Benches at the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes
Say a prayer with sophomore biology major Elizabeth Jasek at a set of benches near Our Lady’s Grotto.
“Each day began like a pilgrimage. My walk from Welsh Family Hall to this spot began with quiet intercessions. Meeting with these faithful friends, our moments of communal prayer were all the more powerful, even on cold and early mornings. Sitting in a circle we would greet each other, offer up specific intentions, and begin to pray.”
As we celebrate Mary’s willingness to bring Christ to the world, how can we recognize our Holy Mother at work in our own lives, nurturing our faith and friendships so that we may grow closer to God?
