The newly renovated Web page of the Marian shrine offers this opportunity at www.lourdes-france.com.
“The new Lourdes Internet site makes available the spiritual richness of the shrine to those who cannot come physically to Lourdes,” said Pierre Adias, the shrine’s communications director.
This year, an average of 393 intentions a day have arrived through the shrine’s electronic mail. In 1999, there were six intentions a day.
Last year, 10,500 daily accesses to the site were recorded. Every year 6 million pilgrims visit the shrine.
