The annual pilgrimage to Lourdes in Southern France last May 2-7, 2012 was attended by the Order of Malta Philippines headed by Her Excellency Amb. Mercedes Tuason and joined by other members: Delza V. Lazatin, Dr. Leopoldo H. Lazatin, Roberto Novernario, Josephine E. Bantug and Carolina O. Llanillo.

The highlights of the week were the procession with the malades and the Eucharistic Celebration attended by all the participating associations of the Order of Malta worldwide.

As always, going to the foot of the mountains in Lourdes is a perfect time for solace, an ideal opportunity to quiet our minds so that we, as pilgrims, may truly encounter Christ through Mary.
