One Thursday, February 11, 1858, when she was sent with her younger sister and a friend to gather firewood, a very beautiful Lady appeared to her above a rose bush in a grotto called Massabielle.

I can't make miracles, even though I can now say I have been to Lourdes, the second most visited place in France after Paris. Years ago, in Reims, famous for its own cathedral, I was treated to an extraordinarily bad hotel experience.
