from recognising him. (Luke 24: 13-15)

We are called to see goodness and love in everyone we meet. It can be difficult to do this; some people simply annoy and irritate us and no doubt we irritate others. We are all children of God and loved by him. We are made in God’s image and likeness and if we fail to see the love of God in one another can we claim to love God?

Let us pray that the light of Christ in each of us is visible to others we meet. As they grew close to their home they invited the stranger to stay and eat with them - “And they recognised him at the breaking of bread” (Luke 24: 31)

We pray that the Eucharist will be an awakening for us, too.

Give me a pure heart that I may see Thee; a humble heart, that I may hear Thee; a heart of love that I may serve Thee; a heart of faith that I may abide in Thee. Dag Hammarskjöld Let us reflect and pray.

THE SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION

Pope Paul VI published the “new rite” for the Sacrament of Penance in 1974, calling it the Sacrament of Reconciliation in order to bring a new understanding of this great gift from God. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a call for a change of heart; it is a symbol of life, dying to sin and rising to new life. During our pilgrimage we shall have the opportunity to attend a Penitential Service and celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, where we humbly acknowledge that we are sinners and desire to change our ways to God’s way of love. We acknowledge our faults, our failings, and our sinfulness; say sorry, make amends and seek God’s forgiveness.

It is a Sacrament of healing and forgiveness; it brings joy and hope to our lives. Through it we become reconciled to God, with others and ourselves. The new rite encourages the penitent to treasure a moment that should be one of the most beautiful moments of his or her life. The heavens rejoice over the sinner who repents and is reconciled to God (Lk 15: 7). We too should rejoice!

If you are uncertain of what to do and what to say, don’t worry. Guidance may be given during the service but if not, simply approach the priest for private confession with an open heart and ask him to help you make your confession and celebrate the Sacrament.

There is also the Chapel of Reconciliation in the building known as Accueil Jean-Paul II, close to the statue of the crowned Virgin, where Confessions are heard daily from 10.00 – 11.15 am and from 2.30 – 6.00 pm. Any of the priests on our pilgrimage would be happy to celebrate the Sacrament of reconciliation with you by arrangement.

Reflection To prepare to celebrate the Sacrament we think about the ways in which we have failed to embrace God’s love for us, we consider the ways we have hurt others and diminished our own dignity through our lack of love. It is all too easy for our examination of conscience and our confession to become “shopping lists” without reflecting deeply on why we sin. We should try to recognise our weaknesses and pray that through the celebration of this joyful Sacrament we will be able to put things right. 55


DAB-053 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 02/07/2018 12:32 Page 56

RECONCILIATION

A short act of contrition O my God, because you are so good, I am very sorry that I have sinned against you, and with the help of your grace I will try not to sin again.

THE WORDS OF ABSOLUTION The priest extends his hands over the penitent’s head and uses the following or similar words in absolution:

God, the Father of mercies, through the death and resurrection of his Son has reconciled the world to himself and sent the Holy Spirit among us for the forgiveness of sins. Through the ministry of the Church may God give you pardon and peace, and I absolve you from your sins, in the name of the Father, + and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Prayer attributed to an Eastern Mystic I was a revolutionary when I was young and all my prayer to God was: “Lord, give me the energy to change the world.”

As I approached middle age and realised that half my life had gone without me changing even one person, I changed my prayer to: “Lord, help me change those who are close to me, just my family and friends, and I’ll be happy.”

Now I’m an old man and my one and only prayer is this: “Lord, give me the grace to change myself.”

If I’d prayed this from the very start, I should not have wasted my life.

LECTIO DIVINA

LECTIO DIVINA a short guide to praying with the Scriptures

Lectio IS  Prayer

 Listening

 A moment of quiet

 A moment when God speaks to me  For every day  For life

Lectio is NOT  Study

 Reading a novel  Homework  Difficult  Rushed

Some tips

 Use a short passage of scripture – from one of the gospels is ideal

 If on your own ‘start small’ – perhaps just 5 or 10 minutes

57


DAB-053 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 02/07/2018 12:32 Page 58

The practice of Lectio Divina

LECTIO DIVINA

 Be still

 Choose a short text from the scriptures  Read it through – perhaps aloud

 Read it through – in silence – two or three times  Reflect on the text in your mind and heart

 Be open to a particular word or phrase that stays with you  Read through the text again  Reflect on the text again

 Be open for a prayer, or thought, that may come to you  Carry this through the day

 End with a short prayer and the sign of the cross Lectio with a group

 If you are doing Lectio Divina in a group, one person can read the text for the first time

 People may wish to share the word or phrase that came to them

 The text can then be read aloud once more, before people reflect on their own minds and hearts  One person can bring the time of Lectio Divina to a close with the prayer and sign of the cross God has something He wishes to say to me TODAY

God has something to say to me EACH day

He will say this to me in a SIMPLE way, through his WORD

RESOURCES FOR LECTIO

1. APP FOR YOUR PHONE

If you have a smartphone with Apple or Android, you can download an app called "Universalis" which costs £10.99. It puts all of the daily mass readings and the prayer of the church at your fingertips, and enables you to use these readings for Lectio at any time of the day.

2. BOOKS

A Bible with commentary helps to deepen your reading of the scriptures, even if it only has a minimum of commentary. This helps to give context to the reading and, importantly, gives cross-references to other related passages of Scripture in the Old and New Testaments.

Sacred Reading: The Ancient Art of Lectio Divina by Michael Casey, a Benedictine monk from Australia, with very helpful insights. You can buy this at the DABCEC bookshop or on Amazon and it costs around £10.

3. YOU TUBE

If you put "lectio divina" into the search on You Tube you will come up with a variety of different talks and resources. Look for one by Fr James Martin SJ.

4. WEBSITES

The website http://www.eatmyword.com/ contains guides to Lectio Divina, and has been put together by the Lay Community of St Benedict.

5. GROUPS

Some parishes have set up Lectio Divina groups, so why not ask around. If not please set one up. We can help!

PRAYER 2018 THE THEME FOR THE YEAR

Each year there is a theme for all pilgrimages coming to Lourdes. The theme this year is:

DO WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU

Information about the theme of the year is available from the Lourdes bookshop located near the Information Centre in the Domain.

PRAYER FOLDER

Each Hotel and Accueil group has a Prayer Folder in which prayers, petitions, thoughts, reflections even drawings can be recorded at any time.

The folders will be taken to Mass every day and placed on the sanctuary for the duration of the Mass, after which they will be taken back to the hotel. At the end of Mass on the final day of our pilgrimage the contents of all the folders will be taken and placed in the Grotto.

61


DAB-053 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 02/07/2018 12:32 Page 62

DAILY PRAYER

The whole of our pilgrimage is a time of prayer – everything we do and say can be offered to God in prayer, but it is good to meet together and put time aside for structured group prayer.

Our comprehensive programme in Lourdes means not every day is the same therefore whenever possible the chaplain will arrange a time of prayer for your group. So do check for notices about time for prayer in your group and if in doubt ask your chaplain. If there is no group prayer on any particular day, you can use this format for your own personal time of prayer. Wherever and whenever your group finds time to pray together a format provided here, and relates to the pattern of readings that we use at our daily mass in Lourdes. You may like to add the following depending on your situation.

 add songs, at the beginning and the end, you will find many options in this book.

 The silence noted at the start can be as long as suits your group, 5 seconds to a minute or so.  The reflection can be a prompt to conversation and a time for sharing together or in smaller groups. Or equally some quiet reflection time.

 The prayer can be led by the clergy of the group or lay people can also be encouraged to lead.

NB. Wednesday’s extended evening prayer, will need more preparation time prior to the prayer.

Reflection We have heard Jesus ask the fishermen to follow him.

As the fishermen who left everything, we bring our whole selves here, in hope.

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Mary said, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’

Reflection When we grieve, or are suffering in some other way, it can be hard to believe that we are not alone and that God is with us. What we feel is not outside God’s understanding and Jesus’ Mother can be particularly close to us at these times. St Bernadette had many sufferings and can pray for us and with us too. Even if we feel misunderstood by those around us, God knows and understands us. God loves us. God shares our burdens.

Mary said, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’

Luke 1:36-38 ‘Know this too: your kinswomen Elizabeth has, in her old age, herself conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible to God.’ ‘I am the handmaid of the Lord,’ said Mary, ‘let what you have said be done to me.’ And the angel left her. The Gospel of the Lord

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Mary said, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’

Reflection Again we see of signs of God in Elizabeth and Mary, signs of our God for whom ‘nothing is impossible’. We come to Lourdes and we visit the Grotto learning of the apparitions. Although we are not expected to believe in the apparitions as they were a personal revelation for Bernadette, many people do believe. For many the apparitions are a sign that God has not left us, that Mary continues to encourage us to meet and follow her son. What signs of God have you seen this week? Have you experienced God’s abundance in anyway? How do you respond?

When they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the wedding was all finished, the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman, why turn to me?

PRAYERS

Reflection We heard this reading at our opening mass this week. This scripture holds the Theme in Lourdes this year, Do whatever He tells you.

As we come to the end of our time together, in thinking about our return home, here are some words from Pope Francis that may help us to reflect on what has happened here to us, this week.

‘Let us not forget that Jesus asked his disciples to pay attention to details. The little detail that the wine was running out at the party. The little detail that one sheep was missing. The little detail of noticing the widow who offered her two small coins. The little detail of having spare oil for the lamps, should the bridegroom delay. The little detail of asking the disciples how many loaves of bread they had. The little detail of having a fire burning and a fish cooking as he waited for the disciples at daybreak.’ GE 144 (Pope Francis in his recent Apostolic Exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate - Rejoice and be Glad)

Where have you seen the work of God this week? Where have you seen signs of God’s abundance, signs of God’s overwhelming love for us.

Take a moment to reflect. How have you changed over the week? Perhaps this time away has helped you to see things in your life more clearly? Perhaps you are more comfortable with yourself, more rested? Have you in some way answered the call of Mary to do what her Son, Jesus tells you to do?

DAB-053 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 02/07/2018 12:32 Page 77

PRAYERS

The Church uses the term holiness to describe this action of following the call of Jesus. We perhaps reserve the term for saints like Bernadette, or those who are ordained, or religious sisters and brothers. Sometimes our narrow understanding of terms used in the Church means that we do not allow ourselves to relate closely with them, they do not have meaning in our own lives.

When you think of holiness what does it mean to you? Have you seen it this week in yourself or others? Talk with those near you about your thoughts on holiness and the call of Jesus.

Pope Francis tell us: ‘Do not be afraid of holiness. It will take away none of your energy, vitality or joy. On the contrary, you will become what the Father had in mind when he created you, and you will be faithful to your deepest self. To depend on God sets us free from every form of enslavement and leads us to recognize our great dignity.’ GE32

We know that we come closer to God when we pray together and so as people have done for hundreds of years we pray together a decade of the rosary for all the intentions in our hearts. Our Father; Hail Mary… x10; Glory Be…

(Suggestion - Take your handbook home with you and maybe in a week or so have another look at this reflection, consider the little details and the change you have experienced, and ask yourself again about holiness.) Intercessions (the opportunity to share any prayers you have in your heart at this time, aloud or in silence.)

Scripture

Leader:

All: All:

Mary said, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’

Mark 6:7-10 Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out in pairs giving them authority over the unclean spirits. And he instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff-no bread, no haversack, no coppers for their purses. They were to wear sandals but, he added, ‘Do not take a spare tunic.’ The Gospel of the Lord

Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Mary said, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’

Reflection Are you anxious about your journey home, about arrangements, about getting back to your routine? Can you place these concerns in the hands of God? Jesus challenges the Twelve to trust that their needs will be provided for as they set out to preach repentance. Has this time in Lourdes helped you to identify things you can do without, things that are not necessary for you. Has this time been a time of turning back to God in some way? Do you see God differently? 79

PROGRAMME IN LOURDES

Important • • •

• • • • •

85

Sometimes, it can happen that a service is moved to another place or times are altered. Please, therefore, check with your leader and your hotel notice board daily.

Your group chaplains and leaders will arrange visits to the Grotto and Baths. They may also make arrangements for booking visits to the places Bernadette knew. The ‘Chemin de Calvaire’ – Way of the Cross – above the town, may be used only by able pilgrims (the ‘High Stations’). It is exhausting. In addition, the paving is very poor. There is a beautiful Way of the Cross on the Prairie – this can be used by all pilgrims.

The Blessing of the sick, preceded by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in Procession, takes place daily at 5.00 pm in the Sanctuary.

The Marian Torchlight Procession takes place each night at 9.00 pm in the Sanctuary.

Please remain seated throughout all Masses, if possible. If you have to stand, please do not block the view of other pilgrims.

Please refrain from taking photographs during mass or at the Baths. There are official photographers for pilgrimage events.

At the request of the Rector of the Sanctuary of Lourdes, a collection will be taken at one of our celebrations of Mass while in Lourdes. The money collected goes towards the upkeep of the ‘Sanctuaries’ and the ‘Accueil Notre Dame’.

DONATIONS AND FUND RAISING

The Lourdes Fund exists to enable us to support pilgrims who do not have the financial means to travel to Lourdes. We wish to thank those kind people who have supported our Charity through individual donations, fund raising events and donations given through Appeals made in our parishes throughout the Diocese.

If you are a UK taxpayer, the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, as a registered charity, can claim back tax you have already paid on your gift at no extra cost to you. Please request a “Gift Aid� form from our office. Thank you.

FUND RAISING

We are all fortunate enough to be able to make it to Lourdes this year. The Pilgrimage would occasionally like to be able to support those who want to come to Lourdes but do not have the means to do so. If you think you could help with a Lourdes social fund raising event, we need you. Alternatively, if you would be prepared to organise a small fund raising event in your own parish, or help with an appeal, please let us know.

Please come and meet some of the fund raising team on Monday 31 July from 6.15pm in the bar at the Padoue. We are meeting for refreshments in the bar. We need your help!

LEGACIES TO ARUNDEL & BRIGHTON LOURDES PILGRIMAGE TRUST

Two important ways in which you can support the pilgrimage are the “Legacies” and “Gifts in Memory”. A legacy is a bequest to us in your Will. Legacies are a very flexible way of giving and can take many forms, including a fixed sum of money, a specific possession which could be auctioned to raise funds for us, or a percentage of what remains in your estate after you have made provision in your Will for your family and friends. Legacies can also take the form of a trust, which allows you to leave something to a loved one for their lifetime with the provision that it will pass to the Pilgrimage after they have died.

You could also consider making a donation specifically in memory of a loved one who has died, known as a Gift in Memory. These gifts do not need to be made in a Will and can be made at any time by contacting the Office. If you are considering leaving us a legacy in your Will, please request an information pack from the Office. We always recommend that you use a solicitor or professional adviser to prepare your Will. All donations and bequests should be made payable to: A&B Lourdes Pilgrimage and sent to:

Arundel & Brighton Lourdes Pilgrimage Office The Bothy Cowfold Road COOLHAM RH13 8QL Tel: 01403 740110 Email: office@ablourdes.org Web: www.ablourdes.org

We are pilgrims on a journey, we are trav’lers on the road. We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load.

I will hold the Christ-light for you in the night time of your fear. I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear.

I will weep when you are weeping, when you laugh I'll laugh with you. I will share your joy and sorrow till we've seen this journey through.

When we sing to god in heaven, we shall find such harmony, born of all we've known together of Christ's love and agony.

Will you let me be your servant, let me be as Christ to you? Pray that I might have the grace to let you be my servant, too.

Gospel Mark 1:16-20 As he was walking along by the Sea of Galilee he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net in the lake – for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you into fishers of men.’ And at once they left their nets and followed him. Going on a little further, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they too were in their boat, mending their nets. He called them at once and, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the men he employed, they went after him. Homily

Recessional Praise to the Holiest in the height, and in the depth be praise; in all his words most wonderful, most sure in all his ways! O loving wisdom of our God! When all was sin and shame, a second Adam to the fight and to the rescue came.

O wisest love! that flesh and blood, which did in Adam fail, should strive afresh against the foe, should strive, and should prevail; And that the highest gift of grace should flesh and blood refine: God's presence and his very self, and essence all-divine.

O generous love! that he who smote in man for man the foe, the double agony in man for man should undergo.

And in the garden secretly, and on the Cross on high, should teach his brethren, and inspire to suffer and to die.

Praise to the Holiest in the height, and in the depth be praise; in all his words most wonderful, most sure in all his ways! John Henry Newman (1801–90) 103

Gospel

SATURDAY 28 JULY

John 2:1-11

There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited. When they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the wedding was all finished, the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman, why turn to me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. ‘Draw some out now,’ he told them, ‘and take it to the steward.’ They did this; the steward tasted the water, and it turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from – only the servants who had drawn the water knew – the steward called the bridegroom and said, ‘People generally serve the best wine first, and keep the cheaper sort till the guests have had plenty to drink; but you have kept the best wine till now.

This was the first of the signs given by Jesus: it was given at Cana in Galilee. He let his glory be seen, and his disciples believed in him. Homily

Christ has no body now but yours no hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He looks, compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good Yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are His body

O come to the altar, The Fathers arms are open wide, Forgiveness was bought with, The precious blood of Jesus Christ.

Leave behind your regrets and mistakes, come today there's no reason to wait, Jesus is calling. Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy, from the ashes a new life is born, Jesus is calling. Oh what a saviour, isn't he wonderful, sing alleluia Christ is risen, bow down before him, for he is lord of all, sing alleluia Christ is risen. [repeat]

Bear your cross as you wait for the crown tell the world the treasure you’ve found

INTERNATIONAL MASS IN ST PIUS X BASILICA AT 9.30 a.m.

Reading Kings 4:42-44 A man came from Baal-shalishah, bringing Elisha, the man of God, bread from the first-fruits, twenty barley loaves and fresh grain in the ear. ‘Give it to the people to eat,’ Elisha said. But his servant replied, ‘How can I serve this to a hundred men?’ ‘Give it to the people to eat’ he insisted ‘for the Lord says this, “Thy will eat and have some left over.”’ He served them; they ate and had some over, as the Lord had said.

Gospel John 6:1-15 Jesus went off to the other side of the Sea of Galilee – or of Tiberius – and a large crowd followed him, impressed by the signs he gave by curing the sick. Jesus climbed the hillside, and sat down there with his disciples. It was shortly before the Jewish feast of Passover.

Looking up, Jesus saw the crowds approaching and said to Philip, ‘Where can we buy some bread for these people to eat?’ He only said this to test Philip; he himself knew exactly what he was going to do. Philip answered, ‘Two hundred denarii would only buy enough to give them a small piece each.’ One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said ‘There is a small boy here with five barley loaves and two fish; but what is that between so many?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Make the people sit down.’ There was plenty of grass there, and as five thousand men sat down. Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and gave them out to all who were sitting ready; he then did the same with the fish, giving out as much as was wanted. When they had eaten enough he said to the disciples, ‘Pick up the pieces left over, so that nothing gets wasted.’ So they picked them up, and filled twelve hampers with scraps left over from the meal of five barley loaves. The people seeing this sign that he had given, said, ‘This really is the prophet who is to come into the world.’ Jesus, who could see they were about to come and take him by force and make him king, escaped back to the hills by himself. 115

Reading James 5:13-16 If any one of you is in trouble, he should pray; if anyone is feeling happy, he should sing a psalm. If one of you is ill, he should send for the elders of the church, and they must anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord and pray over him. The prayer of faith will save the sick man and the Lord will raise him up again; and if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. So confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, and this will cure you; the heartfelt prayer of a good man works very powerfully.

Gospel Luke 18: 35 – 43 Now as he drew near to Jericho there was a blind man sitting at the side of the road begging. When he heard the crowd going past he asked what was it was all about, and they told him that Jesus the Nazarene was passing by. So he called out ‘Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me’. The people in front scolded him and told him to keep quiet, but he shouted all the louder, ‘Son of David, have pity on me’. Jesus stopped and ordered them to bring the man to him, and when he came up, asked him, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ ‘Sir,’ he replied ‘let me see again.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Receive your sight. Your faith has saved you.’ And instantly his sight returned and he followed him praising God, and all the people who saw it gave praise to God for what had happened. 121

You shall crawl on your belly and eat dust every day of your life. I will make you enemies of each other: you and the woman, your offspring and her offspring. I will crush your head and you will strike its heel.’

The man named his wife ‘Eve’ because she was the mother of all those who live.

Psalm Here I am Here I am. Here I am. Here I am, O Lord, to do your will. Here I am. Here I am. Here I am, O Lord, to do your will. 1. You do not ask for sacrifice and offerings, but an open ear. You do not ask for holocaust and victim, Instead, here am I.

Gospel Luke 1: 26 – 38 The angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. He went in and said to her, ‘Rejoice, so highly favoured! The Lord is with you.’ She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean, but the angel said to her, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Listen! You are to conceive and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David; he will rule over the House of Jacob for ever and his reign will have no end.’ Mary said to the angel, ‘But how can this come about, since I am a virgin?’ ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you,’ the angel answered, ‘and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God. Know this too: your kinswoman Elizabeth has, in her old age, herself conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible to God.’ ‘I am the handmaid of the Lord,’ said Mary, ‘let what you have said be done to me.’ And the angel left her.

O Bread of Heaven

O food of life, thou who dost give the pledge of immortality; I live; no, ‘tis not I that live; God gives me life, God lives in me: he feeds my soul, he guides my ways, and every grief with joy repays.

O bond of love, that dost unite the servant to his living Lord; could I dare live, and not requite such love then death were meet reward: I cannot live unless to prove some love for such unmeasured love.

Beloved Lord in heaven above, there, Jesus, thou awaitest me; to gaze on thee with changeless love, yes, thus I hope, thus shall it be: for how can he deny me heaven who here on earth himself hath given?

The Summons

Will you come and follow me if I but call your name? Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same? Will you let my love be shown, will you let my name be known, Will you let my life be grown in you and you in me? Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name? Will you care for cruel and kind and never be the same? Will you risk the hostile stare should your life attract or scare? Will you let me answer prayer in you and you in me?

Will you let the blinded see if I but call your name? Will you set the prisoners free and never be the same? Will you kiss the leper clean and do such as this unseen, And admit to what I mean in you and you in me?

Will you love the “you” you hide if I but call your name? Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same? Will you use the faith you’ve found to reshape the world around Through my sight and touch and sound in you and you in me? Lord, your summons echoes true when I but call your name! Let me turn and follow you and never be the same In your company I’ll go where your love and footsteps show. Thus I’ll move and live and grow in you and you in me.

Reading 1 Corinthians 12: 3 – 7 No one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord’ unless he is under the influence of the Holy Spirit. There is a variety of gifts but always the same Spirit; there are all sorts of service to be done, but always to the same Lord; working is all sorts of different ways in different people, it is the same God who is working in all of them. The particular way in which the Spirit is given to each person is for a good purpose.

Psalm Send forth your spirit Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and renew the face of the earth. 1.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O Lord how great you are! How many are your works, O Lord, the earth is full of your riches!

Gospel Mark 6:7-13 Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out in pairs giving them authority over the unclean spirits. And he instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff – no bread, no haversack, no coppers for their purses. They were to wear sandals but, he added, ‘Do not take a spare tunic.’ And, he said to them, ‘If you enter a house anywhere, stay there until you leave the district. And if any place does not welcome you and people refuse to listen to you, as you walk away shake the dust from under your feet as a sign to them.’ So they set off to preach repentance; and they cast out many devils, and anointed many sick people with oil and cured them.

The fruit of the vine we have turned into wine offering this also for you to bless. May they now become the food that makes us one nourishing our souls and bringing life. This wine will become the blood of Christ. For us, our saviour was sacrificed. Now we offer you all the good things that we do, trying to love others as you love us. Bless and break us, too, so we become something new take our lives and use us to do your work. Then we shall become the body of Christ for you, our Saviour, our sacrifice.

We thought him punished, struck down and afflicted by God; yet ours the sorrows, ours were the griefs he bore. For our sins he was pierced and wounded, and through his suff’rings we are made whole. Though he was faultless, the Lord God let him suffer, he was made victim, his life an atonement. By his anguish shall many be made righteous, his immolation will wipe out our sins.

Open now the crystal fountain, whence the healing stream doth flow; let the fire and cloudy pillar lead me all my journey through; strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer, be thou still my strength and shield.

Just as I am, though tossed about with many a conflict, many a doubt; Fighting within, and fears without, O Lamb of God, I come, I come! Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind; Sight, riches, healing of the mind; Yes, all I need, in Thee to find, O Lamb of God, I come, I come! Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; Because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come, I come! Just as I am, Thy love unknown has broken every barrier down; Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

So some have come who need your help and some have come to make amends, as hands which which shaped and saved the world are present in the touch of friends. Lord, let your Spirit meet us here to mend the body, mind and soul, to disentangle peace from pain and make your broken people whole.

The Magnificat (Lk 1:46-55) My soul glorifies the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour. He looks on his servant in her lowliness; henceforth all ages will call me blessed. The Almighty works marvels for me. Holy is his name! His mercy is from age to age, on those who fear him.

He puts forth his arm in strength and scatters the proud-hearted. He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly. He fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty. He protects Israel, his servant, remembering his mercy, the mercy promised to our fathers, to Abraham and his sons for ever. Glory be to the Father...
