A scholarly look at Lourdes and why it has become and stayed a major religious city  Nov 8, 2008
Lourdes has become a religious center of the world for Catholicism, and "Lourdes for Today and Tomorrow" takes a look at the city, a prime choice for pilgrimage. Around a century and a half ago, the Virgin Mary appeared as an apparition to Bernadette Soubirous, an event which has given Lourdes its status. Jacques Perrier tells of Lourdes and its many missions which embark on the idea to help humanity as a whole, making "Lourdes for Today and Tomorrow" a scholarly look at Lourdes and why it has become and stayed a major religious city.
 
Lourdes and the Mission of the Church  Sep 16, 2008
Lourdes for Today and Tomorrow, written by the Bishop of Tarbes and Lourdes, celebrates the 150th anniversary of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin to Bernadette Soubirous. Bishop Perrier examines ways in which specific missions of the Church emerged at Lourdes and how they developed. Topics include ministering to the sick, those with disabilities, and the marginalized; promoting Christian unity and interfaith dialogue; and reaching out to young people. Each of the 12 chapters contains relevant historical background linking the missions of the Church and Lourdes and closes with a reflection from someone intimately connected with the shrine.

In the chapter on the mission of the Church and sick people, Perrier points out that Lourdes is a living example of Jesus' words, "I was sick and you visited (welcomed) me." He provides a brief overview of New Testament references to healing the sick and highlights humanitarian works of the Church over the centuries. He also covers Church teaching on suffering and misconceptions about the sacraments of the sick.

The personal experience is written by Yann Pivet, pilgrimage director of the Lourdes Cancer Espérance (L.C.E.). He tells the story of his own cancer and that of his wife, Viviane, whose illness was the more serious. The couple made their first L.C.E. pilgrimage in 1995 and their last together in 2001, when Viviane was carried on a stretcher to receive the anointing of the sick at the Church of St. Bernadette. By that time the Pivets had met Anne-Marie, an L.C.E. worker who voluntarily stayed with the family, giving care during the final year of Viviane's life. During his first pilgrimage after Viviane's death, Yann accepted the invitation to take over as pilgrimage director.
