I undertook my pilgrimage to Lourdes 10 years before being received into the Catholic church, which with hindsight was a significant waypoint on my faith journey.
I expected a sombre, staid, solemn experience, I was “ doing it for the family”.
On arrival I was greeted by people of all ages and all nations engaging in a loud and excited, celebration of faith.
It reminded me of Glastonbury 1998!!!.
I enjoyed walking the town of an evening on my own , visiting the grotto and then welcomed into one the many bars by new friends from across Europe.
Our family felt safe and loved.
