The author, whose family has participated in over seventy pilgrimages, offers a comprehensive travelling companion for all pilgrims and visitors. Included features are: information on travel and accommodation; an A-Z of places to see in and around Lourdes; ideas for extra days out in the region; maps, street plans, and walks; the story of Bernadette; and prayers for pilgrims.
The format for the Every Pilgrim's Guides is tried and tested and combines a mix of practical information for travellers, the history and background of the places featured, plus devotional commentary, prayers and readings appropriate for pilgrims today. Lourdes is universally known throughout the Catholic world and many hundreds of pilgrimage groups visit each year from Britain and Ireland. This new volume gives a detailed A-Z guide to all the places and events in Lourdes that pilgrims will want to experience, tells the engaging story of Bernadette, includes a section of prayers and readings and features other places of interest nearby for extra days out.
