French Web site offers to relay prayers for Pope’s trip to Lourdes

.- On the occasion of the Pope’s visit to Lourdes this weekend, a French religious Web site, called Croire.com, is offering to take all e-mail prayers to the grotto in Lourdes, reported AFP yesterday.

Croire.com  promises to take all e-mail prayers, received by Aug. 14, to the grotto before the Pope celebrates mass at the sanctuary.  

For five Euros ($6.15 US), one can also purchase a candle that will be placed at the grotto. The price includes a booklet, detailing the official events of the Pope's weekend visit.  

Pope John Paul II is expected to arrive in France, Saturday for a two-day visit to Lourdes, marking the 150th anniversary of the proclamation by Pope Pius IX of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.  

About 300,000 pilgrims are expected to attend the mass, presided by the Pope, Aug. 15, on the feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.
