The Story of Lourdes and St. Bernadette
At the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, you will find the majestic town of Lourdes, France. Every year, thousands of people make the pilgrimage to Lourdes to experience the healing powers and waters of Mother Mary. On February 11, 1858, a young peasant girl, Bernadette, was fetching firewood with her sister and friend when a beautiful woman appeared to her at the Massabielle grotto and requested that she return to the grotto. After a number of visits, Mary revealed herself to Bernadette as the "Immaculate Conception." During on of Bernadette's visits with Mary, she instructed Bernadette to dig in a certain spot and to drink from the small spring that began to bubble up. Soon after, countless reports of cures from drinking the water were reported. Since 1858, Lourdes has been one of the most frequented Marian sites as people from all over the world make their way to experience the healing waters of Lourdes.
Event though Mother Mary has not made a physical appearance in Lourdes in a very long time, Mary's presence is felt throughout the village in the grotto, in the sanctuaries, in the baths, while walking along the streets and the Stations of the Cross, and through the shops and restaurants where the dedication and love for Mary runs deep and unending.

I love how the sacred sites, angels, and masters call to me to come join them in these holy places of love, peace, and renewal and the transformations, initiations, and enlightenment we each go through on these journeys inspires and awakens me and fills my heart with so much love and joy. This is why I do this, and why I've coordinated sacred pilgrimages through over a dozen countries and why I am so excited to share Lourdes with this divine sisterhood.
In 2015, I coordinated a sacred journey to France, which included two days in Lourdes. While I have been Lourdes before, this tour was different. Mother Mary's loving energy was so present and the messages, healings, and the many sacred experiences from a holy baptism, to walking the stations of the cross, to prayer and meditation, to sacred ceremonies with our group and the entire city, and to feeling so very loved and filled joy from Mother Mary, Jesus, and Archangel Michael were miraculous and inspiring. So much so, that before I left Lourdes, I was directed by Mother Mary to return with a divine sisterhood for a week long sacred pilgrimage so that these amazing women will have the opportunity to also experience the miracles of Lourdes and to aid in the healing of women throughout the world, as well as humanity itself.
My greatest desire is helping others to heal their hearts and souls, especially through sacred pilgrimages. I am very passionate about traveling to sacred places to connect with the energies of these sites to assist with helping our growing divine sisterhood in healing their pains, releasing their traumas, and transforming their lives in the most loving and empowering ways. Through the last 20 years, I’ve trained and worked with some of the most powerful and talented spiritual teachers and healers which has provided me with years of experience which I love to share with others.
I have been to Lourdes several times and each time miracles happen and more of the Divine power of the Mother is revealed to me. This is a place of rest and healing but most of all a place where we are reintroduced to the truth and glory of who we are as spiritual beings.
I have wanted to go back for a long time, but it wasn't until now that the Mother made this request to bring 12 women, a divine sisterhood to walk the Stations of the Cross, to be baptized in the Holy water of Lourdes, to release, heal and refill with the pure warrior spirit that enveloped Bernadette's heart. This is such a unique opportunity - to be in Lourdes with all its splendor and glory, to participate in ancient ceremonies, to connect with spirit, and have fun being ourselves and sharing our authentic selves with each other.
It is truly remarkable to see the transformation that occurs within each person as we travel to Sacred places. We are always guided by the Heavenly Host to make change, to heal and to share all that's revealed to us with the rest of the planet. The love, joy, healing and magic that happens brings us all close to our true and holy nature, and I love that. www.RobinRose.co
