Excerpt from The Appearances of the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Grotto of Lourdes: Personal Souvenirs of an Eyewitness
Lord! He whom thou lovest is sick. Here, above all, as God goes on His way in glorious disguise, com ing back to the Tabernacle where He dwells, vaster crowds than even those wich welcomed as He came to the city of His father David, greet Him with the same cry, Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord Here once more, then, as Jesus goes by, the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk, and the poor have the Gospel preached to them.
The story told in this volume is largely the story of a man who did not believe these things to be possible, who was living in Lourdes when first Mary manifested herself to a little child, and who, dwelling in the company of the intellectuals of the little provincial town, thought it all very pretty and very poetical, but of course not true. 'we have found, said Philip long ago, Him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write. And Nathaniel said to him, 'can anything of good come from Nazareth P Philip saith to him, Come and see. 80 he too, came and saw. He saw Bernadette in ecstasy he watched her as she talked. Voicelessly with the Invisible; and the book tells the rest.
