2018 Military Pilgrimage to Lourdes

57th International Military Pilgrimage to Lourdes


This year’s pilgrimage theme “What have you done to your brother?” developed from a homily of Pope Francis in Redipuglia – an Italian Military cemetery – during Mass which was offered on the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1. (click here for full text of the homily)

The message of Lourdes is that hardened hearts can be converted through prayer and penance. True peace is only achieved when people of different nations, traditions and beliefs begin to realise that “I am my brother’s keeper!”
