Today was the penultimate day of our Lourdes pilgrimage 2019. The day began with a Mass where pilgrims could receive an anointing. This is a powerful symbol of healing for those who are seriously ill in mind or body. The Vicar General of the Diocese of Brentwood, Monsignor Canon Kevin Hale, preached the homily, the recording of which is featured below:
