Bill Whitaker reports on the unexplained healings that have occurred at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes in the south of France, and the team of world-renowned doctors and researchers who investigate the claims of cures.
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.
