Possible Miracle at Lourdes: Almost-Blind Woman Recovers Her Sight
The Hospitality of Our Lady of Lourdes of Madrid, an archdiocesan pilgrim service organization, concluded its 101st pilgrimage on May 19, serving 800 participants, one of whom apparently was cured of severe visual impairment. This extraordinary event, however, will have to be studied before it can be qualified as a miracle. The most recent miracle at Lourdes, No. 70, was officially recognized in February 2018. This case could become No. 71. The adviser to the archdiocesan association of faithful, Father Guillermo Cruz, sent a statement to the different groups tha...
