Let us turn to the Virgin Mary with a thought for Lourdes.

Our thoughts are with the pilgrims in Lourdes who were evacuated as a result of flash floods that hit the town over the weekend. The Grotto where Our Lady appeared to St Bernadette Soubirous in 1858 was under three feet of water but is expected to reopen on Tuesday.

We share the words of Pope Benedict XVI from Sunday:

Let us turn to the Virgin Mary with a thought for Lourdes, the victim of flash floods which inundated the grotto where the Madonna had appeared.
