So today is the 150th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Lourdes.
After one of the appearances of Our Lady, St. Bernadette stood up and repeated Our Lady’s words to her, shouting at the bystanders: “Penance, Penance, Penance!”
Women are an inspiration to men and sometimes are a tad more courageous. Resolute and courageous religious commitment is something a girl should not have to teach a big strapping man. But so it was and so it is.
So who do you think suffers more resolutely, men or women?
