Lourdes, Tuesday, April FOUR, 2017, 9: 30 am: a strange smell of spring floats on the sanctuaries. Soon Mass will begin on the Grotto.

For 40 minutes, 78 patients from the Lot by carts and wheelchairs wait along the Gave with their stretcher inside the fog and drizzle:
The last office has fallen behind in fact it is necessary that the esplanade will be released. For all, this humid cold plumbs the bodies. That will preserve their comfort, the Hospitallers safeguard the sick by three woollens, two within the shoulders and one on the particular legs. Blankets made in Cahors, Gramat, Gourdon, Martel, Souillac, Vayrac, Cressensac.
These air jet reed the covers with multicolored squares! They have revisit the fore in Lourdes. Enough time when one was sulking knitting ends, the period when one crumpled insults woolens carefully crafted from the little hands of grandmothers is usually forgotten. Exit the terms "old-fashioned, old-fashioned, old-fashioned" or perhaps other abusive qualifiers! Yes, hand crafted knitting has jumped a new release, knitting returns today, in cities as with the countryside. He returned to fashion while in the communal hall, at home with friends because of the fireside or even at your parish house.
While sharing this know-how to be free from isolation especially during the winter period is really a laudable reason but it's not at all the goal. The first cause that these pensioners take that needles, to leave their homes is for a specific purpose: To cut drafts patients in Lourdes.
