It is fitting that we celebrate this special feast and honor Mary's love and grace under this marvelous title of Our Lady of Lourdes by promoting the prayer of the rosary.

On February 11 Christians celebrate Mary under the title of “Our Lady of Lourdes”. In honor of this feast, Holy Cross Necklaces is offering a 10% discount coupon on all rosaries and Mary statues in the online store.
The story of the miracle at Lourdes began on February 11, 1858. Bernadette Soubirous was on her way to fetch fire wood and came to a narrow stream near the Grotto of Massabielle, in France. As she approached the stream she heard the sound of wind, and saw a bright light and a beautiful Lady in white above the rock in the grotto. She fell to her knees, reached into her pocket, took out her rosary and began to pray. Looking up Bernadette saw the Lady with yellow roses at her feet and holding a rosary which she was praying. The Lady, Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes, appeared to Bernadette for a total of 18 times with the request for penance and prayer, especially to pray the rosary. At Mary’s instruction, Bernadette dug a hole which later became a life-giving spring of healing waters where hundreds of miracles were reported. Thousands of pilgrims travel to the shrine at Lourdes in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes each year; many receive a miracle of spiritual or physical healing.
Owner, Marianne Buzzelli, states, "In honor and recognition of the great miracles at Lourdes and the intercessory graces given by Our Lady of Lourdes, Holy Cross Necklaces is pleased to offer a special 10% discount on all rosaries and statues of Mary.” The online store provides a wide selection of rosaries, including: mother of pearl, Swarovski, Our Lady of Lourdes rosary, an Our Lady of Grace rosary, and other specialty rosaries. The store also added a new line of religious statuary products last month with ornately sculptured and delicately painted statues of Mary including Our Lady of Grace, the Madonna and Child, and the Immaculate Heart Statue."
Holy Cross Necklaces offers a large selection of cross necklaces, saint medals, bibles, religious statuary, and other religious gifts designed to be works of beauty and inspiration.
