Part of of the hospitalier service is demanding. Last evening we were asked to greet and transport the large train filled with Italian pilgrims. They had travelled over 40 hours to arrive at Lourdes at 9:30p.m.
Along with many other volunteers, our Marianist pilgrims greeted the pilgrims with humility. Many were tired and hungry. A good number were maladies who needed greater attention and assistance moving to their transport.
