I have a couple of pictures like this one. People still go in their thousands ...so peaceful and beautiful surroundings .......if you can turn a blind eye to the commercial side of it!
Took grandad last year.Lowered him in the Waters in his chair when we raised him out,He was no different,but their was two new tyres on his wheelchair
I would say thats the Pavillion end rather than the Nursery end.
I wonder if those 'joke'comments would have been made if the pilgrim site had been Mecca!
A Wigan church group in Mecca, Vb? That would be funny!
Let the idiots sneer. As my Wigan grandmother used to say, they will come to their cake and milk soon enough.
I think you know what I mean GW...
I'm bloody sure I don't.
My level of idiocy may be debatable M8icheal but i've never been a sneerer. Someone told me laughter is the best medicine...O'h... and tolerance.
Although a catholic, I have never been to Lourdes. Thousands of sick people have returned from Lourdes without having had a miraculous cure, but the enormous beneficial spiritual effect that the visit has had on many of them, in dealing with their differing infirmities, must have been of very considerable lasting benefit to each one of them.
I've visited Lourdes many times. I can say that I have always found a place of devotion and peace ,where people gain solace and courage to deal with disability be that physical or sadness because of a loss or other difficulties.
The benifit of visiting is unexplainable,but I thank that everyone who makes the pilgrimage gains for the experience.
my mother is on this photo she is 7th from the left on the 1st row standing got a red cardigan on
Does anyone know the name of the lady sitting in a wheelchair, centre front. Her legs are bandaged.
I went to Lourdes a decade or so later with a lady who lived at Ince and the one I mention here has a look of her. By the time we went she was bedridden. She travelled all the way using the Jumbulance and was on a trolley bed for the journey. You are right though about the peace Lourdes brings. We may have had moans and complaints on the way there, but not on the way back.
Does anyone know the name of you young girl pictured 8th from the left in the green dress with dark cardigan?
