Title: Lourdes appearances - the early investigation
Post by: PerEvangelicaDicta on February 05, 2018, 05:51:44 PM
Are there any books that capture the Church perspective of Lourdes in the early years? (prior to 'worthy of belief)  I'd love to read the thoughts of our clergy during that time -  sermons, correspondences, debate accounts.

I haven't heard of any or come across them, but they would be interesting. 

I imagine they'd all be in French, though.

Here is a link discussing someone who wrote six volumes on the Lourdes apparitions.

Not sure if you could access them or not.
