Originally published on

On Holy Saturday the community gathered at Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto in San Antonio, Texas to express their condolences to the Sorrowful Mother.

During the event many in the Hispanic community offered white roses to Mary and shared poems, music and prayers with the Virgen.  

Fr. Saturnino Lajo, OMI made his offering in the name of thousands of Oblate Missions benefactors who make the Oblate Missionaries work possible around the world.
