THE RAPHAEL RECORDER
Raphael Recorder - Edition 2. May/June 2020
Thanks to our Director for sharing the second edition of ‘The Raphael Recorder’.
We are indebted to Rev Fr Richard Andrew, Parish Priest at Holy Trinity Church, Brook Green for his synopsis of the Theme in Lourdes for 2020: I am the Immaculate Conception.
This phrase helped to convince Fr Peyramale of the veracity of the apparitions experienced by Bernadette. She was illiterate and had not heard of the expression while learning catechism in preparation for her First Holy Communion.
Although the Sanctuary of Lourdes has opened its gates, entry to the Domaine is limited to locals and those living within 100km of the Sanctuary. This is to comply with the restrictions on travel imposed by the French Government. The Baths remain closed.
In our next edition we hope to include contributions from more pilgrims. So please write something of interest or supply a photograph that we can all share.
