Cardinal to inaugurate Our Lady of Guadalupe chapel in Lourdes

.- Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera of Mexico City will preside at a Mass to consecrate a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe at the Shrine of Lourdes in France.
 
According to the Archdiocese of Mexico City's news service, the consecration will take place at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18. Cardinal Rivera will be joined by Bishop Jacques Perrier of Tarbes and Lourdes.
 
The new chapel was designed by the late Jose Barroso Chavez, who was the international president of the Red Cross and president for life of the Red Cross in Mexico.
 
Barroso also contributed to the building of the current Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City. 
 
A statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe sits in Rosary Square in Lourdes, where it was placed on May 12, 1966 by then-Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Miguel Dario Miranda.
 
The Shrine of Lourdes is famous for pilgrimages by the sick and is one of the most visited shrines in the world. It was built on the grotto where the Immaculate Conception appeared to St. Bernadette in 1858.
