Final Rosary at Lourdes Grotto - 10/23/17
Nearly five thousand faithful traveled to Lourdes in the south of France on October 21-22-23, 2017 for the Society of St. Pius X’s annual pilgrimage in honor of Christ the King.
On Monday October 23, as the Solemn High Mass came to a close, one final procession returned to the grotto for the Rosary that would close the pilgrimage with the renewal of the Consecration to Christ the King read by the District Superior, Fr. Christian Bouchacourt with his two Assistants, Frs. Emeric Baudot and Loïc Duverger.
Eventually the District Superior thanked all those who had helped to organize the pilgrimage and invited the faithful to come back next year, but above all to return home with renewed zeal and unfailing fidelity to Our Lady’s simple and ardent requests, repeated both in Fatima and in Lourdes: “Recite the Rosary! Do penance!”
