After lunch we take a walking tour to sites associated with St. Bernadette like the Boly Mill, where Bernadette was born, and to the Cachot, an abandoned prison where Bernadettes family lived. After dinner in the hotel participate in the fabulous evening torchlight procession in the Sanctuary. Candlelight Procession As early as 18th February 1858, the day of the third Apparition, one of the two people accompanying Bernadette had carried a candle. After this, Bernadette herself always came with a candle. The iconic Lourdes Torchlight Procession, known throughout the world, was introduced in Lourdes in 1863 by Father Marie-Antoine, a Capuchin also known as the Saint of Toulouse. The Marian Procession is the most popular celebration in Lourdes. During the Procession, and depending on the day, the pilgrims recite the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful or Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. At the beginning of each decade, a few words in several languages give direction to the prayer so that it does not become a monotonous repetition. The Ave Maria and other hymns can be heard in many languages. In the serenity of the evening, each pilgrim carries his or her own personal intentions as the prayer gathers the assembly of all nations, people and languages with the Virgin Mary, like the disciples in the Cenacle after the Ascension of Christ. The procession always takes place regardless of the weather.

Both the high and low stations are an opportunity to experience Christs unconditional love for us all as we pray together on the passion through Our Ladys eyes.
