Our theme for the year:
“Go in the peace of Christ !”
May Mary gather you all, from around the world, in this School of prayer, of meetings and of evangelization which is the Rosary!
During this year when we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the apparitions in Lourdes, the sick and the pilgrims will accomplish the 100th pilgrimage of the Rosary to Lourdes.
This pilgrimage is a realization of this school which is the Rosary: to pray, with Mary, to Christ the Saviour of the world; to meet the pilgrims who converge to Lourdes to know each other better, to share about the Christian life so diverse and yet unified by the same Gospel and finally, to live with compassion among the sick pilgrims.
A pilgrimage is a visible sign of our Christian life, everywhere in the world where we choose to follow Christ for He is “the Truth, the Way and the Life”.
Along this way of life which is Christ, we each walk towards hope. No one is alone because we walk with all our brothers and sisters who have chosen the same road.
The travelling and the solidarity, both energized by the breath of the Holy Spirit, form the essential of our Christian life at the School of the Rosary.
So, let us rise and let us walk to meet Christ and our brothers and sisters everywhere in the world.
With Mary, let us hear the call: “Go in the Peace of Christ”
