|Name of the product||Statue of Our Lady of Lourdes|
This statuette of Our Lady of Lourdes, with its height of 15 cm, can find a place everywhere, on the nightstand, a fireplace, an office; She can also accompany you on a trip. Despite the smallness, this statuette is not lacking in finesse in detail and expression. The look of the Blessed Virgin Mary pointing up reminds us that:
- Mary comes from Heaven,
-It is from Heaven, from the Eternal Father, that Mary has received all her prerogatives,
- Heaven is our true homeland towards which all our desires must tend.
This statue can be offered as a first communion gift.
This statue of Our Lady corresponds well to the descriptions of St. Bernadette: a rose on each foot, a rosary on the left arm, the wide belt, the veil that falls very low. But that would not have stopped Saint Bernadette from crying, contemplating the original of this statuette of Our Lady of Lourdes: "It is not yet that, Mary is really more beautiful." We must resign ourselves to being unable to reproduce, here below, the beauties of Heaven, of which the Virgin Mary is the Queen.
Beyond the aesthetic aspect of this statuette of Our Lady of Lourdes, let us not forget the role of statues and images, to take us beyond the work of art to go to the mystery of which the religious statue wants to be the symbol, to the message that the Blessed Virgin entrusted to Saint Bernadette in the grotto of Lourdes: a call to conversion by prayer of the rosary and penance.
Lourdes is also miracles, miracles that manifest all the merciful compassion of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who, according to the words of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus, the Little Flower, is more Mother than Queen. Above all things, Mary wants to exercise his compassion, on souls wounded by sin. Who will be able to say all the spiritual healings, all the inner consolations obtained by the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes?
About the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin in Lourdes, we remind you of some historical details.
The Holy Virgin appeared to Saint Bernadette Soubirous in 1858 in Massabielle in a cave located in a meander of the Gave River. She presented herself in the girl's language:
« Que soy immaculada conceptiou » that is: I am the Immaculate Conception, a title that had just been defined by Pius IX four years ago and which means that Mary was preserved from the stain of original sin from the first moment of its existence. This privilege was granted to us in favor of divine maternity. It is indeed through Mary that we have received Jesus Christ the Savior of our souls.
Mary appeared dressed in white and surrounded by a blue ribbon, which was the clothing of the members of the local congregation of the children of Mary who gathered the young pious girls from the neighborhood. She carries a rosary in her hand to urge us to recite this beautiful meditative prayer that puts us in touch with the mysteries of the life of Christ through the intercession of her Blessed Mother.
The message of Lourdes is an invitation to prayer and penance, that is, to return to God by confessing sins and observing the 10 commandments. To attest to her divine mission, Our Lady of Lourdes predicted the erection of a basilica in this wild and eccentric place, as well as the miraculous healing of many patients. These prophecies have been realized punctually, and the office of medical findings still records many miracles authenticated today with great professionalism. The pilgrimage to the basilica and the Grotto of Massabielle drains countless crowds.
