If I were sick of some deadly disease, and it were revealed to me that I must die, yet none the less I should go to Lourdes; for if I should not be healed by Mary, I could at least learn how to suffer as a Christian ought. God has chosen this place - He only knows why, as He, too, alone chooses which man shall suffer and which be glad - He has chosen this place to show His power; and therefore has sent His Mother there, that we may look through her to Him.
- From the book Lourdes by Robert Hugh Benson (read online)
Behold, I will extend prosperity to her like a river, and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing stream; and you shall suck, you shall be carried upon her hip, and dandled upon her knees.
- Isaiah 66:12, the first reading for the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.
