Forced to gather at a distance in front of the grotto of the shrine of Lourdes for two years because of the COVID-19 health crisis, pilgrims and visitors will again be able to enter the grotto this week. The shrine rejoices, saying pilgrims will once more be able to “pass in the hollow of the Rock of Massabielle, under the feet of the Virgin Mary, Immaculate Conception, touch the rock and approach the source.”
