Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help

Don Marco recommends making this powerful novena. Let's pray it for the Christians in Iraq.

In dangers, in hardships, in every doubt,
think of Mary, call out to Mary.
Keep her in your mouth, keep her in your heart.
Follow the example of her life
and you will obtain the favour of her prayer.

~St. Bernard

Dear Elena
My mother and I are travelling to Lourdes from Australia and we were very excited when we came across your blog on Lourdes. We thoroughly enjoyed your blog. Can you please recommend a place to stay in Lourdes between Aug 14-17 for two mature women who speaks no french.

Dear Sela and Ema,

I would highly recommend the Astoria hotel. It is run by Irish people. Also, there is the Saint-Saveur, which is very nice and right near the grotto. The St Francois d'Assise is nice, too. Even in the French hotels, most of the people speak some English. But the Astoria is at the top of my list.

Have a blessed trip and my Our Lady protect you on your way!

Thank you for your kind words!
