    Background: FORTY-FIVE THOUSAND TROOPS ARE TAKING PART THIS WEEKEND IN AN INTERNATIONAL PILGRIMAGE TO LOURDES, THE FAMOUS SHRINE IN SOUTH-WEST FRANCE.

    THIS IS THE SEVENTH ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE ORGANIZED FOR SOLDIERS AND THEIR FAMILIES. REPRESENTATIVES HAVE TRAVELLED FROM MOST EUROPEAN COUNTRIES TO TAKE PART. THERE IS ALSO A GROUP OF AMERICAN SERVICEMEN FROM BASES IN FRANCE.

    SPECIAL SERVICES FOR THE TROOPS ARE BEING HELD AT THE BASILICA AND AT THE GROTTO ITSELF. FOR TWO DAYS THE SLOW PROCESSION PAST THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS HAS CONTINUED ALMOST WITHOUT A BREAK. MANY OF THE SOLDIERS ARE HELPING TO CARRY THE CRIPPLED AND THE AFFLICTED PILGRIMS ALONG THE WINDING PATHS OF THE SHRINE.
