Recuperating....


My experience in Lourdes has been one that I will never forget… I felt great love. Love and a superior energy that you get from the powerful presence of everyone there and even more so from the patients who suffer from all kinds of diseases who were there to received our humble help… We left with the Pilgrimage Dioceses of Castellon (Spain), the reason being that my friend is from the village of Torreblanca. We were a total of 600 people that of which 100 were sick patients the rest included doctors, nurses, cooks, priests, helper’s etc. it is an impressive organisation. Our mission was to participate as transporters this meant transporting the sick in their wheelchairs, or chariots to the different prayers, the grout, the bathing baths, but most important to have discussions with them to simply talk to them, share with them, give them hope, love, courage and of course hugs and kisses something that most of them are missing in their every daily lives, during a week of prayers, masses and pilgrimage… I learned many things there and had some amazing miracles happen to me personally...
It was a great adventure...I am very greatful.
I thank you all for your wonderful comments and support...

I don't know if there is anything more beautiful and uplifting than the gift of kindness amongst strangers and friends.

This is very inspiring. I agree with Kala...one of my favorite bumper stickers I've seen is "Practice random acts of kindness".

God bless you also for that what you are doing for the sick and needy. Thanks for sharing. Lourdes does have this effect on people ... I was there a few years ago and one is overwhelmed by this spirit.
