This book (1914 edition) is freely available on Project Gutenberg through the efforts of the fine folks at Distributed Proofreaders. It's a neat little book about Benson's pilgrimage to Lourdes, with neat black and white photographs of Lourdes or relating to Lourdes. I learned something about this pilgrimage site, which I was curious about previously. For those who don't know, Lourdes is the place where Virgin Mary appeared to a little peasant girl (St. Bernadette). I don't think I can give the ...more

An eye-witness account that intrigues

Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson's reflections on his 3-day trip to Lourdes give the reader an insider's view, inasmuch as you are treated to both the spiritual and scientific understanding of what takes place at Lourdes. This is a quick and easy read, and well worth the effort.

This book is a delightful account of Fr. Benson's visit to Lourdes. The piety described is edifying, the miracles are reaffirming of the Catholic faith, and the writing is yet another example of Benson's wonderful prose.

“There is no arguing with people who say that, since there is nothing but Nature, no process can be other than natural. There is no sign, even from heaven, that could break down the intellectual prejudice of such people. If they saw Jesus Christ Himself in glory, they could always say that "at present science cannot account for the phenomenon of a luminous body apparently seated upon a throne, but no doubt it will do so in the course of time." If they saw a dead and corrupting man rise from the grave, they could always argue that he could not have been dead and corrupting, or he could not have risen from the grave. Nothing but the Last Judgment could convince such persons. Even when the trumpet sounds, I believe that some of them, when they have recovered from their first astonishment, will make remarks about aural phenomena.” 2 likes
