A Rosary Journey to Lourdes with Mary
Come on a spiritual pilgrimage with Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox and take a rosary journey to Lourdes with Mary! Lourdes is in Southwestern France where Mary, the Mother of God appeared to a young 14-year girl Bernadette Soubirous 18 times from Feb – July in the year 1858. Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox have had the privilege of leading numerous pilgrim groups to Lourdes. Their experiences in Lourdes have helped them grow closer to Mary and Jesus.
On today’s journey, you will discover:
- What the rosary meant for Bernadette
- We will also talk about the role of the Rosary for pilgrims who visit Lourdes today
- Why the rosary is important and powerful for us.
We are so grateful to this month’s sponsors, Ernest & Dorothy Morris, who made this podcast episode possible.

St. Pope John Paul II’s Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes:
Hail Mary, poor and humble Woman, Blessed by the Most High! Virgin of hope, dawn of a new era, We join in your song of praise, to celebrate the Lord’ s mercy, to proclaim the coming of the Kingdom and the full liberation of humanity.
Hail Mary, lowly handmaid of the Lord, Glorious Mother of Christ! Faithful Virgin, holy dwelling-place of the Word, Teach us to persevere in listening to the Word, and to be docile to the voice of the Spirit, attentive to his promptings in the depths of our conscience and to his manifestations in the events of history.
Hail Mary, Woman of sorrows, Mother of the living! Virgin spouse beneath the Cross, the new Eve, Be our guide along the paths of the world. Teach us to experience and to spread the love of Christ, to stand with you before the innumerable crosses on which your Son is still crucified.
Hail Mary, woman of faith, First of the disciples! Virgin Mother of the Church, help us always to account for the hope that is in us, with trust in human goodness and the Father’ s love. Teach us to build up the world beginning from within: in the depths of silence and prayer, in the joy of fraternal love, in the unique fruitfulness of the Cross.
Holy Mary, Mother of believers, Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
