Feast of the transverberation of the heart of Blessed Mariam of Jesus Crucified

Saturday 24 - On the very spot (Pau) where the event took place and on the same day of the month (24th May), the transverberation of the heart of Blessed Mariam of Jesus Crucified was celebrated.

Feast of the transverberation of the heart of Blessed Mariam of Jesus Crucified

The day started with an interesting three-voice lecture on the topic: "Carmel and Bétharram : from Pau to India " given by Fr Gaspar Fernandez SCJ, Fr Stervin Selvadass SCJ and Sr. Vinaya D'Souza AC.
For several years, this feast could not be celebrated in the open air in front of the Hermitage, because of the weather.
This year, while Pope Francis was starting his visit to the Holy Land, birthplace of Mariam (could this be a sign?), we could enjoy the Solemn Mass on the very spot of the transverberation, presided by the Superior General of the Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus , Fr Gaspar Fernandez Perez SCJ , with Fr Jean -Luc Morin SCJ, the Regional Superior , Fr Beñat Oyhénart the Superior of the "Maison Saint Michel” and Fr Laurent Bacho SCJ, who had come from Abidjan to animate the training session for young people coming from several Vicariates of the Congregation. The celebration was attended by the members of the community "Maison Saint Michel” and religious from Betharram. The “Little Choir Saint Michael Garicoïts” led the liturgical animation.
In the afternoon , after a fraternal picnic , there was a beautiful procession to the Chapel of the Hermitage with a prayer session in front of the Altar and the Cross.
The adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament followed: the beautiful songs created a prayerful atmosphere. This beautiful day was brought  to an end with the singing of the Vespers.
In addition to the moments of celebration, some members of the “Little Choir Saint Michael Garicoïts” organized a sale for the missions of Betharram.
All went home full of hope and joy, strengthened in their faith.
