    Story

    lady owns a small house in lourdes only a few minutes away from the cave where the Blessed virgin appeared to Bernadette, 150 years ago., she Welcomes-pilgrims, seeking for peace and healing,years after years, in the source of living water. The reception is offered for affordable prices and its main purpose consists of helping pilgrims to live near the Virgin Mary: a recovery in there lives into hope.but her house is now suffering from the presence of a devastating fungus, which is called << serpula >> This was caused by moisture coming from a rock that reached the house.Day by day the damage-keeps increasing because of this fungus growth which is destroying a floor.its restoration costs 42000 euros ,Despite her requests and the submitted justifications, the insurance unfortunately refuse to pay...I really would like to help this lady in raising the money required to complete the work.she is a remarkable woman.When she is not taken care of her house, she dose some volunteer work in India.She does not derive a profit from the reception she offers: her aim is to help the people she receives.for my part ,last year I stayed for a while with my son. She has supported and helped me in so many ways. I assure you that this cause is well worth being considered in helping this lady .she has a small barrel chapel in the house. It is a gathering place of silence and worship where the mass is celebrated for pilgrims , Could you please ,and if you could find it, make a donation for a cause that is truly worth the effort.indeed, without this remarkable lady and her hospitality in that beautiful house in Lourdes ( France ), many suffering people will not be able to find comfort in a physical or spiritual healing for which they are waiting for,With so much hope.May God bless anyone who will take the time to read these lines , josie,I have put some pictures for you to see thank you for sparring your time to read my lines
