Morgan Sharpe’s talk with Gerry Bennett “Lourdes Council Member” on Radio Maria, Feb 2022

Morgan Sharpe recounts the series of incidents that took place at Lourdes in 1858, which led to ‘Our Lady’ of Lourdes becoming one of the most visited pilgrim sites in the world. The site has been the source of countless reported miraculous cures, 70 of which have been documented by medical science. This radio presentation is courtesy of Radio Maria Ireland.
