Travel to France with Salt + Light

March 20, 2011
Building on the success of our inaugural Blessed Journeys pilgrimage to Austria and Germany, we invite you to our next destination: France! Once again Connaissance Travel and Tours offers you a unique pilgrimage to enrich your faith.
We begin in Paris at Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle, and the Basilica of Sacré Coeur that dominates the Parisian landscape.  What would a visit to Paris be without stopping at the Eiffel Tower and a little cruise along the Seine? In Ernest Hemingway's posthumously published memoirs of his life in 1920s Paris, he wrote:
If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.
We will continue the journey to Nevers praying in the footsteps of St. Bernadette Soubirous, and stop in Paray-le-Monial where the Lord revealed his Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.
Continuing on to Avignon, we will remember St. Catherine of Siena who knelt and prayed there for the unity of the Catholic Church.  We conclude our visit with three days in the town of Lourdes, joining thousands of pilgrims to pray to the beautiful lady who appeared in the grotto to a young peasant named Bernadette.
When you travel with Salt + Light, you assist our work of spreading the flavor of the Gospel and the light of Christ through modern media. For this support, we will issue a tax receipt for the maximum allowable amount.
Join Father Thomas Rosica on this Blessed Journey as we celebrate the movable feast that is France, visit magnificent religious and historical sites, pray in the footsteps of the saints, and share in the culinary delights of la belle France, eldest daughter of the Church.
A bientôt! Find more information on the Blessed Journeys webpage.
