World Youth Day - Lourdes

In the early part of our journey to World Youth Day we ventured to Lourdes, France. One of the episodes from CATHOLICISM – “Our Tainted Nature’s Solitary Boast: Mary, the Mother of God.” Mary is one of those subjects in the Church that not only engages the theological intellect, but offers so much more on so many other levels. As mother – God’s mother – she gives this sense of completing the human family and its mysterious connection to the divine. And her place in salvation history offers a very profound and tangible dimension to our faith through miracles, apparitions and the beautiful stories that follow from them.

During one of the catechesis for World Youth Day we had the opportunity to hear Fr. Robert Baron atthe Love and Life Center.

Below is the latest exclusive preview from Fr. Barron’s CATHOLICISM project coming out this Fall (2011). This clip tells the story of one such Marian apparition that occurred in Lourdes, France in 1858. Enjoy!
