The Home of the Mother in Lumezzane wanted to start the school year with a pilgrimage hike to the Conche Shrine to entrust the year to Our Blessed Mother.
After Sunday Mass, the Sisters and a group of families, Home of the Mother Youth, LHM of St. Apollonio Parish got everything we needed to go with haste to see the Mother of Mercy (the title under which She is venerated there). We made part of the journey by car and the last part on foot, which we offered for all of the Church’s needs and our personal intentions so that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother would be with us during the entire day.
We arrived at the beautiful field that surrounds the shrine, and part of our group wanted to go a little higher up to reach the summit where there was a huge cross and from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the landscape and see Lumezzane. After a brief rest, we got ready to eat lunch.
In the afternoon, we shared moments and graces experienced over the summer at different apostolic activities and at the Servant Brothers’ and Sisters’ Perpetual Vows ceremony. We also prayed the Rosary to Our Blessed Mother. We ended our pilgrimage with a moment of prayer before Jesus in the Tabernacle and singing to Our Blessed Mother to entrust all of our intentions to Her.
