Torchlight Procession in Lourdes

Torchlight Procession – the Light of Christ, our candles held high as we invoke our Lady’s help and strength.


I light a candle
and suddenly the world around me changes.

I am reminded once again
that one small flame
is all it takes
to let the darkness know it cannot win.
(Dr Ruth Patterson)
