This is going to be brief, since we’re heading out in a few minutes to join a friend who gives tours of Montpellier, and then probably out for a few drinks with him after that.
We’ve moved up our planned side trip to Lourdes. We originally planned to go next Saturday for just the day. However, while at Sunday Mass here in Montpellier, we learned about the local parish pilgrimage to Lourdes that begins today.
Although we’re not planning to crash their entire parish activity, the priest, while reading the announcements, did mention a Mass at one of the basilicas that we’d like to attend if possible. The Mass is Wednesday morning, so we’re going to leave tomorrow afternoon and spend the night in Lourdes. We’ll be back late on Wednesday, which is Labor Day here in France, so nothing will be open anyway.
More to come.
