New photos of the pilgrimage at Alencon to celebrate the feast of the Martin spouses, July 13, 2013

At the site of the Shrine at Alençon, please see new photos of the pilgrimage at Alençon to mark the feast of Louis and Zelie Martin.  You will see the pilgrims gathered on the bridge where the Martins first met, then in the countryside, including at the red brick house at Semalle where Thérèse lived with the wet nurse, Rose Taillé, in 1873-1874, and then the Mass at the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Alençon.  Cardinal Barbarin, Primate of Gaul, delivered a conference and presided at the Mass.  The newspaper Ouest-France remarked on June 4 that "the presence of the Primate of Gaul is a strong indication about the investigation of the dossier [of the presumed miracle] for the canonization of the Martin spouses."
