" It would be an understatement to say that the bishops of France just like to come to Lourdes for their biannual plenary Assemblies! These are not just ‘additional meetings’ in the vicinity of the Grotto, but genuine moments of discernment. From 4 to 9 November, the Assembly will meet in prayer and reflection on topical social and political issues, with deep concern for our brethren in the East. Many topics will be shared, for example echoes of the first session of the Synod on the Family. Another important event will be the presence of representatives of French Seminaries with the bishops in Lourdes for a national pilgrimage from 8 to 10 November. Pray for the future priests we so badly need!"
