Today’s topics: Knights of Malta pilgrimage to Lourdes for the Sick
Summary of today’s show: Each year, the Knights of Malta make a pilgrimage to Lourdes, France, the site of an apparition of the Blessed Mother to St. Bernadette, bringing a group of malades–people afflicted with various ailments–and their caregivers for an experience of spiritual healing, and in some rare cases, even physical healings. Craig Gibson and Joseph Milano of the Knights of Malta in Boston, as well as Susan Kiely, a malade, and her husband Barry, join Fr. Chip Hines and Michael Lavigne to discuss the upcoming pilgrimage, how the grappling with disease and the idea of pilgrimage affect their faith; the logistics of the pilgrimage; and the results that they are seeking.
