Our Lady of Lourdes, Piety and Healing
2015 Mission Conference and Catechism - Fr. Ioannes Petrus

Mission Conference

Theme: Our Lady of Lourdes and the Virtue of Piety
Summary: Piety is the foundation of all virtue. It gives us a filial affection for God as a most loving Father. This 'godliness' makes us love what God loves and abhor what God abhors. It is a virtue desperately needed in our times to dispel diabolical confusion, to make grace more readily accessible, and to restore God's right order. Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Bernadette show us how piety leads us to (1) Pray for the poor souls in purgatory, (2) Love the Church and our Lady, (3) Fulfill the duties of our state in life, (4) Discern the voices of Heaven above and distinguish them from the voices below, and (5) Grow in our devotion to the Most Holy Eucharist.

Handouts to Supplement the Mission's Conference Talks:

A central theme for these mission talks is our need to grow in piety. Here is a brief explanation to help us better understand this foundational virtue:
Piety that Saves

Fifteen apparitions of Our Lady at Lourdes illustrate a remarkable parallel to the Fifteen Decades of the Rosary, as explained in this handout:
Lourdes Rosary
Our life is a spiritual battle of eternal importance, yet many Christians never form an adequate plan to resist sin and acquire virtue. This handout helps us form a basic battle plan for our body and soul to fight against sin:My Battle Plan
A brief preparation to help us prepare for the Sacrament of Penance:
The Room
The following handouts contain basic explanations for the duties of various states in life. They are by no means exhaustive but help provide initial norms. Further prayer, meditation and study can help expand and personalize these guides. It is important to recall that God gives us the necessary grace to be faithful to the duties of our state. However, grace is lacking when we neglect our duties or step beyond their proper sphere.
Duties of Christians
Duties of the Father
Duties of the Mother
Duties of the Children
