23 Mar Travel to Cotignac
Taking advantage of the feast of Saint Joseph, we traveled to the beautiful city of Cotignac, in France. There we were able to visit the sanctuary of Saint Joseph du Bessillon, where the holy patriarch appeared to a humble shepherd.
Nearby is also the sanctuary of Notre-Dame de Grâces, where the Virgin Mary appeared, in 1519, on Mont Verdaille, to a woodcutter named Jean de la Baume.
We leave on Friday March 19th, heading to Marseille. From there, we drove to Cotignac and stayed at the pilgrims’ hostel. The next day interviews with the rector of the sanctuary of Notre-Dame de Grâces. Then we leave for Saint Joseph du Bessillon, about 10 kilometers away.
