LOURDES The Diary of Grace #11 "I had tears in my eyes" - Annelyse

Journal des grâces

AnnelyseIt is the first pilgrimage to Lourdes for Annelyse from the diocese of Nantes (France). She tells us about the grace in the smile of others, and also the grace of the happiness she felt in going to the Baths in the sanctuary.


Annelyse: "When I arrived, I felt the joy that was in everyone. My daily life is quite banal. When I arrived, I said to myself Yes, there is much more joy, happiness, everyone smiles, there are smiles everywhere, and this really touched me… For me, a grace is above all the smile of others. As for the Baths, no words can describe how moving it was for me. I had tears in my eyes when I went into the water. It is my first time in Lourdes and I went to the Baths. I was really happy and at the same time, I didn’t realise what was happening. I was full of happiness. And then, in leaving, even more !"
