The wonderful story of Scandinavian pilgrimages


Scandinavian pilgrims from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland are in Lourdes from 13 to 20 October. They are always a breath of fresh air. Their small number, about sixty in all, in no way diminishes the strength of their testimony and their perseverance in bringing sick pilgrims from the arctic regions. Despite a predominant atheism in their countries, they have been coming to Lourdes for more than forty years.
